Review

Review Text Witchetty Pole collects a great deal of the Cannanes' early work (circa 1986/87) and offers it to a U.S. audience -- the compilation lifts tracks from the Bored, Angry, and Jealous EP (the band's vinyl debut), the Happy Swing cassette EP, and The African Man's Tomato, their brilliant debut LP. Most of this material lies on the rawer, looser, "shambling" end of the Cannanes' body of work (as one might expect) -- by Tomato, however, the band had tightened and controlled its approach quite a bit more. Despite its slapped-together feel, Witchetty Pole does an excellent job of containing all of these recordings, and it's bound to appeal to several audiences: Cannanes fans who otherwise wouldn't have access to the early Australian releases; general fans of Australian pop; and fans of the entire "shambling" indie genre (Calvin Johnson's involvement in these recordings is unsurprising, to say the least). ~ Nitsuh Abebe
