Gutterville Splendour Six was established in Perth, Australia in the late-'90s and helped spawn later bands such as The Drones. The sound is clearly what The Drones came up with afterwards -- a brutal amalgam of electricity, distortion, feedback and desperation, drinking directly from the fountains of The Scientists and The Birthday Party. Guided by Gareth Liddiard's guitar, Gutterville Splendour Six produce slow, loud and nasty melodies, fronted by the complex and tortured lyrics which became the identifying stamp of The Drones. Among other band members, and besides Gareth Liddiard, we find other Drones members, such as Rui Pereira, as well as members of what years after came to be Kill Devil Hills. This album compiles the only EP they released back in the day plus all other recordings from this formative band. Finally available on this record is the missing link between The Scientists and The Drones. Released only on 2LP with a gatefold cover.
