CROWD favourite Mental As Anything comes to Caloundra Powerboat Club on Thursday, October 6, in a proud new chapter in the boys' career.
Greedy Smith, Martin Plaza and the gang have recently released new singles Shake Off Your Sandals and Goat Tracks in My Sandpit under a new partnership with Universal Music.
Having graced our stages, radio airwaves, record books, playlists, TV screens and award nights for nearly 40 years - Mental As Anything is proving you can't keep a great Aussie band down.
With 12 albums between 1979 and 2009, Mental As Anything can call itself an art-pop pioneer - 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.
In total, Mental As Anything boasts a nigh-unparalleled 20 ARIA Top 40 singles in Australia, spanning The Nips Are Getting Bigger (No.16, 1979) to Mr Natural (No.27, 1995).
The Mentals success also translated internationally with Top 10 singles in Germany, UK, Norway and NZ.
Today Greedy and Plaza continue the Mentals' legacy with James Gillard (ex-Mondo Rock), Martin Cilla (The Atlantics) and drummer Jacob Cook fulfilling a comprehensive tour schedule most weekends of the calendar.
Doors open at 8pm for the Caloundra show and tickets are on sale from the Powerboat Club at Golden Beach for $30.
These can either be bought in person at the club or by calling 5492 1444.
