Post 14 - Uncanny X-Men - Salive One Mini LP

Uncanny X-Men were formed in 1980/81, first as a four-piece band featuring Brian Mannix, Ron Thiessen, Nick Matandos and Michael Helms. Chuck Hargreaves later joined. The band quickly became a popular live act around Melbourne’s pubs, forming a loyal following. Their first Mini LP “Salive One” (L20022) was recorded November 2 1982, and two days after they landed a contract with Michael Gudinski's Mushroom Records. The single from the Mini LP “Pakistan” reached number 11 in the Melbourne charts and number 39 nationally. Here for your download pleasure is the Mini LP “Salive One”.

Got this the day it was released in Melbourne- I remember I was a little disappointed in the song choice but pleased nonetheless the boys had a record deal. Thanks for the rip.

Nice one - thanks for posting. I heard about the Uncanny X-Men from an expatriate Aussie friend of mine here in Dublin and checked them out on YouTube - I was most impressed.

Good luck with the blog - it's absolutely excellent.
