Vampire Lovers - Singles


The Vampire Lovers, also known as Vampyre Lovers or
Vampire Lovers were a Brisbane punk rock group formed
in 1982 The band existed from 1982 to 1984 and reformed
in 1988 to disband in 1990.
Generally recognized in Australia by the alternative crowd for their
first single from 1983 called "Buzzsaw Popstar",
the band eventually released one mini L.P. called
Acid Commandos from Planet Fuzz,
which appeared in 1991, one year after the band broke up.

releases
