Rose Tattoo, Tatts: Live In Brunswick. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10

If the past is another country then to many who never saw or lived through the bright lights and garnish of the 1980s, the pub rock scene of Australia must seem like a step into a completely different planet, one that was undoubtedly rich in expression, in its representation of a culture untouched by the excess and the absurdly gluttonous. The past may be another country but to those who saw a truth in the voice of bands such as Rose Tattoo, what they saw and heard during those punishment filled lyrics and chastisement to the pretence and pretentious, was worth living in the present for.
