Double Happys

Here's one of Shayne Carter's pre-Straitjacket Fits recordings from a band named after fire crackers. This recording captures the band live and includes a couple of practice tracks. The pop splendour that was later finely hooned in Shayne's next band glimmers although there are definitely shining moments. The life of the double happys was cut short due to losing a band member in a train accident. The sense of humour and love of pop culture in that was present in Shayne's first band, Bored Games track Joe 90 is revisited in Big Fat Elvis
