Wacky Brisbane juggernaut Custard are returning to the NT for the first time in 30 years and they’re bringing new music, old faves and a lot of fun.

Having formed in Brisbane in 1990, Custard released five albums over the following decade (Buttercup/Bedford, Wahooti Fandango, Wisenheimer, We Have the Technology and Loverama). The band developed a cult following, playing countless shows around the country and touring overseas, as well as producing a parade of memorable singles, several of which became entrenched in Australian pop music history. ‘Apartment’ polled higher than any other local artist in triple j’s Hottest 100 in 1995, with ‘Girls Like That (Don’t Go For Guys Like Us)’ coming in at #3 in the 1998 vote, before the group disbanded in 1999. No reason was given or research conducted. Since reforming, the band has released four albums, Come Back All is Forgiven (2015), The Common Touch (2017), The Band Live In The Basement (2018) and Respect All Lifeforms.

Sure, with collective age of 429, this could possibly be the beginning of the end, or at the very least the end of the beginning. All you need to know is Custard are one damn fine pop band and this will be one super fun gig!
