The Particles formed at the height of the punk movement in Sydney,†Australia in 1977, and spent their early years hanging out with punk†legends The Saints. But by their first recordings in 1979 they were†something else entirely†Ė pioneers of infectiously melodic, playfully†subversive indie pop. They deserve to be held up alongside†contemporaries such as Orange Juice or Television Personalities,†and†1980s Bubblegum makes a strong case for this with the first†overview of their sporadic recording career.
