Crossing Of The Miles
Release Date: 13/03/2010
Catalogue No.: MEMO7
Record Label: Memorandum / Fuse
Format: CD

First time on CD for the long-awaited recordings
of Chad’s Tree, the band that introduced the
singer-songwriting brothers, Mark and Rob
Snarski to the Australian public.
The brothers are best known for their post-
Chad’s Tree careers in The Jackson Code
and the ARIA-nominated Blackeyed Susans
respectively. They also both sing with the
remaining Triffids, when that band stages their
tribute to the songs of Dave McComb in the
Secret In The Shape of a Song concerts.
Emerging from Perth in the early 1980s and
relocating to Sydney mid-decade, Chad’s Tree
were championed by fellow West Australians,
The Triffids - a band they more than shared
stylistic and thematic similarities with. Chad’s
Tree’s brittle, off-kilter sound evoked the
sense of distance, desolation, harshness and
loneliness of the Australian landscape.
Crossing Off The Miles features both the Buckle
In The Rail (1988) and Kerosene (1989) albums,
every single and B-side and 11 unheard early
demos and live recordings. All audio has been
remastered from the original master tapes.
Crossing Off The Miles is housed in a smart
gatefold wallet with a 32 page booklet stuffed
with rare photos and exclusive liners notes from
eight contributors including both Rob and Mark
Snarski, authors Niall Lucy and David Nichols.
Released just in time for the annual Snarski vs
Snarski shows, this is an essential purchase for
the Australian indie enthusiast, the many who
have tracked the brothers’ careers so far,
or simply for those who were there...
