ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PB:100, a catalogue number and album title in one. Ninety-nine underrated indie pop releases on the independent Popboomerang Records label have come before!

PB:100 is a compilation of 32 newly commissioned recordings and unreleased songs from the Popboomerang roster and a handful of musical friends. This compilation pulls together many styles of songs and sessions so cohesively; timeless hooks, harmonies and melodies binding them all together!

Disc 1 kicks off with The Killjoys and their bombastic tribute to the Popboomerang label, Marching Out Of Time; Sydney band The Gaze drop their first ever recording with the charming Wouldn't Wanna Miss You, and Mick Thomas contributes a folky version of Patti Smith’s obscure Mermaid Song.

Livingstone Daisies serve up a growling roots rocker with Turning Blue, Danny McDonald crafts a chiming ode to the Yarra River with The Melbourne Divide, and The Earthmen visit their vaults to unearth Legroom, an unreleased track from their aborted 1995 album sessions with Wayne Connolly.

The tunes keep rolling on as The Little Murders reveal their not so secret obsessions with London with Kings Cross Dawning, Go-Go Sapien conjure up the cheek sleazy Pandora's Box and Underminers provide a live recording of Brave In Other Ways, which would turn out to be the last song they wrote together before disbanding.

PB:100 also reveals the first solo recording from iconic Australian musical poet Adam Gibson (ex Modern Giant/Aerial Maps) with Empty Bars (with lyrical shout-outs to The Go-Betweens and Weddings Parties Anything) and contains a brand new jangly gem from the Angie Hart-fronted Four Hours Sleep in I Don’t Know. Melbourne tunesmith Tim Reid also teases his fans, who have been waiting 11 years for him to finish his sophomore album, with the punchy In The Dark.

The bonus tracks are a lucky dip of previously unheard recordings. Lazybirds (featuring ex Rainyard/Header/Ammonia members) deliver the power popping Slinky Skanky, The Weekend People accepted a challenge to record a cover from the Popboomerang catalogue and deliver an epic take on Underminers’ TV Song, and Adam Dennis crafts a lyrically biting song in You’re So Mean about a certain Australian politician (can you guess who?).

We also unearth a lost (sounds like the Sunnyboys) recording called Happy Together from early '80s Brisbane band Curiosity Shop, exhume a lost recording from the vaults of disbanded Melbourne band Celadore (10 AM In A Lion's Den) and officially release the label anthem Popboomerang from UK band Kelly’s Heels for the first time.

There have been many times when it felt like we would never get to PB:100, reaching “the ton” is a fitting time to proudly sit back, tune in, and contemplate the future of the Popboomerang label.

Whatever does happen with the future of the label, Grand Atlantic’s Never Say Goodbye provides a fitting full stop to end this compilation and an amazing 100-release chapter in the Popboomerang history to date.
