The Avalanches – After The Goldrush

afterthegoldrush

In 2008, a mix CD appeared by The Avalanches titled “After the Goldrush”. The album is a mashup of 42 songs in different styles and from different eras. The inside cover includes a mini-history of the band and announces that this album “fills the gap for all of The Avalanches junkies out there, a mad mix of eclectic musical inspirations pieced together in a totally unique and off the wall way, it shouldn’t work, but it does in a bizarre way that only these antipodean mavericks know how… And remember, The Avalanches wouldn’t give a ‘Castlemaine Four-X’ for anything else.” There is a small picture of the band that sits behind the CD. There is no booklet and no credits for the songs or the band aside from the notes in the inside cover. Copies are scarce but can be found in rare record stores, several online outlets, and eBay.
