Before going any further, I owe a big belated thanks to the person who responded to my previous Odolites post, who informed of an album I had no idea existed - this one! That much appreciated info prompted me to track down this album, and wouldn't ya know, I was actually able to locate it in a short amount of time (although it isn't likely that there are too many copies of these floating around, as was the case with everything else they committed to vinyl.

A theodolite /θiːˈɒdəlaɪt/ is a precision optical instrument for measuring angles between designated visible points in the horizontal and vertical planes. The traditional use has been for land surveying, but they are also used extensively for building and infrastructure construction, and some specialized applications such as meteorology and rocket launching.
The Odolites were a 4 piece guitar band who formed in the mid 80's in the North of Tasmania (Australia). At the time, groups in Tasmania playing original music were few and far between, especially those who championed bright, guitar pop. The Odolites wrote and recorded around 10 tunes, 5 of which became the EP, Persistence of Memory(Rampant Records). The band relocated to Melbourne, and became part of a vibrant, ever growing independent scene. They released another single, Kathleen's Tantrum followed by a full-length album, Face Down in the Violets (Rampant Records). They disbanded in 1988. Members joined 3 other bands of note - Tender Engines, The Somerfields and The Fish John West Reject.
