Primitive Calculators - Primitive Calculators (CD 2004)

Alongside Ollie Olsen’s band Whirlywirld, Primitive Calculators were leading lights
of the so-called Melbourne’s ‘Little Band’ movement of the late 1970’s. The ‘Little
Bands’ concept was based around the premise that anyone could get up on stage and
perform for 15 minutes. Primitive Calculators delivered a raw, savage, kinetic sound
that could only be compared with the New York No Wave (which encompassed the
likes of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks and James Chance and the Contortions). The
band built up a strong inner-city following and issued one independent single in 1979,
‘Do That Dance’ / ‘I Can’t Stop It’. The Calculators had their final performance at the Seaview Hotel in early1980, the night before Denise left for Europe. In early 1986, Primitive Calculators reassembled to record two tracks with producer/musical director Ollie Olsen, for the soundtrack to Richard Lowenstein’s feature film Dogs in Space

Re-release of self titled live LP with bonus tracks and video.
Track 17 recorded in London as Zyé yé yé.

Whirlywirld - The Complete Studio Works (CD 2002)

Legend has it that late-70s Melbourne saw a music scene that was divided between that based south of The River, centred on the The Birthday Party, and that based north of The River. Even the northern scene had its own artistic schism between an emotion-destitute electronic music as encouraged by Philip Brophy and a rampant, chaotic musical blend of electronic and punk that became known as the Little Band scene. Whirlywirld were part of the north-of-The-River scene and part of the Little Band scene. This is the world the movie Dogs In Space attempted to capture. Indeed, Ollie Olsen, who fronted Whirlywirld, was the musical producer for this movie. The band was a pioneer of synthesiser punk, coming across with something of the experimentation of Suicide, Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire, and also with the more song-oriented sound of Joy Division. The Primitive Calculators was also a key band in this scene. Drummer John Murphy (Slub, Dumb and the Ugly, The Associates, Shriekback, Spk and many more) was a key member. Andrew Duffield who later joined Models was also a member.

O Yuki Conjugate - Primitive 1983-1987 (CD 1996)

O Yuki Conjugate is an organic ambient musical group, sometimes based in London. Their music has also been categorized as darkwave, but perhaps more gentle than others in that genre. Members of the group vary, but include C. Elliot, R. Horberry, T. Horberry, A. Hulme, M. McGeorge, D. Mudford, and P.A. Woodhead. Instruments on the recording Peyote include tongue drums, roto-toms, bongos, congas, "big bean," "found percussion," drum machine, wind chimes, loops, frying pan, bass, samples, keyboards, fractal guitar, e-bow, flutes, chants, radio, wildlife, tablas, berimbau, nose-singing, and vocals. Their music is, apparent from this list, percussive and inventive, but it is also atmospheric.
