Together in concert…
Performing new songs & classic favourites

MENTAL AS ANYTHING announce a proud new chapter in their career – with new singles
‘Shake Off Your Sandals’ & “Goat tracks in the Sand”.
Having blessed our stages, radio airwaves, record books, playlists, TV screens and award nights for close to 40 years – Mental As Anything are today proud to announce a new chapter in their story.
Boasting 12 albums between 1979 and 2009, Mental As Anything can proudly call themselves art pop pioneers – blending left-of-centre lyricism, blue-eyed soul and rock into a distinctively Australian context, providing chart success and mainstream appeal. Their contribution to the Australian music landscape was formally recognised in 2009 with their induction into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.
DAVE WARNER’S from the Suburbs
In the late 70s we had many sensational gigs with the Mentals so I’m looking forward to this. We will be playing songs from the new album and Warner classics too.
It is almost forty years ago to the day as I type this that Dave Warner’s from the Suburbs appeared in public for the first time with a lunchtime show at the Uni WA Tavern, a warm up gig for the Suburbs’ first major performance at the Octagon Theatre in October 1976.
By then I had already recorded the demo of Suburban Boy in London with Tony Durant. Tony was to join the band in early 1978. It is absolutely wonderful to be back recording new CD “When”with Tony and original Suburb John Dennison for the first time in more than thirty-five years. Joining us for this recording are Martin Cilia, Greg Macainsh, Lloyd Gyi and Nicole Warner who have been playing live as “Suburbs” with me for around twenty-five years, so this is truly a band album although we have augmented the core band with a bunch of wonderful musicians, old and new friends: Bill Beare and Dick Haynes who shared a Perth pub-rock heritage have been integral. Kevin Borich is a long-time friend and it’s so terrific to have him play on a Suburbs album. Likewise Greedy Smith, Mick Thomas and Wally who share a past of sleazy pub carpets and gaffer tape. James Gillard, Jim Moginie and Dave Briggs are newer mates who have helped make this album a natural descendant of my most successful – Mugs Game
