Furious Turtles - Endangered Species ep

These guys were everywhere in Brisbane in the mid-eighties.. Totally Ska-licious!!

Ray Moynihan the guitarist was a 4 ZzZ announcer/ news Journo and in several other bands including 'I Am Vertical' with Geoff Woods and Andrew Bartlett. He is now a medical journalist of some note. I will try and dig up a great interview with 612abc Steve Austin last year regarding his new book.

I had a copy of this EP on cassette when I was in year 9 or 10 (?). God, I loved it then. The tape went missing some time in the 90s and I have never been able to track down the Furious Turtles until now.

Can't stop listening to it. Better than I remember. :)
