Fuse is very excited to announce a 30th anniversary reissue of Palimpsest, the one and only album by Melbourne postpunk icons Essendon Airport. Recorded in December 1981, Palimpsest is now reborn as a double disc package with a whole bonus CD of live and unreleased studio recordings spanning 1980-83. Formed in 1978 as a minimalist duo of guitarist Robert Goodge and keyboardist David Chesworth, Essendon Airport released their landmark 7” EP Sonic Investigations Of the Trivial on Chesworth’s Innocent Records in 1979. Chapter Music reissued Sonic Investigations way back in 2002 (CH43). The bonus Live + More disc collates 18 recordings, from the duo period to the impressively muscular, previously This is totally classic Australian postpunk, a must for anyone interested in the eccentric end of Australian independent music in the 1980s, and comes packaged with a colour printed plastic cover, faithfully replicating the silkscreened look of the original LP cover and plastic sleeve.
