The Bo Weevils - That Girl/I Want Youl (1986) 7" Vinyl-rip

The Bo-Weevils (1985-97) were a Melbourne, Australia based psychedelic rock band blending psychedelic music, pop music, garage rock and rock music. Their early garage incarnation was a lot easier to classify and won fans easily, but the band evolved away from these roots from the late 80's into more cerebral and accomplished directions.

They had a dedicated cult following in Australia and Europe during the late 1980s to mid 1990s, and performed many impassioned local shows as well as tours to Sydney, Adelaide and Wellington. Elements of their sound are similar to aspects of successful contemporary Australian bands of the time, such as Died Pretty, Hoodoo Gurus, The Stems and The Church as well as American groups Green on Red and The Dream Syndicate.

Bass player Neil Rogers has been described as a 'doyen' of Australian Music by Music Journalist Patrick White of The Age, for his 20 years as a DJ on Melbourne Radio Station 3RRR. Rogers continues to host the Aus Mood show on a Thursday evening playing exclusively Australian acts.(From Wikipedia)
