Tamam Shud - Too Many Life (1969)


Tamam Shud were an Australian psychedelic and progressive rock band, formed in Sydney in 1967, which released two albums, Evolution (1969) and Goolutionites and the Real People (1970) before disbanding in 1972. They reformed in 1993 to release a third album, Permanent Culture in 1994 but disbanded again in 1995
Tamam Shud evolved from the surf band, The Sunsets, in 1967 and was based on Sydney's northern beaches. The group released two acclaimed LPs, recorded independently, which have both become sought-after collector's items.
The band reformed in 1993 with the line-up of Barron, Bjerre, Gaze and Macara to record an album Permanent Culture released in 1994 before disbanding in 1995; and reformed with the same line-up for the Long Way to the Top package tour in 2002.
