All comes from growing up in Queensland(Go find an atlas... Queensland is a northern state in Australia, Brisbane the capital.. the rest of Australia thinks that we are 'backward' , 10 years behind the southern states..... not a lot of love between the states.
Anyhow why the Presidents of The United States? Well I think these boys would feel quite at home playing in Brisbane......brash, sarcastic, disrespectful!!!!
In 1994, the Presidents signed with the tiny Seattle label PopLlama Records and released their self-titled debut in the following year. Columbia Records signed the band shortly thereafter and re-released the album in late July, 1995. Driven by the singles "Lump," "Peaches," and "Kitty," their debut album proved to be a smash. Critics praised the Presidents' catchy, humorous, and self-deprecating songs, which were a major departure from the grunge/post-grunge sound. The album received Grammy nominations in 1996 and 1997.
