Song of the day: Mental As Anything – "The Nips Are Getting Bigger"

Here are Mental As Anything with their debut single, an ode to the perils of alcohol:

Mental As Anything – “The Nips Are Getting Bigger” (1979)

It’s only just occurred to me, after not hearing it for ages, that the song sounds heavily influenced by early Elvis Costello. Maybe it’s because they had a Farfisa organ (like pretty much every other New Wave band in the late 70’s), and they couldn’t help but sound like early Elvis Costello.

It’s also occurred to me that the previous paragraph was particularly pointless. Sorry about that.
