Mondo Rock AnthologyIn the glory days of Australian pub rock, Mondo Rock stood out because they weren’t afraid to be soft and sophisticated.

Sure, they could rock out like everyone else – check out No Time, Baby Wants To Rock and Aliens Walk Among Us – but guitarist Eric McCusker had a knack for crafting timeless pop, with classics such as State Of The Heart, Come Said The Boy, Chemistry and Summer of ’81, while singer Ross Wilson delivered perverse pop pleasures like Mondo Sexo and The Modern Bop. This two-CD, 30-song collection shows that Mondo Rock should have conquered the world. This is primo Mondo.

The Complete Anthology is out October 20 via Bloodlines/Mushroom.
