Greedy Smith (Mental as Anything) Dead at 63

For those who know Mental as Anything, their frontman Greedy Smith died suddenly yesterday at the age of 63. RIP. Link to the ABC article at the bottom.

Here's my favourite Mentals song from the '80s - it shows typical Sydney suburban life at the time ...



It also became my favourite after one night at a camp (with tv - it was in a club house) when Rage (classic Aussie music tv show, went all night) played it on repeat ... for an hour or two ... by the end we definitely had the feeling that we'd heard that kind of thing before!

Very sad to hear that. Greedy was the (most) fun face of the band. I'll always have great memories of the Mentals, most of whom went to school a couple of suburbs across from me.

Here's Greedy with their biggest hit internationally (much to the chagrin, at the time, of Martin Plaza):
