This could possibly be one of my favorite records to put on. The Dissociatives are two Australian guys, one who I spoke about a few weeks back, Daniel Johns, the Silverchair guy, and Paul Mac who is a popular DJ also in Australia.
The most impressive thing about this record is that it was all made on a laptop. Which gives musicians like myself hope to being able to make a good sounding record for a cheap price.
Before reading on further check out the video for their song “Somewhere Down the Barrel” to get an idea of how this DJ and rock guitarist have put an incredible melody together.
This 2004 album contains more catchy song after catchy song. It is something you can tell that these guys worked hard on.
They first got together in the ’90s with their project called I Can’t Believe it’s Not Rock, for which they only released and EP for, check out the Song “Rain” from I Can’t Believe it’s Not Rock.
This Dissociatives record is their first and only full album to date. Though they have told the press that they do not consider the band a side project to their other acts. It’s hard to say. It’s only been about seven years.
