Grinspoon

Grinspoon (Green EP)

In 1997 Grinspoon released their debut album, 'Guide To Better Living.' Going on to boast double-platinum sales of more than 140,000 copies on the back of five singles - "Pedestrian," "DC×3," "Repeat," "Just Ace" and "Don't Go Away" – the album spent 36 weeks in the ARIA Top 50. Recorded and mixed in just two days at Grevilia Studios in Brisbane, the EP contains an early version of Sickfest – the song that won them the inaugural triple j Unearthed competition in 1995.

 

This was the EP that began what has become the long and continuing career of one of Australia’s most successful and hardest working rock bands.

20 years later – with the album chalking up a double decade of acclaim – the band emerged from hiatus to celebrate their debut album with the "Guide To Better Living" tour in 2019. To correspond with the tour came the 20th Anniversary Edition of 'Guide To Better Living' on Vinyl! This is the first time the album has been released on vinyl.

 

Fans of the EP will remember the recording also contained a hidden track ‘Dr Grinspoon’ named after an Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School who supported the medicinal use of marijuana, after whom the band are named. This hidden recording is preserved on this reissue.
