Recommended Posts

I remember years ago a friend of mine used to play the Hell out of a band called Axatak (I think that is the correct spelling) back in the mid to late 80's. Does anyone know anything about this band at all...? Was anything every released on CD...? Or did any band members go on to other bands..?

 

I think at least one of our knowledgeble Aussie members might know something.

They are Australia's answer to KISS..I saw a link for their ep...I'll try and post it...

 

Glam rockers Axatak from Melbourne, formerly the 'KISS Klones', one of the first Aussie KISS tribute bands in the early 80s. The musical influence is obvious in their sound.

Axatak release one demo tape and one ep, nothing on cd.

Andy, bass player and vocalist, passed away bit over 10 years ago. Sadly missed by those remember him.

Most other members don't play in other bands anymore. Yuri, lead gutiarist in 1st line up, played in Safire for very short time but didn't recorded anything them.

You might come across classic old live footage on Youtube.

:banger:

To be honest, I haven't ever heard their music but have known of the band for a long time. Here is link to a out of print Australian music blog. If you scroll down to the entries made on April 1st, you can download their 5 track EP. Also worth checking this blog out for other cool aussie hard rock/AOR stuff. Much of what is found on this blog is old and long out of print and hard to find. Recently there has been some stuff by Blackjack posted on there as well.

Thanks for the info... Sad to hear of the passing of Andy. I remember the first time my friend slapped that tape in my care player... I thought it was God awful. A month or so later I would make sure he had it with him when we went out on the weekends. We would always try to out do each other coming up with obscure bands.... I always gave him credit for Axatak. That one really grew on me.

There was a cd released.. althouhg I'm guessing a bootleg as it was one of those 2-on-1 releases.

I've seen it on ebay quite a few times, always being sold out of germany... so I'm guess that's where the boot came from.

 

 

Here we go, there's one up on ebay now....

    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
