Del Musical Del Mismo Nombre

For the band’s debut album, Snarski utilised the services of Amanda Pearson (vocals, percussion), Barry Turnbull (bass) and Mark Dawson (drums). The album, was released in August 1989 on the Waterfront label (available only on vinyl) to critical acclaim, although it was re-released on CD in 1993. The main influence on the album was songwriter Snarski’s trip to Spain, thus the title which when translated means “From the Musical of the Same Name”. The band recorded the album in four days on a budget of $1000. The lush romanticism of the songs had critics searching for superlatives.  To promote the record they toured nationally twice, playing successful shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Rather than capitalise on such acclaim however, Snarski chose to take a break, spending two years travelling in Spain and the USA.

Difficult to follow the excellent Chad’s Tree but Snarski delivers a classic album.
