Rejectionville is the definitive 37-track anthology of this perennially under-appreciated garage power-pop outfit from Perth, Western Australia. Kryptonics emerged in 1985 from the same creative melting-pot that spawned The Stems and The Triffids. Over a 7-year period they recorded some fantastic garage-soaked tunes, with an array of line-ups that included future members of Lubricated Goat, You Am I, New Christs, Hard-Ons, The Chevelles, Challenger 7 and (the reformed) Radio Birdman. The Kryptonics existed in the pre-digital era and their vinyl catalog (which now demands high prices on eBay) has never previously been issued on CD. Subsequently, they have remained one of the more enigmatic bands to emerge from the much-celebrated '80s Australian garage-rock'n'roll scene. A band that many have heard of, rather than heard. Rejectionville includes the band's entire recorded output plus an extra CD of unreleased live and studio tracks. It documents the band's journey from young Scientists/Cramps wannabes to a more mature, Detroit rock-flecked power-pop sound. This 2CD is presented in a deluxe gatefold card wallet with a 28-page booklet full of liners, photos and a "Pete Frame"-style family tree that maps the band's extensive genome. This is an essential purchase for the Australian garage/rock'n'roll enthusiast as well as those already familiar with the band.
