Painters And Dockers

Profile:
Australian rock band formed in Melbourne in 1982. Their unusual name was chosen when playing at a pub frequented by the Federated Ship Painters and Dockers Union. The band had no name and chose 'Painters and Dockers' for the event and the name stayed.

The band released six albums between 1984 and 1994, which featured a selection of sarcastic and amusing singles, such as "Die Yuppie Die" from 1988's Kiss My Art and pro-queer and anti-monarchy "I Know Better Queens Than That" from 1994's The Things That Matter. Their greatest chart success was achieved with 1985's Nude School, which was marked by its controversial lyrics and video clip.
