Indo got me thinking the other day about this after mentioning he was into rap and hip hop as a young fella.
- what was the first song you liked?

- what bands were you into up to the age of 18.

- did your parents hate it? What did they listen to?

- when you started going out did your musical tastes change?

- what do you listen to now? Changed tastes? Still a diehard? Do you revisit your teen years?

Both tours should be fun eh? It’s been 30 odd years since I saw Mudhoney play, they were pretty wild back in the day.

I don’t know who put up a song by these guys a year or so ago but it got me. I reckon they’re great. I’m disappointed to hear they released this in Brisbane in December. Wish I had of been there.
Bit of Queensland history too if you care to Google

Went to the Brisbane gig to see the Roadtrippers & stayed for Boing Boing.

Epic live show & started listening to the album. Very underrated.

The leadsinger of Boing Boing played drums in The Roadtrippers (his old man is the lead singer - Gav Dear).

I’ve been a massive Roadtrippers fan for years & they were awesome.

I posted 'Go The Mongrel' a while ago. A mate supported them a few times though I've never seen them live.

If you get a wriggle on, some of youse can still catch these dudes live.

Chomp a cookie with your cuppa of shroom-infused Horlicks, lay back and enjoy the ride, man.

I’ll check the Roadtrippers out.
Gunna get the cheese and kisses to follow Boing Boing on Insta so I can get notified of any upcoming gigs. Thanks for putting up Go The Mongrel Stu. My YouTube seshs over a few beers invariably end up with Boing Boing

Blackers. Hi mate. In 2010, family and i were at a bit of a hippy type festival south of Cooktown, The Roadtrippers were one of the bands to furnish the stage. Later on i spoke to the lead singer, nice guy. He told me they often go under another name,the pseudonym, The Toadrippers, as they loved flattening cane toads (Bufo marinus) on their journeys to hundreds of different regional towns where they performed. Good stuff. AW.

They sound like fun Alfred. Glad you got to enjoy them, they can clearly play up a storm.

That would be the Black Mountain Festival is that right?
I’d like to go to it. Looking at his old man sing and lyrics of the Roadtrippers I can see where the Boing Boing singer gets his sense of humour from.

Seeds. How’s things ? Correct, that was it, heaps of people over a few days, no aggro, loads of kids, great food and weather. Highlight was when we left late in the evening, we fortunately stopped the car as a massive python some 6-7m in length and with a 150mm dia.girth slowly crossed the dirt track, it had a head the size of a bulldog, very slow moving, was blown away by its enormity. Ended up staying there for near an hour so as to stop any departing cars from crushing it. My then 9 year old was gobsmacked. AW.

Great story about the python. Those scrub pythons get big. Sounds like a monster at that size.
