This tune was from Ooga Boogas classic LP from 2013 Ooga Boogas. Guitarist Mikey Young is in the above Total Control rock group as well as Eddy Current Suppression Ring. Leon Stackpole singer, guitarist and keyboard man is an enigmatic dude walking the earth.
Now this is a Melbourne (& Geelong?) smash from 1987. I think the members of God were all teens at the time of this recording. They did an LP too but nothing can compare to the teenage kicks of My Pal. I cannot believe how fucking good this song is to this day! Members went on to be in bands Hoss, Powder Monkeys, Tendrils, Philistines, Bored and more. My Pal would always be the best thing they would ever be involved with despite how talented they were/are or aren't. Two of the members of God have now passed away both of heroin overdoses in the early 2000s. The Melbourne rock scene loved their heroin, hello The Birthday Party. RIP Tim Hemensley & Sean Greenway.
I love this title tune from Dave's awesome solo cd Knock Yourself Out from 2009. The video kind of fades out though when there's still like 2 minutes of the track left. You gotta see the film clip though coz it's so Melbourne hipster it's hilarious. Then there's Mr Graney the one and only charismatic star who, as the rap kids say now, is in his own lane. I might post the full version later because it's such a great song.
Phew that's it for Australia Day now. Did I post any Church? I've been listening to them all day anyway........ so....oh well next time.
Oh...I think this is the full version dunno 'bout the video
