Captain Goodvibes - Mutants Of Modern Disco (Volume 1)

Captain Goodvibes, aka the Pig of Steel, was the creation of Australian
cartoonist Tony Edwards and became an icon of Australian
surfing culture in the 1970s.
This is what is called a maxi single, 8 tracks coming to us thanks to
Matt and his amazing record collection.
Thanks Matt!

"... the Pig Of Steel, former pork chop, mutated into
existence courtesy
of a nuclear plant explosion
(and tony edwards) in the early 1970's.

First appearing in surfing magazine Tracks,
the Captain also turned out
in his own comic books,
a radio show show on (the then) Double J, a

remarkable short film "hot to trot" (god bless youtube...),
and this
piece of radioactive vinyl from 1978,
on the Sticky label (through
Regular Records).
check out his website if this makes no(n)sense for

Edwards own history/explanation/alibi and
a selection of tasty comic
