Always thought Verbeek was hard done by. Got us into our world cup but everyone turned on him when he quite right dissed the A-League

RIP Stuart Fraser - guitarist from Noiseworks. Spent many a night in a pub around Melbourne, beer in hand, enjoying their (and his) music. In My Youth...

Mentals and Hoodoo Gurus. Think I saw them live more than any other bands in the 80s. RIP Greedy.

Bloody hell. RIP Greedy. 63 is way too young. Might listen to The World Seems Difficult again after so many years.

Damn. Saw them in the 80s when I was still in high school. My favourite Mentals song, lesser known but still a goodie.


Ps it's about AbbA

I saw the Mentals about 2 years ago at The Sooki lounge in Belgrave. Let’s just say it was a disappointing night.
