Best of Mental As Anything

Mental As Anything, another Australian new wave rock band, formed at an art school in Sydney way back in 1976.  This artistic background gave the band a leg up when it came to crafting their music videos and satirical, self-deprecating lyrics.  Known as the "Mentals" by fans, Mental as Anything was a good-time band that certainly took themselves less than serious.  The name of the band was a saying in late 70's Australian vernacular that essentially meant "having outlandish fun".

After making a name for themselves on the Syndey club scene, Mental as Anything landed a record deal and produced their debut EP, Mental as Anything Plays at Your Party in 1978.  In 1979, the band released the album Get Wet, which featured the song "The Nips Are Getting Bigger", which became a hit in Australia.  Mental As Anything had a number of hits throughout the 80's, most of which stayed on the Australian charts, but a few of which landed elsewhere.  Some of their more popular songs included "Come Around", "If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?", "Too Many Times", "Spirit Got Lost", "Working for the Man", "Your'e So Strong", "Live It Up", "Let's Go to Paradise", "He's Just No Good for You", "Rock and Roll Music", and "The World Seems Difficult".

Post 80's, Mental As Antyhing continue to play shows from time to time and release new material.  The band was known to have been active as late as 2011, although not all original members were present.  The Mental as Anything Discography is as follows:

    SPIRIT GOT LOST:
     [chorus]
    We dance around the gravestones, and we drag the chains around, we clatter 'n clank 'n we chatter 'n skank. . . there'll always be a chair for you in the corner of my heart, a table for two for me and you for as long as we're apart [etc]
