The infamous late 70's punk/new wave/power pop (they kept changing their mind on what it was...) compilation Lethal Weapons was a tentative major label funded foray into the emergent Australian punk movement. It was short lived and much maligned, (apparently, they didn’t “mean it man!”) but was an important release in that it contains the earliest recordings of, amongst others: The Boys Next Door ( Nick Cave / Birthday Party), Teenage Radio Stars (Sean Kelly & James Freud - Models), The Survivors (The New Christs), Jab (Models) and The Negatives (Sacred Cowboys).

Most of the bands would not last out the 1970’s, but, with so many of the individuals involved going on to significant careers, this album represents a fascinating glimpse into their beginnings.
