Plenty of Aussie bangers that year, including this one:
Video is rather lame, better to just listen.
Isn’t The One I Love 87?
Yes it is.
This one was released in Dec 1988 so qualifies for this thread, though most of its chart success was in 1989:
Probably the greatest EBM track ever
Excuse my ignorance, what is EBM?
Electronic Body Music. Think Industrial or Belgian New Beat, and you won’t be far off.
I don’t suppose vaguely crusty reggae influenced anarchopunk is the DIS genre of choice, but Culture Shock’s Onwards And Upwards LP is one of my all time favourite records. One of those LPs I could not listen to for several years, and still be able to sing along with every word.
I had to listen to this to find out what this genre sounds like. Can’t hear much reggae. Ska, maybe. Sounds like a mix of The Clash and Madness. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing.
