||ITR 339 LP
Best known for their classic ‘Television Addict’, that song is but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the story of Australia’s legendary The VIctims. Having self-released two godhead 7-inches during their brief existence, the seven songs on those singles are absolute cannon at this point. Quintessential, pure, unfuckwithable. And all that is just side one of the LP. Side two contains a bounty of unreleased-for-decades demos of nine otherwise undocumented Victims originals. Demos in name alone, these properly recorded songs brim with all the identifying marks of the known Victims classics…irreverence, taking the piss, murderers, and an invigorating youthful attitude. Essential.
