Sydney, Australia (1980 – 1983)

Sardine v (or just Sardine) was an Australian post-punk band, formed by Stephanie and Ian Rilen in Sydney in 1980. They broke up in 1983 and Ian went back to playing with X.

The band formed after Ian bought a keyboard for his children. “I didn’t know she played until I bought a keyboard for the kids and I was writing songs in my room at the house. She just walked by and played a line on the keyboards. I said: ‘Do that again’.”

Although hard-working and popular live (playing to crowds of 800-1000), the band’s recordings were never up to suitable quality and they failed to make it big. Their influence was still felt. Hunters & Collectors covered Stuck On You on their 1986 album Human Frailty and added it to their set, and both tracks from the single featured on compilation albums. The Deadly Hume covered I hate you on the Phantom Records tenth anniversary compilation Assorted Desecrations And Magnificent Mutations(1988).
