The Victims

Looks like the guys over at 1977 Records just recently put out a record from arguably the best punk band to ever happen to Australia — The Victims. There have been a handful of 7″ bootlegs over the last few years, but this LP has a lot to offer that we’ve not been able to get our hands on. The Victims hailed from Perth in the later part of the 1970s. If you haven’t been able to get your hands on any of their material — then we think this LP is a must-have. Compiling material from their singles and offering 9 demo versions of songs, Sleeping Dogs Lie looks to be a pretty sick compilation of Australia’s favorite sons. They’re just the right amount of aggression and they’re loud and snotty and brash and — like most of the best punk bands — they’re sick of being stuck somewhere [listen to “Perth Is A Culture Shock”] Anyway, check out a track below and prepare yourself to blow a little money on this one…
