The story of Melbourne's Amyl and the Sniffers begins when friends and former housemates Amy Louise Taylor, Bryce Wilson, Dec Martens and Gus Romer wrote and released a collection of songs in less than twelve hours. You can hear the urgency and energy in the tracks. 'Giddy Up' EP was followed several months later by Big Attraction, a punk-fueled riot of instant classic anthems. The band are described as "possessed by the spirit of seventies Australian rock" and there's a clear love of local music history in their sound. But equally there's an independent and original voice that commands attention. This full-length combines both EPs in one place, offering a powerful reminder of their prowess to existing fans, or an unforgettable introduction to new listeners.
