For the last decade and a half, Bloodloss has existed spasmodically in Seattle with a line-up that grew to include Mudhoney's Mark Arm and Guy Madison. During this period, they released two albums on Reprise and Sympathy For The Record Industry and a number of 7"s and EPs. Formed in Sydney in 1983 by Adelaide ex-pats, Renestair EJ and Martin Bland, Bloodloss existed fitfully Downunder until 1991 when both Ren and Martin emigrated to the USA as members of Stu Spasm's Lubricated Goat. This retrospective is culled from recordings made in Australia between 1983 and 1991 when the band existed alongside better-known contemporaries like the Beasts Of Bourbon, feedtime, Scientists and King Snake Roost. Disc one features the entire, superb The Truth Is Marching In album (1990), along with the best tracks from their final, (and never released) Australian recorded album, The Hair Of The Future, from 1991. Disc two collects the best songs from their self-titled cassette-only album (1986), Human Skin Suit LP (1987), and unheard rehearsal tapes and recording sessions. Includes a 16-page booklet with extensive liner notes by Harry Butler (DNA fanzine). All Music Guide describes Bloodloss' music as "Blues/Vegas/Punk craziness" and over 27 sporadic years, the band's chaotic and pulsating jazz-influenced punk rock has won them many fans. This collection shows where it all began for a band that was always more than just a Mudhoney side project.
