    The Rockmelons are one of Australia's most pioneering pop acts. Through three flawless albums 'Tales Of The City,' Form One Planet' and 'Rockies 3,' they've proven influential to acts as diverse as Cut Copy, The Presets, Sneaky Sound System and many more.

    Pushing the boundaries of early dance in Sydney in the mid eighties – they happened upon fertile ground, developing a loyal live fanbase and a stream of critically adored and commercially successful singles, that to this day, hint at popular music trends that were to come.

    'Serious Fun – Tales Of The Rockmelons' compiles the Rockies three albums; 'Tales Of The City,' 'Form One Planet' and 'Rockies 3' into one package – alongside a selection of independent singles, rarities and remixes – some never before available on CD.

    The package contains extensive liner notes from esteemed journalist Toby Creswell and the booklet boasts a selection of the distinctive poster art from the classic era of the Rockies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential collection For fans of Australian music and the great band, this 4cd collection is a must. Whilst the first two albums suffer from no remastering, it's all about the 4th disc with so many rarities previously released on vinyl, and the great booklet with tour posters and great liner notes. Support vintage Australian music!
