  • salute to this song!

  • The Uk used to largely shit on australian bands unless they where resident and serious like go-betweens, birthday party, the saints maybe....maw far bigger in...everywhere else
  • Charts? Who gives a flyin burrito! One of the best bands that ever came out of Aussieland. Shame they couldn't stay together. But left behind some solid tunes.
  • did this come out the year after down under,remember buying this on a 45,good tune but dont think it did too well and possibly last appearence in uk charts.
  • Genius!
  • I miss these songs
