Not much was ever written about Porcelin Bus while they
were around in the ten year period 1981 to 1991. Since then
little has become virtually nothing. And that’s a tragedy,
because this was a terrific band that didn’t deserve to be lost
amongst Sydney contemporaries like Died Pretty,
the Celibate Rifles, New Christs, Happy Hate Me Nots,
and a host of other bands that shared the Citadel label with
them or appeared on other local labels.
They made three records, two in 1988 – “talking to god”
and “sacred relics”and recorded their third lp in February 1990.
The resulting eight song collection was prophetically entitled
Fragile. Shortly after releasing Fragile, Porcelin Bus
toured Europe to enthusiastic crowds. However they
band was disappointed with the album and on returning
to Australia, the band folded.
