Class Of 81 (1981)

Happy 2011! In a few days, the Class of 81 will be celebrating their 30th anniversary...

Simon Grigg put this out on Propeller, and over on his site he gives heaps of info on this comp, the neglected little brother of his massive AK79.

My copy has a small amount of surface noise, but there's a bit of popping particularly on the the first three tracks of side two. However, the Screaming Meemees track can be downloaded all clean and legit, and Blam Blam Blam's is on their 'Complete' CD; both can be purchased at

For fans of The Chills, The Clash, and the Cure.

Here We Go


  1. Heh . I finally get hold of a digitised copy ;)

    Hopefully the full reissue is coming this year.

    Incidentally the Meemees you want is the 2009 remastered version (as a bonus track on the album), also on Amplifier and on iTunes globally

  2. Brilliant -- drop us a note when the official reissue is available (any possibility of vinyl??) and I will take this one down.
