This is very limited vinyl re-issue (300) of an incredibly rare cassette only release (100). Its a great pressing and remastered with excellent audio quality despite being described as "lo-fi" on the obi. It features original vocalist Sharron Weatherill, Renestair EJ (guitar & sax), Charles Tolnay (lead guitar), Chris Wiley (bass) and Andrew Stosch (drums).
After forming in Sydney in 1982 and going through quite a few different line ups they eventually changed their name to Zulu Rattle. Reforming in Adelaide in 1986 they recorded this cassette only release (1986) and their 1st LP Human Skin Suit (1988). Members who passed through Bloodloss have connections to the following bands - Grong Grong, King Snake Roost, Primevils, Lubricated Goat, Acid Drops, Crawling Eye, Salamander Jim and Fear & Loathing. In the 1990s Mark Arm from Seattle's Mudhoney also joined and recorded with Bloodloss.
The obi calls it a "cacophony of angular post-punk, peppered with free-form mayhem and grungy back beats" and that is a fairly good description of what lies in the grooves of this exceptional release. To any collector of fine Australian punk this is an absolutely essential reissue - get it before it disappears again and you regret it...
