FUN THINGS - Lipstick 7'' 1985

Two songs by the Fun Things from Brisbane which appeared on their highly acclaimed four track EP ("500 copies were pressed and is one of the most collectable artifacts from Australia's Punkrock era") in 1980, have been re-released by Sonics Records on this 7Inch. The Fun Things were a high school band and formed late Seventies during the heyday period of Punk by Brad (vocals/guitar/piano), Graeme (guitars), John (bass), Murray (drums). The four were a primary group behind Brisbane's second wave punk scene between 1978 and 1980. According to music historian, Ian McFarlane, Brisbane produced "some of the most anarchistic bands of the Australian punk rock era" and that it was a city nationally renowned for its ultra conservatism. After the Fun Things dissolved both Shepherd brothers eventually went on to subsequent bands. Popular guests on numerous essential compilations. Enjoy!
