Machinations's - Big music (1985) is one of the best new-wave albums, and is among the best of australian releases. Uplifting, wisely made, typical of the era and that's why is it simply new-wave at it's peak. Before and after is debatable. Around 1985 was the big time. Take snippets of the teaser: My heart's on fire ; Execution of love ; No say in it ; Pressure sway ....
