Named after the 1971 Alan Arkin-directed film, Rob Griffiths formed Little Murders in 1979 and they soon became the most influential mod band during the late ’70s and early ’80s in Melbourne, Australia.
The band’s debut single, “Things will Be Different”/”Take Me I’m Yours,” (December 1979), quickly sold its initial 1000 copies and remains a classic Australian pop record of the time. They would move into the power-pop scene as the years progressed and release classics like ‘She Lets Me Know’ and ‘100 drugs’.
40 years later to almost the day Little Murders released their eighth album Dromana-Rama on Off The Hip records. And 40 years have not diluted their energy one bit.
