The Crusaders-Fat,Drunk And Stupid-Aussie Crackpots

Yeah I think someone posted some Crusaders on their blog site
recently, but they didn't post this one from 1996.This is fair game.
So let's add this one too,because YES I think this is a great band who is
shame-fully unknown! They're from Australia, and play a mixture of
surf,garage,and punk music. And yeah they play wearing these awful
costumes,and they look like "Crusaders" Get it? They're a rough and
tumble bunch, a lot like the Mummies, but without the funny smell!
They drink a lot, and have more fun than we do!
They're probably still playing in Australia right now.But I haven't
seen any of their releases lately, and have to wonder if they
broke up. (?) It would be a shame as well, they released some fine
music on Dionysus Records,and Larsen Records(France) and a
few singles on other small labels. They did tour the United States in
1998 (I think that was the year I saw them play)
(It's kinda blurry to me)and they never came back since
(that I know of). So the best I can do for you is at least make this
available to you to hear. I love them,once I heard the single
"Yeah Yeah" on Dionysus, I couldn't help but love them, and buy
all of their records! Please do the same!
