Dublin, 1981, Scoff Records, Tape
Arguably the unrecognised gem of the first wave of irish punk/new wave bands. The Atrix started in 1978 and their catchy, atmospheric punk gems quickly garnered them a large following. 'Treasure On The Wasteland' featured on this tape is possibly one of the best songs of the early Irish punk scene, a song recently paid homage to by Paranoid Visions.

So was this "Tape only" or was it also on vinyl?ReplyDelete
Also released on vinyl, check out irishrock.org and you'll find her.ReplyDelete
Thanks for making all this stuff available. I've added you to my blogroll so hopefully a few more people will discover this garden of delights too!
Don't suppose you have anything by Sledgehammer? I have their "Money Is The Root Of All Evil" tape but did they record/release anything else?
All the best
Pretty sure Sledgehammer only releaased the one demo. I always thought they were up ther with Pink Turds live,but the demo was a let down.ReplyDelete
I have a live tape somewhere.
Try and find it Gary! also Lazy Rod get her ripped!ReplyDelete
That's the Sledgehammer demo ripped and posted on my blog... Feel free to repost it here if you want. Hope you like it!
Gary I would love to hear that live tape if you can get it ripped. Can you help out with the song titles on the demo?
Just came across your blog and having seen The Atrix on many occasions I was mightily impressed to come across the Procression album being posted. I had a vinyl copy of this which I lent to someone years ago and when it was eventually returned it was scratched to bits. Thank you for bringing this back record into my life and you're right Treasure On The Wasteland is a great song. Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete

Awesome! Thanks for posting this and - well, making me smile and remember all those years ago :-)ReplyDelete
Your blog is feckin' great!
This is a great find - I thought I'd never get hold of some of this stuff again. I've had 'Procession' running around in my head for years, now it's back on the speakers.ReplyDelete
Thanks for making all this available.
This is sooo cool!ReplyDelete
John Borrowman was my father, and i've tried to find something with The Atrix since ever but it's been impossible until now :D
I'm so happy!
