Regurgitator - Kung Foo Sing : Throwback Thursday

Brisbane band Regurgitator formed in the early 90's as a side project for Quan Yeomans, Ben Ely and Martin Lee who were each busy with other bands as their main focus (Zooerastia, Pangaea). Regurgitator received some radio exposure with singles 'Track 1' and 'Blubber Boy' from the bands 2nd EP 'New' putting them on the radar with Triple J and various alternate music stations around Australia.

The bands first album 'Tu-Plang' (meaning Jukebox in Thai) saw the band release singles 'Kung Foo Sing' and 'I Sucked a Lot of Cock to Get Where I am' causing both controversy and more recognition due to radio host Alan Jones's campaign to have the song removed from aussie playlists. Ultimately Regurgitator had the last laugh winning Best Debut Album and Best Alternate Release at the ARIA's in 1996.

The next few years saw them release their 2nd and biggest album to date 'Unit', a further experiment in sound for the band and netting them a further 5 ARIA Awards in 1998.

In 2013 the band released their 8th album, 'Dirty Pop Fantasy' and engaged in touring the new work. They have added shows at Hunter Valley Brewery (Maitland), The Entrance Leagues Club (Bateau Bay) and The Tattersalls Hotel (Penrith) to their tour which wraps up over the next week.
