Enjoy the finer points of their council-wide accreditation.
Puka Joe Lily (collector of discontinued hipsters): multiple origin gtrs, bass, programming, production, engineering, graphic design, squinting, words & music.
Self-raised in a converted flour mill, Puka is the founder of ‘Make Poetry History’ and spends every other weekend stockpiling royalty free words.
His mother, Gudrun was the star of ‘Kyllä, teidän lantion puhuu samaa kieltä kuin minä kyllä’ (screened in Sweden as ‘Ja, Talking Bum-Bum, Ja’) a farcical Finnish sex romp of the early 70’s whilst his father was the infamous bus conductor Ukko Joe Lily of Vaasa who once detoured a bus full of passengers across the frozen Baltic Sea to Umea to purchase Scandinavia’s first ever cassingle.
Sammy Hankla (‘disinherited’ heir to the Finnish throne): gtrs, bespokeless bass, synth, top-knot, music.
Spent his formative years writing an unauthorised autobiography while living ‘between countries’ in a train at Helsinki Station. Eventually smuggled into Estonia disguised as a club mascot, he forged a career as a purveyor of high quality bespoke testicals. He made interstate headlines in 2013 by suing Lancelot Armstrohm for copyright infringement after a photo of the disgraced tricyclists’ new ball-bag appeared in 'scrote weekly'. After legal costs forced the closure of his men’s sexual health charity 'beyond blue-ball' Hankla was introduced into Australia as a controlled predator to combat the spread of redfoo.
Llarold Drooks (reclusive inventor of 3 minute noodles): gtrs & bass, yahtzee, lap steel, music.
After Hanrahann blind sided him with the 2 minute noodle revolution, Larrold spent years trying to achieve a 1 minute cold-fusion noodle before quitting the business in shame and taking up a ‘guitarist in residence’ position at his local Lithuanian consulate. In 2010 was crowned tallest man in Lithuania, a title he puts down to a strenuous, but in no way Romanian gymnast-esque, early childhood lake-sitting regime.
Chuck Mannum (part-time child of the 70’s): drums & counting.
Founding member of the ‘Mount Gambier Pizza Hut Girators’- a troupe of mutant sea urchins who survived by putting their own clenched fists in their mouths for discarded calzone crusts. Is regrettably unable to cat-call girls after he forgot to use a stunt penis in ‘Dirtbike Derros’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWYjZeB-T7I) and his actual member was ripped off. Attempts to digitally remaster it failed due to a lack of government arts funding.
