Altar Ego - War / Altar Ego (198?)

Catchy post-punk from Australia. No date on the record, but this is most likely from '83.

Here's a video they did for the song War.

Free 1984 Sect. One (1984)

Great 7" compilation that originally came with a booklet. Portion Control start things out with an odd electro dance tune. Rinf do a nice bit of noisy post punk. The highlight for me are the two dark minimal EBM type tracks from Die Form. So no record cover, but each band contributed some postcard sized art.

Martin O'Cuthbert - Songs for Square Pegs (1981)

Strange minimal synth tunes, the first three songs are especially great. He released a few 7" records back in the day. A collection of his early stuff called For Alien Ears can still be obtained from his website (none of these songs are on it)
