Brisbane rockers Custard emerged in 1990 and their 10 year career saw them become one of Australia’s most loved ‘art rock’ bands with a near cult status, and the cherry on top – even an ARIA award.

It’s been a long time coming. So long in fact that an excellent makeshift fan-made 12 disc DVD set, appropriately-entitled Stalkerbait, was released late last year by the ever thorough Mongoloid Dave. If you’ve got 75 clams and a hell of a lot of time before the ‘official’ DVD is released - you can grab it right here.
In the meantime, if you’re Custaro knowledge isn’t up to scratch, why not get yourself re-acquainted with this gem…
Egg Records in Newtown not only offers the everyday music fan a great range CDs vinyl, but also loads of crazy rare memorabilia for the slightly obsessed music fan in all of us. From original plastic Beatle’s wigs to Snoop Dogg talking dolls, the large range of merchandise kept pristine inside the store’s series of glass cabinets is practically priceless - which is why we peeled off the insulting $19.99 price tag of the following piece of ultra-rare Dave McCormack history right away!
“$19.99?!” I hear you all exclaim, “this must be some kind of mistake! Surely this time capsule of Australian rock music* is worth at least seven times more than that?” Well faithful readers, you’re absolutely right. And because we know how much you love all the Dave treats we continuously dish out for you - we decided to upload what can only be described as ‘the only video that made me feel the slightest shred of patriotism’ to the stream-worthy realm of Youtube. Highlights include a very moustachioed Dave wearing a Savage Garden shirt being interviewed by Dylan on Recovery and footage of Custard absolute pwning the crowd at a music festival. Sigh. Those were the days.
*The item is actually a 10 minute promo VHS from the late nineties entitled “A Beginner’s Guide To Custard July 98”. The cover is blank except for the band’s management contact numbers and email addresses. And while this video could be found on the bonus Loverama CD-ROM, we couldn’t refuse this baby in all of it’s crackly analogue goodness.
