New Christs - Sydney Australia 1983

New Christs were from Sydney Australia and were started by former Radio Birdman singer Rob Younger in 1980 and released their first single in early 1981. Younger continued the band with a completely different line up after the single. On these recordings Rob Younger sings, Chris Masuak (also from Radio Birdman and later in The HItmen) and Kent Steedman (from Celebate Rifles) both on guitar, Tony Robertson (previously in the Punk band The 31st and later in The Hitmen) on  bass, Mark Kingsmill (also in The Hitmen and The Hoodoo Gurus) on drums, with Ron Peno (also from The 31st) singing harmonies. This line up recorded two single. These recordings are both audience tapes and the sound quality is good. At the Tivoli show the band were supposed to be the opening band for Iggy Pop but Iggy called in sick that night. The tape didn't come with a complete date but it could be July 1 or July 3.
