THE COMPLETE STEVE & THE BOARD

"What's a Giggle-Eyed Goo???"

Though today overshadowed by the later music from its members, Steve & The Board's recordings demonstrate them to be one of Australia's best bands of the 1960's; adept at both melodic, British Invasion-inspired Beat and Rhythm 'n' Blues Ravers.

The Complete Steve & The Board seeks to rectify this lack of recognition by gathering together the entirety of the band's all-too-brief recorded output of 16 killer 2-and-a-half-minute top-drawer hard pop gems.

Unlike many other outfits of the day, the band comprised of genuine musicians who also provided backing on recordings by many other Aussie artists of the era. The band's sole LP - included here in its entirety - was not a hastily assembled set of half-baked covers throwaways (as was de rigeur in the day), but a cohesive and fully realised album.

Rounding out this collection are four non-album single sides; included are the chart hits "The Giggle-Eyed Goo", "I Call My Woman Hinges" and "Rosalyn", plus the garage-punk classic "I Want" (as featured on Down Under Nuggets and Hot Generation!)

Board member Carl Keats would later author singles for Status Quo and Ringo Starr; while drummer Colin Petersen would go on to join The Bee Gees, and other members would play with noted Australian acts The Groove and Goanna.

Lead singer Steve Kipner would found cult band Tin Tin ("Toast and marmalade for tea") before etching out a career as a songwriter, and penning hits for Olivia Newton-John and Christina Aguilera. him!
