Phalanx is the first live album from Australian rock band Australian Crawl, originally released in December 1983 via EMI Records.

It was recorded live at concerts at Bombay Rock Gold Coast, Queensland and at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in October, 1983, during the 'Semantics' tour. The album reached #4 on the National Album Charts and was preceded by one single, Louie Louie.  

Phalanx was also released by Geffen Records in Europe but under a different title, Australian Crawl: Live, and with a different cover.  This Australian cover has Leunig cartoons front and back, the reverse showing a stage manager warning "Five Minutes Mr. Reyne" at the dressing room door. Meanwhile, James Reyne (lead vocals and on piano) is combing his hair backwards with Brylcream liberally applied, a guitar and a half-full bottle are nearby.

"Phalanx was the Crawl's fourth [overall] album... It yielded a rollicking single, in the form of the band's raucous cover of The Kingsmen's "Louie Louie"... As this album lodged itself at the top of the charts, the Crawl were off to England for some pre-Christmas shows with Duran Duran." – Glen A. Baker, 1983

Here are a couple of tracks from the album: Louie Louie, The Boys Light Up and Reckless.

This LP Record is a 2016 Remaster on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with replicated original artwork, pressed in Australia.
