Various - "Closed Circuits" 2LP

Image of Various - "Closed Circuits" 2LP


Closed Circuits features detailed liner notes and track-by-track commentary by David Nichols as well as an original design by Michael Trudgeon, the graphic designer for the seminal Melbourne ‘80s cassette fanzine ‘Fast Forward’ (which was a vital outlet for this music back in the day), as well as numerous images.

‘Closed Circuits’ provides a unique and invaluable look at the specifically Australian beginnings of key elements of the music of the 80s: music that is more popular and examined more closely now than at any time since it was originally made.
