Aches and Shakes:2002-2012–A Decade Of Popboomerang! (Popboomerang Records)
Scott Thurling is one of the most honorable men in the music business in Australia; I’ve known him for a number of years and think he is a true champion of local music and in particular pop. Ten year ago he started up Popboomerang and this double disc set shows off why he is so good finding great Australian music. Every song just deserves to be on there. Of course it was going to be hard to put everything on there but what he has chosen shows off the label in great style. He has diversified from pop to include some folky titles on his label. Some of my favorite songs on the CD are by Tim Reid, Sneeze, Adrian Whitehead, The Sunshine Ponies, Skipping Girl Vinegar, Brilliant Fanzine, Brian Estepa, Celadore, Go Go Sapien, The Bon Scotts and heaps more. I think this is really a brilliant compilation CD and a great showcase of Popboomerang Records which really is one of the finest record labels out now in Australia putting out top quality music. If you live in Melbourne go down to The Tote this Sunday Afternoon to celebrate 10 years of the label with a bunch of his bands playing. Gonna be a great afternoon/evening show. Congrats on ten years mate.
