Prince Melon Records p o Box 1014 D'Hurst Syd, Australia


This is a highly recommended 7 inch on the collectible Prince Melon label which was created to release material by Ed Kuepper / Laughing Clowns & The Aints. Only two other groups had anything released on this label - Out of Nowhere (their 7" Remember Remember is definitely worth finding) and this excellent Hugo Klang single. Hugo Klang feature Ollie Olsen from the seminal Melbourne outfit Whirlywirld. Anyone familiar with Ollie would also be aware of the Young Charlatans which he formed with Rowland S Howard. They recorded Shivers before Boys Next Door, but their original and better version never got an official release until years later on the Inner City Sounds comp. Ollie was in many other groups such as Orchestra of Skin & Bone (very under-rated), No, Zye Ye Ye (who were connected to yet another seminal Australian band Primitive Calculators), Too Fat to Fit Through the Door (found on the interesting Little Bands 7") and of course Max Q with Michael Hutchence, but we can excuse Ollie for that diversion into more mainstream rock / pop. After Max Q Ollie produced music that I'm rather less interested in (which is code for techno dance house music crap) This Hugo Klang single features 2 excellent songs which are very similar to the material found on Whirlywirld's must have 12" EP. Although not labelled as such, Grand Life For Fools and Idiots is generally considered to be the A side, but the flip side Beat Up the Old Shack is equally good. Looking at the prices this has traded for over the years its fair to say that its still very affordable and far superior to many other Australian singles that fetch significantly higher prices. One day this single might get the recognition it deserves, but don't hold your breath...
