To coincide with The Stem's 30th anniversary tour celebrating the release of their 1987 debut album At First Sight Violets are Blue, Citadel Records are set to reissue the long deleted title as a limited digipak 'anniversary edition' CD. The album has been digitally re-mastered and includes 3 bonus tracks. The vinyl is limited to 500
Originally released through Mushroom Records' White Label, the album was first pressed in mid-1987. The title track At First Sight and subsequent singles For Always and Sad Girl gained mainstream airplay. They are one of only a handful of Australian bands to crack the mainstream charts with an indie approach in the late 80's, influencing a host of new local bands to emulate their brand of garage rock and roll.
At First Sight became the band's signature track and the album is still rated as one of the best Australian guitar pop releases. In 1993 Rolling Stone Magazine included it in the top 100 Australian releases to date. The album attained gold record status in 2007.
Seminal Australian 60s influenced 80s pop…all of em antipodean Nuggets!
