The Relatives


Simon Kain from the Relatives (who came out of Melbourne in 1979) emailed me these when he contributed a record cover to prehistoricsounds.com.
It includes a couple of fliers for two shows they did in 1979 and a shot of the band.
I picked up a copy of their Uncle Theo ep many years ago and it had constant rotation on my turntable back in the day.
