this freaky video for “Circa ‘65” which the Darling Downs’ Ron Peno and Kim Salmon
call “a ‘countripolitan’ song filmed in a neo-cubist style” — our eyes are
poppin’! Peno and Salmon, of course, comprise Australian’s Darling Downs, and
the song comes off their new album From
One To Another (Carrot Top Records).
if those names ring a bell and you cast your memories back to Peno’s old band
the Died Pretty and Salmon’s myriad outfits (Scientists, Surrealists, Beasts of
Bourbon, etc.) then go directly to the head of the Oz-rock class.
