1996

regurgitator.net note:
"Early in the year they find themselves in Bangkok recording debut album Tu Plang - giant moths, a studio owned by a political Thai popstar with a love for harley`s and guitars, crocodiles and a bizarre walk on live performance at a Thai disco using the house bands gear. Tu Plang was released coinciding with a guest spot on the Red Hot Chili Peppers tour of Australia in April 96, closely followed by a headline Australian tour with the special guest from Japan, the Boredoms. Next up... a short USA tour with God Lives Underwater coinciding with US release of the New EP and Sucked A lot of Cock to Get Where I am on 7” vinyl through SubPop. Then on to Japan and Australia in late 96 with CIV from NYC. Tu Plang released in Thailand, Japan and Europe. Chalked up 2 ARIA awards in Nov 96... "
