Sonic Investigations Of The Trivial
The band Essendon Airport began in Melbourne, 1978, as a duo of David Chesworth (keyboards and electronics), and Robert Goodge (guitar). They released an incredible 7" EP in 1979 called Sonic Investigations Of The Trivial, on Innocent Records, a label run by David Chesworth with Tch Tch Tch's Philip Brophy. A track from this EP was included on Chapter's Can't Stop It! - Australian Post-Punk 1978-82 compilation CD. In 1980 they released a 7" single accompanied by a singer named Anne Cessna. They also had a track included on the Innocent compilation New Music 1978-79. Essendon Airport later gained extra members and released the Palimpsest LP in 1981. They broke up in 1983. Chapter Music has gathered together Essendon Airport's duo recordings onto one CD, along with the Anne Cessna tracks, and five previously unheard live recordings. Sonic Investigations Of The Trivial is a fantastic document of a band years ahead of their time. The reissue features liner notes written by Ralph Traviato of Tch Tch Tch, as well as reproductions of original posters, record sleeves, press clippings and even chewing gum cards given out at their shows.
