The Allniters were an Australian ska pop band based in Sydney during 1980–1987. Original line-up was Ted Ayers on sax, Dave Bebb on drums, Stuart Crysell on guitar, Martin Fabok on guitar, Peter Hill-Travis on vocals, Graham Hood on bass guitar, Brett Pattinson on vocals and Mark Taylor on keyboards. Numerous changes occurred in band members with Fabok, Hill-Travis and Pattinson common to almost all line-ups.

In 1983, The Allniters performed a ska-style cover of Bobby Bloom's hit "Montego Bay", which peaked at #16 on the Australian singles charts. They followed with an album D-D-D-Dance, which contained the slower and more mainstream "Love and Affection" single, both album and single received wide airplay on radio stations around Australia and were top 40 hits. More singles followed but Allniters separated for six months during 1985 and then continued on until July 1987 before disbanding more permanently. They briefly reformed in 1999 to tour and then record, Another Fine Mess was released before they disbanded once more, they reformed yet again during 2004 but no new material was released.
