Shirk Life is the third EP by Australian post punk rock band Good Boy, released in November 2017 via Barely Dressed Records.

Good Boy have built a reputation for barnstorming live shows and recordings recalling the best of Cloud Nothings, Parquet Courts and Australia’s influential Eddy Current Suppression Ring.

Good Boy are a three-piece band originating from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The members of the band are Rian King (vocals, bass), Stu McKenzie (drums) and Tom Lindeman (guitar).

Here is an extract from the Remote Control Records website about the release of the Shirk Life EP with bonus Plum EP included on the vinyl edition: “…Good Boy have released their scorching EP Shirk Life, a whip-smart, catchy-as-hell collection of songs that show a young band finding and questioning their place in the world.

Until recently, Good Boy never thought of themselves as a political band but sometimes the times just force your hand. The EP’s first track ‘A Waste Of 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded)’ spits a self-explanatory message about the absurd and insulting marriage equality plebiscite.

Similarly, ‘Fishing With A Shotgun’ and ‘Hell in a Handbasket’ see the with frustration about the seeming non-choice between neo-liberal, right-wing and conservative politicians.

Stand-out track ‘1972 VW Superbug’ is a nostalgic sprawler which explores regional life via bored late-nights in their hometown of Bundaberg, Queensland. Never has “rum-city” been sung about with such romance and pathos. Meanwhile, the final track, ‘Majic Country’ is an ode to their new home of Fortitude Valley…”

The EP was produced and engineered by Tim Fitz (Middle Kids), and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring / Total Control)

The Plum EP was originally released in September 2016.

Check out the tracks:  Fishing With A Shotgun”; “A Waste Of Approximately 122 Million Dollars (Taxpayer Funded) “; “1972 VW Superbug”; “Majic Country”; and “S.O.G.K.”.

This limited edition 12” vinyl EP is on black vinyl with a printed insert, digital download code, plus bonus Plum EP, pressed in Australia.
