RIP Andy McQueen (Exploding White Mice). Didn't know him personally, but saw him play many times over the years, really enjoyed what he did. Hands down the most rock 'n roll guy I ever saw in Adelaide too.

I saw them a few times and they always ripped it up. Very sad.

A small thing but I always loved the photo on the back of Nest Of Vipers where they're standing on a limestone headland sporting long hair, leather jackets and stove pipe jeans, like an Antipodean Ramones, except with surfers in the background. Coulda taken the shot at a pub anywhere, or a suburban park, side of a highway perhaps, yet it was taken on the coast, the Mid Coast I presume, and it linked the only two things I cared about in 1987.

Yes The Mice played loud and hard in the 80's saw them at the old Tivoli a few times , big nights, that album shot was taken at Gulls Rock, some of them must of liked surfing as they seem a bit overdressed for that day LoL

Spencer Jones. A true legend of the local music scene from The Johnnies to The Beasts of Bourbon and on to many other projects.

This group of three.

'Wow, unexpected, he was running for Mayor too.'

'He was the least disabled candidate too. Sad.'

'There is no lie here.'
