Quite a few songs from non-Australian parts of the world have been hogging this blog in the past few days (and whose fault is that, Peter? Hmm???), so I thought I’d get back to something Antipodean.
Here’s the unbelievably good live band Matt Finish with “High Times For The Poor” (1981):
Matt Finish – “High Times For The Poor” (live) (1981)
“High Times For The Poor” appears as a bonus track on the reissued and remastered live EP, Fade Away (1981). The original EP (which I had – and treasured – on vinyl) contained five tracks and lasted 22 minutes. The reissued/remastered CD (Fade Away Sessions, released last year) added another 12 (!) tracks and runs for 75 minutes. I like CDs.
As a bonus, here’s an alternate take of “High Times For The Poor”, also on the reissued CD:
