Tym Records 047 Turnpike - Where There is Nothing 12 inch
Turnpike were formed in Brisbane several scenes ago and have over this time proven to be the fly in the ointment by playing sporadically, barely releasing anything and printing too few T shirts when fans of the band wanted them.
They have always sounded like Turnpike, even when fads and trends come and go to influence less staunch musicians. Angular, harsh, distorted, intimidating at times and yet always fascinating and enthralling. Their live shows can be life affirming and changing, which until now has been the main way you would hear this band.
Turnpike have laboured over this release that it quintessentially Australian and was well worth the wait. This album is music for people who want to work for it with the rewards being given back ten fold. It's as long as it needs to be with as many songs as are needed to make a great album. There's no fat or excess here. It is the classic R'n'R three piece striped down to it's basic elements.
This limited edition 12" is out exclusively on Tym records. Some of us have waited many years for this. Some of you don't know you've waited, but here it is just to show you that music is, and will always be relevant, important and essential.
