Short Note is the debut studio album by Australian rock band Matt Finish, originally released in February 1981 via Giant Records.

Matt Finish formed in 1979 by Matt Moffitt (vocals, guitars) and John Prior (drums). The line up that recorded their debut album in 1981 included Rick Grossman (bass) and Jeff Clayton (guitars, backing vocals).

Their debut album was produced by Peter Dawkins and released through Dawkins’ record label Giant Records. The album features Don Walker from Cold Chisel on piano on the track “Younger Days”.

The title track “Short Note” peaked at #18 on the Australian singles chart and has gone onto be covered by Wendy Matthews, and remains one of the most popular Australian songs of the 1980s.

The album peaked at #14 on the Australian Albums charts.

Wendy Matthews writes about Short Note: “…"I've loved this song for a long time now. It reminds me of hot summer nights. There's nothing like songs and smells that can take you back to an exact second in time... and this is one of those songs for me."

It is wonderful to see this classic Australian album being reissued on vinyl in 2017.
