Volume 2 of the Lobsterman Archives, an initiative by China Pig Records to shine light on this most singular of artists with a career spanning 30 years and over 100 self-releases, has arrived. Eddy & The Bludgers v Beacon Hill Disco compiles a side each of tracks from just two undeniably strong albums. The songs were written between 1987-1991 (the Archive series is chronological with respect to date of composition, due to Lobster logic) but recorded at the turn of the century. This volume finds our hero in a period of transition. Mexicans Trapped In Rubble were playing shows with the likes of Craven Fops and Tactics, and Crow singer Peter Fenton would do their sound on occasion, but they were starting to disintegrate. As historian Quinlan Boyne writes, "1987 and 1988 were known as the 'Weena Years', due to the bizarre decision by Lobster to don the blue and white 'butcher's apron' and play some fullback and wing for the struggling Narraweena Hawks'. Before long, Crocx was MIA, possibly working as a bricky's labourer, drinking longnecks in Lake MunmorahÓ"
