Neighbourhood Watch - Erasers
Supposedly Perth band Erasers have yet to play a gig. The lowkey two-piece include Shock! Horror!'s Rupert Thomas and the woman known-only as Rebecca. There's something primal about the outfit that makes them stand out above the crowd of post-punk wannabes... possibly the finest example of that, dare-we-say, UKesque early '80s scene that gave us Marine Girls and Au Pairs influence here since Jemima Jemima passed away (or split to Berlin...). Dreamy yet somehow disconcerting... maybe even scary. So before they gig they have issued an EP via the Owls label (what is with Perth and their current crop of lil bands and labels?) and it's worth more than just being fancy decoration on the end of your pencil.
