The Avalanches

Although I’ve been a fan since hearing them on a winamp cast about 5 years ago, I had never scene the video for frontier psychiatrist, all I can say I swell, almost as swell as the video for Since I Left You. A music group from Melbourne, Australia, best known for their live DJ sets and debut album “Since I Left You“, which was assembled from approximately 3,500 vinyl samples.

The Avalanches began in 1995 as Alarm 115, a noise-punk outfit inspired by Drive Like Jehu, The Fall and Ultra Bidet. The band – Darren Seltmann, Robbie Chater, Tony Diblasi and Manabu Etoh – bought all their instruments at junk shops, where they also discovered piles of old records. When Etoh was deported and Alarm 115 ended, those records became the core of a new project. Chater was a film student at RMIT, and had access to a recording studio there, which he and Seltmann used to turn said vinyl into a 30-song demo tape labeled Pan Amateurs. In 1997, A new lineup (Seltmann, Chater, Diblasi, and Gordon McQuilten) was assembled to play the tunes live, debuting in July under the name Swinging Monkey Cocks. Their first four shows were played under different names.

I’ve provided you with a fantastic torrent of “since I Left You” ripped in -APX VBR. It’s the original Austrailan first release of the album with every sample in tact. Later releases of the album had samples either removed or replaced with cheap imitations due to legal issues.
