Enjoyed reading about Morrissey saying "there are some bad people on the right". Fast forward 30 years he (arguably) is one of them!!!
I was almost going to comment that many think Moz is of the right these days; but thought I'd try to keep it more focused on the chart stats.
Agreed! Amazing to see these chart flops, can't wait to see if any of my favorites pop up over the years

Another good week with JAMC, PWEI and Michelle Shocked. You're right PWEI-zation was the one promoted as the single.
^ Thanks for the info, OBOne! I have no recollection of hearing that PWEI song before, though I only really knew 'Wise Up! Sucker' by them at the time.
I find the chart history of PWEI to be rather odd. They had fair success in the UK but only one single that i know of made the top 100 (X,Y and Zee Number #89 in 1991) and yet everything else fell below the top 100. Aussie chart pickers must have liked that one enough to boost it's success i suppose. Thank you very very much for the blog this year. It's nice to have this info out there preserved for posterity as it were. Look forward to 1990.
Thanks Jesse'77! I'm glad some people enjoy reading the blog, as I know it has a somewhat niche audience.

Yeah, I always find it strange when songs I know from then don't chart at all, while plenty of others I've never heard of before do.
I've posted a list of all singles debuting in 1989 that peaked within the 101-150 region of the chart here:

This week in 1990 - the first ARIA chart of the 1990s... with new top 150 entries from James Reyne, The Shivers, Gene Pitney, and Katrina and The Waves.

This week in 1990 - new entries from The Georgia Satellites, Underworld, Quincy Jones featuring Ray Charles and Chaka Khan, Malcolm McLaren and the Bootzilla Orchestra, and Paul Simpson featuring Adeva.

This week in 1990: new entries from Joe Cocker, Chris Rea, Warrant, Poco, and Natalie Cole.

This week in 1990: new entries from Tracy Chapman, Wildland, Cliff Richard, Lisa Stansfield, and J.J. Cale.

This week in 1990: new entries from Fine Young Cannibals, Texas, David Byrne, After 7, Transvision Vamp, Boxcar, Sybil, Blow featuring Roy Hamilton, Club Veg, Tanita Tikaram, and Jimi the Human & Spectre 7. In fact, this week has the highest number of top 150-peaking debuts for 1990.

I had no idea Boxcar were australian, but what i wanted to comment on was your mentioning that australia wasn't ready for electronic music made by local artists and i think you have a very valid point. It would take some time and my thinking is if Beatfish didn't have two fairly recognisable faces from two well known australian bands as part of it's line up 'Wheels Of Love' might not have been such a big hit. When you look at 'Dead Eyes Opened'in 1994 the success of that single i would attribute to the wave of techno that was becoming popular in 1994 and especially in 1995. Even bands like Infusion in the 2000s weren't that successful. I guess aussies like their rock and plenty of it.
'Wheels of Love' was a fairly middling hit, really, peaking at #26. 'Dead Eyes Opened' seemed to gain exposure/popularity via the Triple J Hottest 100. If I remember correctly, it was used in a Triple J ad on the ABC, possibly promoting the hottest 100 voting, towards the end of '94/very early '95. But, oddly, Severed Heads' follow-up, 'Heart of the Party', which sounds relatively commercial (minus the darker-themed lyrics) - and was produced by Boxcar - tanked at #115.

What's great about what you do is for someone like myself who thrives on statistics you provide that with your weekly blog especially now since you include how many weeks the song stayed in the top 150, where it peaked, the week that it peaked and so on. It must be very interesting information from the point of view of a music lover to be able to look at the info you have for reference from time to time. I've only ever seen a top 150 albums chart and a top 100 albums chart from 2 weeks in september 1989 and was amazed by the information that was there. I rarely comment on your blog,but always look forward to fridays and read it every week. You do chart lovers a great service
^ Thank you! I didn't know when I started this blog how well it would be received/whether it would have an audience, as it's fairly niche interest, so it's nice to see that some people appreciate it. It's only today, actually, that I've added the peak date info, after a request from an anonymous user; but I have only added it for the 1990 posts so far. It will take time to go back and do the 1989 posts.

I wish that similar info beyond #100 was accessible for the UK charts, pre-November 1994 on the Chart Log UK site, as it definitely exists as far back as at least 1983.
This week in 1990: new entries from V. Spy V. Spy, Mantronix featuring Wondress, The Beach Boys, The Smithereens, Eddie Money, The Beatmasters featuring Claudia Fontaine, Camper Van Beethoven, Eddie Murphy, W.A.S.P., Babyface, Terence Trent D'Arby, and Basia.

Did it take you particularly long to put together that 1991 preview on your blog, i'm wondering. So much obscurity that even i can't name all those clips

loving this, do we have to wait 5 years for 1997 info?
Thanks for reading NationOfZealots. I have the top 150 charts for 1997. While I'd probably not rather give away too many 'spoilers' in this public thread, I don't mind giving you a couple of peaks from then if you're after them (or you could send me a Memo).

But yes, unfortunately, I won't be writing about 1997 until 2028. Was it the KLF peak from 1997 you were after?

Meanwhile... this week in 1991: new entries from Nomad, Moodswings featuring Chrissie Hynde, Enigma, Skid Row, Michael W. Smith, and Corina.

As an FYI, Helvelln won the National Australian University band comp in 1991 and the prize was a recording session to release a single which I believe Cruellest Plague was the result of.
