Mental As Anything started off as students who put a band together to play blues, sixties pop, rockabilly, country and increasingly their own original compositions to fill in time at art school in Sydney Australia in the mid 1970s. Initially playing to students at parties, pubs and Uni dances they caught the attention of new independent label Regular Records who in late q1978 sold out 1300 copies in a fortnight of the three track vinyl 'Mental As Anything Plays at Your Party' with one track: 'The Nips Are Getting Bigger' on everyone's radio over Christmas.

In 1979, the song became the band's first nationwide hit on Festival Records. The LP 'Get Wet' is released and what follows is a solid stream of hit records through the 1980s and into the 1990s: 'Come Around', 'Just Like Romeo And Juliet', 'Too Many Times', 'If You Leave Me Can I Come Too?', 'Spirit Got Lost', 'I Didn't Mean To Be Mean', 'Working For The Man', 'Live It Up', 'You're So Strong', 'Date With Destiny', 'Let's Go To Paradise', 'He's Just No Good For You', 'The World Seems Difficult', 'Rock 'n' Roll Music' and 'Mr Natural' were all in the Australian Top 30.

Mental As Anything with their two original lead vocalists Martin Plaza and Greedy Smith have been touring since the late 1970s honing the craft of performing their songs live and perfecting the art of just being Mental.
