In the tradition of many great bands, Bored Games formed while attending high school and debuted at the schools talent contest in 1979. They went on to play a show supporting Toy Love. Featuring Carter as the vocalist, the band included the likes of Wayne Elsey (The Stones, DoubleHappys), Terry Moore (The Chills) as well Fraser Batts, Jonathan Moore and Jeff Harford. The band broke up in 1981 before Who Killed Colonel Mustard was released. However, they left behind 4 catchy tracks, packed with teenage angst manifested in early punk stylings.
