Andrew and I had seen many local assiduous Geelong bands yet something was dreadfully missing.
A wild idea was hatched: why not put a provocative “nonchalant” band together that never rehearses, changes it’s name with every gig, has a flexible line up and invites many local musicians to join in from gig to gig to polarise local conventions.
The band featured streaks of comedy and cartoonish theatrics along the way ridiculing the negativity of lofty local “arm chair music critics.”
