Various Artists - Alternative Animals
A double CD pack (CD ROM and music CD) documenting the Australian punk scene from 1976-79. The idea is to give a voice to those who contributed to the punk scene to let them tell their story and to talk of the motivations, influences, ambitions and ups and downs of this ground-breaking movement. The comprehensive CD-ROM allows the user to explore bands, family trees, fanzines, releases and venues. Within the interactive screens are video interviews, live band footage, artwork, posters, photographs and fanzine material.

The outstanding success of two like-minded collections, Shock's Do The Pop! and Feel's Tales From The Australian Underground has proven that a market for this kind of release exists. This CD features legendary groups not only from Sydney and Melbourne, but Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide as well.

Okay CD-ROM is a slightly outmoded format, but it's playable on your computer, and it features hour upon hour of interactive fun. The inclusion of never before seen live video footage from the era (including two tracks from Nick Cave's Boys Next Door circa 1978 and The Saints live in 1977) and unreleased recordings from The Boys Next Door - makes this a must for any fan of the era.
