#1. Smudge - Split with C Minus 7" (1998)

Smudge / C Minus 7" Split (1998)
Side A:
01. Hot Potato (Acoustic Demo)
02. Bread Crumb Trail (Acoustic Demo)
I didn't include the C Minus tracks as I don't know who they are.

This post is the first in a series of some of my favorite 7 inches.
Released in 1998 on BLIND RECORDS the 2 Smudge tracks on
this record are acoustic demos of songs from the 1996 release
"You Me Carpark... Now!". This release is quite rare although I
found it at a second hand record store, and paid $10 for it. For
those who know nothing about Smudge, they are an indie group
from Sydney (Australia) and were active between 1991 and 1999,
they released three studio albums and a bunch of other stuff
(7 inches etc). Initially asked by Half A Cow Records owner, Nic
Dalton, to record a track for his first 7" release, the group went
on to record the "Don't Want To Be Grant McLennan 7" Single",
which became John Peel's record of the week upon release. The
band still occassionally play shows although they haven't showed
up in my hood since 2004, when they played a few shows to
celebrate the re-release of the "Manilow" LP (with Bonus Tracks).
Although late last year Half A Cow Records celebrated its 16th
birthday with a bunch of all star shows around the country.
Smudge (acoustic) was advertised in the line-up but come the
night Tom Morgan felt ill and couldn't play, this also cancelled
headliners Sneeze, as Morgan is also a member of this group along
with Nic Dalton (Godstar, Lemonheads, Hummingbirds etc). So I
left that gig very early in a drunken rage, and killed a bunch of
people on the walk home (for looking at me funny). No not really,
actually Sneeze still played but I couldn't be bothered as I was
disapponted with the whole event, apparently it got bad reviews.
The quality is a bit ordinary, I'd rate it A-
Adam Yee - Bass
Alison Galloway - Drums, Vocals
Tom Morgan - Guitar, Vocals

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
