Bored Games - Who Killed Colonel Mustard
Released the same year as the Dunedin Double, it introduced the music of a 17-year-old Shayne Carter, who would later go on to form the DoubleHappys and Straitjacket Fits.
In the tradition of many great bands they formed while attending high school, debuting at the school’s 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 teenaged angst manifested in early punk stylings. Now re-mastered as part of the Record Store Day 2014, the release is limited to 1000 copies and includes an insert of previously unseen photos.
