-"Goofyfooter" is a creative musical outlet for anti-rockstars - check your ego in at the door please!+Who or what the @#$% is “Goofyfooter”?
-Born from the wreckage of the "usual band politics", wasted years and futile persistence with dog-lazy individuals, the project sprung into life in late 2009 to salvage some tunes before they disappeared forever into the ether and continues to progress as a no-frills, purely instrumental existence, all the while adopting the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid!).+ 
-So... you won't find any virtuoso performances or fretboard gymnastics here but, hopefully, something that makes you tap your foot, bang your head or just chill out.+Odds are that nobody has ever heard of us!
 +We are new, but at the same time quite old! This bunch of “anti-rockstars” has been kicking around this planet for many years in other forms... and now we are Goofyfooter.
 + 
 +We are from bands that never made the big-time, playing to half-empty rooms at dingy corner pubs in Melbourne and Adelaide.
 +But that's not important... what is important is that we play music that feels good to us - and hopefully to you too. Music that comes from a place within, not manufactured for a quick sale. This is our brand of Oz “surf” music… bucket-loads of reverb and tremolo, big acoustic guitars and the occasional splash of Hammond organ.

 +Inspired by the Australian coastline, the outback, long drives, our rockin' pubs (what's left of 'em!) and many Surf/Instrumental performances over the ages, we write whatever the mood invokes, without a thought of genre or pigeon-hole or trend. Sometimes it's brooding and reflective... sometimes it's upbeat and fun... and sometimes it's just downright loud and dirty!

Current Version (version 3, 12 May 2012, 12:07)

Inspired by the coastline, the outback, long drives, our rockin' pubs and many Surf/Instrumental performances over the ages, Goofyfooter write and play about Australian places and themes. This ain't no stretch-Hummer-dark-window-leather-seat-ridin-in-the-back-bag-of-snow type of rock music. It's white-knuckle-EH-Holden-station-wagon-dusty-road-one-arm-on-the-window-sill-one-arm-swatting-flies! Definitely not your traditional surf music - it's a crossover, a fusion, an "Aussie mongrel breed"... shitloads of reverb and tremolo, big acoustic guitars and the occasional splash of cheesy organ. Sometimes it's brooding and reflective, sometimes it's upbeat and fun... and sometimes it's just downright loud and dirty! Music that comes from a place within, not manufactured for a quick sale. It makes for an eclectic mix, guaranteed to transport you to a place you once knew... that deserted beach at sunrise, that night around an open fire, that Kombi trek along a corrugated gravel road.
