The Wet Taxis are from Australia, although you'd never guess it. No hints of sporting prowess here, no beach culture, surfing or mention of Barbeques!
They sound like a sort of antipodean , but less funny, version of Danny and the Dressmakers, but more tooled up in the instrument department.
They later turned into a very competent garage rock combo......how boring.
But this tape is up there in the pantheon of chaotic bedroom rock recordings, competing with "200 Cancellations" as the most sprawling epic of DIY cassette rock.
The best tape I've heard from OZ.
Apparently this was Assembled from bits off 1,000 Cassettes! This makes the Homosexuals seem to have the production rate of Scott Walker!
