Post 647 - Captain Australia And His Mate Downunder - Skylab Fragment - You Got Soul

Captain Australia And His Mate Downunder ,  that’s a mouth full and that’s about all I know of this band. From what I can find out I’m pretty sure they were a Western Australian band from the references to Perth and W.A as well as being recorded at Sweetcorn, Perth. It was engineered by Keith Cramond and released on WEA Records in 1979.   Lynton, Galley penned “Skylab Fragment” b/w “You Got Soul” (100 106) and maybe they were members of the band?  One interesting thing I did find out that it was released in the U.S. on Big Tree Records in the same year. Skylab was the United States' first space station, orbiting Earth from 1973 to 1979, when it fell back to Earth and caused a huge worldwide media attention. FLAC
