The Stems came roaring out of Perth in the mid Eighties with a sound and
style that definitively captured the spirit and enthusiasm of sixties
garage music - lurching fuzz-tone guitars, brooding organ and solid gold
garage-punk! Though at the core of it all, The Stems wrote some awesome
songs, made great records and put on exciting live shows. Tracks like
'Make You Mine', 'Love Will Grow' and 'Tears Me In Two' mark them out as
one of the truly great Australian acts of the Eighties.
Mushroom Soup - The Citadel Years has been remastered and repackaged and
brings together the band's break-through Citadel singles, their debut EP
'Love Will Grow' and a selection of 'early years' demos and outtakes.
This collection really captures a great band at the peak of its powers.
