Young Identities - Positive Thinking + 2 7" (540)



"This fine label, run by Timmy Hefner of Chaos in Tejas fame, is reissuing the entire Shake/Savage catalog of singles from Australia’s punk era, with this one and the related Bodysnatchers the first out of the gate. “Positive Thinking (Negative Reaction)” punched its way out of late ‘70s Brisbane, dripping with mud and scum – somehow singer Clay figures out the Darby Crash-meets-Wimpy style of vocals at the same moments as they did, and they’re so obnoxious and huge sounding that they become a far more distinct part of their whole thing than most “lead guitarists” who have ever existed. Really late for this sort of rawness by US standards – 1979 – and yet these three songs drag the knuckle Roto-Tiller deep into the earth below. Fuckin’ gross and awesome shit, especially when they nearly fall apart on “Mass Appeal.” This record could have greatly improved my past couple days, which is a shame as I’m just putting it on now. 540 has no web presence but this one (and the Just Urbain and Bodysnatchers) should be available at most of the usual suspects for just a little while longer."
(Doug Mosurock - STILL SINGLE)
