THE LAST WORDS - Animal World (7" vinyl-rip)


The Last Words, one of Australia’s more obscure exports, less well known than The Saints, but just as important in the ‘Punk Jigsaw’, especially by using Adrian ‘dub’ Sherwood to produce their self titled debut album, released at the arse end of 1980. His influence can be heard most in its final track; a truly fucked up version of White Rabbit that puts the post into punk. But hey we’re not here to talk about that, this post concerns their debut single Animal World b/w No Music, which was originally released in their native land in 1977. Later re-issued in 1979 by Rough Trade, it’s a buzz saw slice of punk rock with a hefty tune. Apparently it’s a bit of a collectors item, dunno about my copy though, cos the picture sleeve went awol, not that it’d be up for sale. Hear it here.
