Shows with our
idols The Breeders and Pavement. Music gets described as "'hula-hoop
snot pop"... hmm... ok. Among others, we cover a Jonathan Richmond
song - 'Little
insect' and a Breeders song - 'if
I was a painter'. We sell live tapes.
T-shirts, stickers, put up '000s posters - band guff.
Tom joins Ricaine
and the lovely and talented Stuart McFarlane comes on board as drummer.
Awesome shows and tours but
am losing interest... gone sailing.
Band winds up in '95. See 'band/crew'.
favourite shows were the Forest Festivals, Karnivals, winterstocks
and waterstocks. below

Trifle Tour (30 shows in 30 days). Hurdy Gurdy and Custard on stage
- Gold Coast. Our Andrew can't get off the floor... Danny (Custard) is just
about to launch himself off the stage and into hospital with 2 broken wrists.
Tom drums for Custard for a while. The rest of us had a nice lie down.
Britain Hotel. Victoria, Australia. A going away party which was packed... too
scary. 4th gig - Perth, W.A. Still Feb 91. 40C+ heat. Yallingup surf and heaps
of summery shows.
Heally leaves (sad) and Tom Jackman drums (hooray). Peter Ellis leaves and the
legendary Andrew Shakespeare plays guitar.
'93 Recorded Girl
Germs CD LP (shock). All done in own studio.
Took stupidly too long. Became a 3 piece and changed name to Slurper.
Over 100 shows are played each year... Most kinda wild and fun, lotsa cheers.
gun EP (polygram). 'Halo'
gets splattered all over radio and is on top of local charts.
Win 'best campus band' in Vic. A fun & way huge tour with Swordfish and
A month in the van... grrr
May 91 Hurdy Gurdy are off to Tasmania on the first of 9 tours there. We got
to NSW, SA and W.A. heaps but got obsessive about Tasmania. I suspect it was
to do with the abundance of very cheap op-shops.
