Bored! were formed as a punk rock band in Geelong in 1987 with Grant Gardner on bass guitar, Adrian Hann on keyboards, Justin Munday on drums, John Nolan on guitar (ex-Behind the Magnolia Curtain) and Dave Thomas on guitar and vocals (ex-Bodies, Slaughter House).[Thomas' previous punk band, Bodies, had formed in Geelong in 1983, by 1985 he had joined the Melbourne-based group, Slaughter House. Late in 1986, Thomas started a new band, International Rescue, which successively became Sister Anne and then White Noise. By 1987, the group had the line-up of Gardner, Hann, Munday, Nolan and Thomas and were renamed as Bored!.heir name was derived from a 1978 single, "Bored", by Detroit punk rockers Destroy All Monsters.
In October 1988, Bored! issued their debut extended play, Bored!, on the independent label, Grown Up Wrong, which included a cover version of Lobby Loyde's "Human Being".[1] Punk rock webzine, Noise for Heroes' Steven Gardner, described the EP, "basic, heavy riffs that grind away, drums that never tap when they can bludgeon, and David Thomas singing voice, a voice whose general texture sounds like The Rules being ripped in two."[2] In the following year they released, Negative Waves, their first studio album.[3][4] After its appearance Gardner was replaced on bass guitar by Tim Hemensley (ex-Royal Flush, God).[1] With Hemensley on board they released a second EP, Take It Out on You, in 1990 and toured Europe.[1]

In 1991 Hemensley and Nolan left to form Powder Monkeys, Munday and Thomas continued with Russell Baricevic (Gas Babies, Macho Clowns) on bass guitar. In December they released a second album, Feed the Dog, on Rattlesnake Records.[1][5] Their third album, Junk, appeared in October 1992 with eight tracks produced by The Celibate Rifles' guitarist, Kent Steedman; and four tracks by Rose Tattoo's Peter Wells.[1] In March 1993 their fourth album, Scuzz, collected thirteen studio out-takes, recorded between 1991 and 1992, and nine live tracks recorded on 13 May 1992 at Prince of Wales Hotel.[1][6] By the end of 1993 Bored! had disbanded
