Twelve-track compilation of Oz indie legends, with bonus rarities CD
The Moles are one of those bands that shouldn’t be shoved in a box of influences. Their lo-fi melodic punk psychedelia was almost unique even when it bore echoes of Syd Barrett and the Soft Boys. There’s a skewed, luminous grandeur about the songs from 1991’s Untune The Sky (“What’s The New Mary Jane?”, “Wires”), even if writer-leader Richard Davies did create more polished work on his later solo albums and as one half of the great Cardinal. What does it say about the music business that Richard is now training to be a lawyer?
