Primal Park 2009 Reissue (CD)+ bonus tracks
Deluxe reissue of Mondo Rock's1979 album Primal Park including 7 bonus tracks and a 24 page booklet.
The Mondo Rock of 1976-1978 honed their live skills on a seemingly endless series of one-nite stands across the country. The line-up took some time to gel, eventually settling with Peter Laffy (guitar; ex-Fox, Freeway, Jim Keays’ Southern Cross), Tony Slavich (keyboards; ex-Richard Clapton Band, Ariel), Simon Gyllies (bass) and Iain McLennan (drums; ex-Richard Clapton Band, Ariel). Randy Bulpin (guitar; ex-Toads, Ready Rubbed, One Nite Stand). It was this line-up who recorded the half-studio / half-live debut Primal Park. Our deluxe reissue of Primal Park adds the 1978 debut single 'The Fugitive Kind' along with seven further bonus tracks. Liner notes are by Ian McFarlane and include a recent interview with Ross Wilson. The CD was digitally remastered by Gil Matthews and Ross Wilson - an interesting fact is that Matthews features on the last four of these bonus cuts, as he was Mondo Rock's drummer in the line-up post Primal Park . The last track, 'Perhaps, Perhaps' was written by Wilson and Stephen Cummings and would become a hit single for Cummings' band The Sports in 1980 (as 'Perhaps').
