The Apartments
« on: November 04, 2005, 12:54:33 AM »
The Inner city sound compilation, mentioned elsewhere on this forum, contains the brilliant "All you wanted" by the Apartments.

I think they made 4 regular albums (the evening visits, Drift, A life full of farewells and Apart) and some ltd. albums with acoustic versions of songs.

All you wanted is not on the regular albums (but available on CD as a track on the "Life" single).

For unknown reasons (to me) they were quite popular in France. I also remember a review in Belgian magazine Humo of the All you wanted EP.

Worth checking out if you don't know them already.

The Apartments are back ( unbelievable )..playing in Melbourne soon:

 NORTHCOTE SOCIAL CLUB in MELBOURNE
 
 THE APARTMENTS (NSW) with Dave Graney and Clare Moore featuring The Lurid Yellow Mist
 
Fri 29 Jun   (Doors 8.30)   Tickets: $16+bf on sale Mon 21 May   ($20 at the door if still available)

What some people know about The Apartments could fit on a cigarette paper. Others, could write books. If something about the name rings a bell, it’s because songs by The Apartments’ Peter Milton Walsh have been covered by many a famous artist. The band first got together in Brisbane, 1978, breaking up in 1979, and returning to the music scene in 1993. The 2007 incarnation of The Apartments features players from the past four albums – John Willsteed (ex-Go Betweens) on bass, Eliot Fish (Todd Sparrow) on guitar, and Gene Maynard on drums.
