Lobby Loyde’s band, the Coloured Balls, were a scarily loud (and disconcertingly skinhead-styled) band built around Loyde’s incendiary guitar. This is spit and sawdusts 70s rock from the Aussie suburbs and what it lacks in subtlty it more than makes up for in attitude. Fans of Rose Tattoo would love this and will find the 2019 re-issue much more financially accessible than an original.
