Australian group Climbing Frame led by Barry Wolifson, a producer /engineer and Amanda Brown, a female multi-player who has been active in indie bands such as The Go-Betweens and Cleopatra Wong since the latter half of the 1980s. This is their early work and self-produced 12" that include five tunes of DIY sound with violin, oboe, saxophone, etc. and a glimpse of free wave feeling in 1984. In paticular, B2 "Don't Be A Doo Bee" with nice rhythm beat, strenge-type drumming, electronic sounds, various instrumental tones, A2 "Dalai Generator" new wave style with Amanda Brown's vocal, B3 "Home Is Where The House Is" unique avant-pop, A1 "Love Music" experimental new wave tune. Also recommend to play as 33rpm+4. One of the Australian underground records where more interesting works seem to be sleeping.

80年後期以降にはインディバンドThe Go-BetweensやCleopatra Wongなどでも活躍する女性マルチ奏者Amanda Brown、数々のプロデュースを手掛けエンジニアの一面も持つBarry Wolifsonを中心としたオーストラリアのClimbing Frameによる84年の初期プライベート盤。ヴァイオリン、オーボエ、サックス等を交えながらフリー・ウェーブ的感覚も随所に垣間見えるDIYサウンド全5曲。疾走感のあるリズムに変拍子のドラミング、電子音、各楽器の音色が絡み合うB2”Don't Be A Doo Bee”、Amanda Brownのヴォーカルもいい塩梅なニューウェイブ調のA2”Dalai Generator”、ユニークなアヴァン・ポップB3”Home Is Where The House Is”、エクスペリメンタル・ニューウェイブ・チューンA1”Love Music”を収録。33回転+4プレイもオススメ。まだまだ面白い作品が眠っていそうなオーストラリア地下シーンの1枚。
