SATURDAY MARCH 22ND
Songs from the early years: 1989-1993
Featuring tracks from the Undies self funded debut and ARIA award winning album 'Get to Notice', as well as tracks from the rare 'Nice' EP and the band's seminal second album, 'Leaves Me Blind' (Rolling Stone Magazine's Best Australian Album 1992). This set will re-capture the band's headline gigs in the early days of Fitzroy's The Punters Club and their early support slots to the likes of The Cure, Ride and My Bloody Valentine.
SUNDAY MARCH 23RD
Songs from 1994 and beyond
Featuring tracks from the band's breakthrough album 'Dream It Down' (the single from the album 'Losin' It' came in at #19 in triple j's Hottest 100 of 1994), the independently produced and ARIA nominated 'Rushall Station', the experimental 'Ways T'Burn', the electro tinged 'Cold Feeling' and last year's acclaimed comeback album 'Weekend'. This set will feature tracks that found their feet on UK and US tours of the mid-nineties as well countless national headline tours with the likes of Grant McLennan, Drop City, Autohaze and Gersey.
To help celebrate 'Past Present' – undergroundLOVER's 25th anniversary shows, Rubber Records will release 'Can For Now', a third single from last year's extraordinary 'Weekend' album. Some rare early recordings will also be available as B sides as part of the release. A 1989 demo of 'Get to Notice' recorded by the legendary Simon Grounds and the band's tribute to Lou Reed with their 1993 version of the Velvet's 'I'll Be Your mirror'. All tracks will be available as digital downloads on iTunes from March 14th.
'Past Present' (taken from the title of an unreleased Bennie/Giarrusso song from 1982) promises to be an exciting and emotional exploration of undergroundLOVERS both past and present. It will be a rare chance to hear live, some of the songs from the past before new undergroundLOVERS material surfaces in the very near future.
