It's definitely Australian, but it's more post-punk leaning than buzzsaw ROCKS or News or PSYCHO SURGEONS... though the YOUNG IDENTITIES probably rate right there.
It's more a discography of a label than a KBD/Murder Punk "greatest punk hits" deal... as Dropkick Records said:
The bands here are among the most primitive, inept and snotty DIY noise to be found in Australia at the time. The singles sold out their tiny hand made pressings (usually 100 to 200) within months and quickly became highly sought-after.
you'll definitely hear Bauhaus/Joy Division and "I can play music, even though I can't play music" kinda arty pretense.
That said, it's raw and crude and hilarious and great.
