Yes folks its been forty years since Festival Records released a remix of The Nips Are Getting Bigger and the rest is history.  We at MEMO are celebrating by giving you 20% off your nips of whatever takes your fancy.  MENTAL As Anything’s music is characterised by poppy, accessible and well-crafted melodies and lyrics, and their work showcases an ironic, satirical and self-deprecating sense of humour.

The band formed in Sydney in 1976, initially playing to students at parties, pubs and uni dances, when they caught the attention of new independent Regular Records.

The band sold out 1300 copies in a fortnight in late 1978 of the three track vinyl Mental As Anything Plays At Your Party with one track The Nips Are Getting Bigger.
