Pineapples From The Dawn Of Time - Shocker LP Re-release

The Pineapples From The Dawn Of Time have been given an extension on their lifespan in recent years, and anyone lucky enough to catch their set at Pig City would understand how justified this is. The bands only album, Shocker, was released in 1987, and twenty years on it is finally making the move to CD. Shocker has been remastered to make the songs as quirky as ever, and beautifully repackaged and adorned in some of the best/strangest artwork to come out of Queensland. The Pineapples' are an acquired taste, but if you can handle the faux-psychedelia and gratuitous name checking of sex, drugs, and poultry on offer here then you're in for a treat. Along with the original tracks comes an alternative version of 'Too Much Acid', as well as film clips for 'Too Much Acid' and 'Charlie'. The album is available to purchase in most local music stores.

To prepare you for whats in store, here is the video for 'Charlie'.
