For the first time on CD, these are the long-awaited recordings of Chad's Tree, the band that introduced the singer-songwriting brothers, Mark and Rob Snarski to the Australian public. The brothers are best known for their post-Chad's Tree careers in The Jackson Code and the ARIA-nominated Blackeyed Susans, respectively. They also both sing with the remaining Triffids, when that band stages their tribute to the songs of Dave McComb in the Secret In The Shape Of A Song concerts. Emerging from Perth in the early 1980s and relocating to Sydney mid-decade, Chad's Tree were championed by fellow West Australians, The Triffids -- a band they more than shared stylistic and thematic similarities with. Chad's Tree's brittle, off-kilter sound evoked the sense of distance, desolation, harshness and loneliness of the Australian landscape. Crossing Off The Miles features both the Buckle In The Rail (1988) and Kerosene (1989) albums, every single and B-side and 11 unheard early demos and live recordings. All audio has been remastered from the original master tapes. Crossing Off The Miles is housed in a smart gatefold wallet with a 32-page booklet stuffed with rare photos and exclusive liner notes from eight contributors, including both Rob and Mark Snarski, authors Niall Lucy and David Nichols.
