-Information in grey italics is uncertain-

1992
The year in which the band is founded. Warren and Jim also join David McComb's Blackeyed Susans.

Brief early history. Mick Turner (born in Black Rock-Melbourne): starts his musical career as member of the Melbourne SS [inspired by Mick Jones's London SS in 1975] in 1979, with Dugald McKenzie. The next band he joins were the Sick Things (1979-1982, with a slight return in 1988). Several members of the Sick Things, inluding Mick, formed the short-lived Spew Forth in 1982 before establishing Fungus Brains (1982-1989). During the same period he also joins Dave Graney's Moodists, with whom he's touring overseas for the first time (UK, Europe and US in 1983-1984). When Fungus Brains are on hold Mick forms Venom P. Stinger (1986-1991), a band with Dugald McKenzie, Alan Secher-Jensen and drummer Jim White.

Jim White (born in Clifton Hill-Melbourne): starts his musical career as member of the Happy Orphans in 1980, with Conway Savage (later of Bad Seeds fame). The next band he joins are People With Chairs Up Their Noses (1981-1982). From 1982-1984 he's drumming for the Feral Dinosaurs, a band again with Conway Savage. In 1984 he's briefly in Brainshack, a band with Fungus Brains members (excluding Mick). He joins Mick Turner in Venom P. Stinger (1986-1991), a band which also briefly tours the US in 1991. In 1989 he's in the short-lived Hessian Sax, followed by a recording session for King Idiot in 1991. In 1992 he joins Warren Ellis and John Rowell in the short-lived Busload Of Faith, taking over drums from Tony Pola (Beasts Of Bourbon).

Warren Ellis (born in Ballarat 1965): starts his musical career in a school band called Paranoid. They only did live performances (1985-1986), and never recorded. In 1986 he's also briefly in These Future Kings. By 1989 Warren leaves Australia for Europe and lives for 9-10 months from busking in the streets and bars in Greece, Hungary, Scotland and Ireland, at some point even living in a whisky distillery. It's during this period that he learned to play the violin properly and to appreciate the impact of folk songs on people. After returning to Melbourne he's working as a kitchenhand and cleaner, followed by a stay in Gippsland, in country Victoria, where he teaches violin for 18 months. In 1992 he returns to Melbourne and joins John Rowell and Jim White, who replaced Tony Pola, (of Beasts Of Bourbon/Surrealists fame) in the short-lived Busload Of Faith.

When a friend opens a bar at the Baker's Arms hotel on Victoria Street, he asks Warren for a band to play live background music. Warren asks Jim White and Jim asks Mick Turner. They rehearse/improvise some 5-6 tunes in Warren's kitchen and perform the same night in front of an audience of 3 friends or so. The next rehearsal they had they recorded and it was later (partly) released as the "Sad and Dangerous" album (Poon Village/Forced Exposure-USA). Their residency at the Bakers Arms bar allows them to experiment with -improvised- music.

When we played there the place went ballistic - they started throwing biscuits and coins and bits of paper at us. Then the audience started fighting, the people who liked us against the people who hated us. When we finished, some fat guy, I think he was the promoter of the place, came over to us with two blonde women. And he said: 'Well, for $20 they'll take their clothes off. And for $50 they'll do whatever you want 'em to.'"

Photo: Credit unknown.

Note: Warren Ellis: "Then, one time we were playing this small club and it was packed, so packed that the bar staff were walking across the stage with trays of drinks. A waitress walked behind me and I didn't know she was there - I put my hand right through a glass on her tray. By the end of the song, there was blood everywhere, all over the violin and all over the drum kit. That was in Lljubjana in Slovenia. I went off to hospital and they stitched me up. When it was done, I went back to the venue and the crowd had waited around, so we played the rest of the show."

Fan: "Yes, I was there at the concert where he [Warren Ellis] cut his hand. It was in the middle of November [sic] 1996. Orto was completely crowded, full of people to the last corner. (By the way, this is one of the best rock clubs in Ljubljana.) People were drinking and smoking a lot. It was so crowded that the waiters had a lot of problems getting through to deliver drinks to customers. Warren was on the small stage, surrounded with people. As he does most of the time, he was facing the other two, the drummer and the guitarist, with his back to the public. The concert was at its peak and Warren was in his "moment" when he swung his hand back and hit a glass that someone [from the bar staff] was carrying past. The glass broke and cut his hand. They brought him to the hospital immediately. We were shocked. We thought the concert had ended. But after a half-hour or so [2 hours], Warren was back with his hand in a bandage. He took the violin and resumed the concert. The crowd was yelling enthusiastically. It was crazy... incredible. He played the concert to the end and the crowd stood up to show respect. He was shining like a diamond and the shine went to the crowd. After the concert, he was sitting with a girl at a table drinking. It was nearly early morning when I left the club with my cousin. Warren's eyes caught mine and when I passed him, he stood up, gave me his hand and kissed me. It was a friend saying goodbye to a friend. Even though we didn't know each other, we had shared a very special world of emotions, courage, sincerity, art and magic. The lovers of great music understand what I mean."

The good health was short-lived. A few days later exhaustion took its toll and Ellis contracted a skin disease. "I've done my time in casualty," he says, on the phone from Paris. A few days off in Paris were well deserved.
