(Quemada) 7-inch $9.00

The bleak punk / dark folk solo outlet for Sean Bailey’s not-so-cheery take on the world picks up where Winter’s Blade (Inverted Crux) left off — with an extra level of heavy and gloom. Bailey’s been a constant presence in the Melbourne musical landscape for years, running his label and doing his bit for the sprawling hypnotic tinkering of Paeces, the stripped down punk of Wasted Truth, the goth punk of Tax, and the new wave shenanigans of The [Australian] Vivian Girls.
