CD

1st released  29th May, 2004

From the Liner Notes:
“This was a huge hit in Australia for Ross Wilson's Mondo Rock.  This is the other demo by Peter with John Cartwright, produced in 1990.  The backing recorded as before at John's studio and Peter's vocals at Gisborne.  It is an amazing rendition by Peter.  He had a thumping migraine at the time and sang the song and the entire backing vocals, whilst lying flat on his back on a couch in his lounge room.”
