Permanent Friend by Girl Overboard
This episode has a grab from the song Permanent Friend by Australian band Girl Overboard. I saw Girl Overboard give an awesome show at The Great Northern Hotel one time, and for the close of the show the entire band played an array of drums and other percussion as a lead in to this song.
Sadly the band disbanded a few years later and even this record is difficult to come by these days. If you ever see it in a second hand shop – grab it.
Each show we will feature a grab from a favourite song. The criteria for the song selection is this:

  • Must be an Australian band, and preferably from Sydney
  • Must be from the 1980’s
  • Must be a band we have seen live
