Though their songs are unerringly catchy, Melbourne based four-piece Fur Patrol are firm believers in the power of simplicity. Their song’s first approach is a grab of full bodied rock n roll - an equal sprinkling of post-grunge angst and pre-garage soul, introspective, lyrically cathartic and wrapped up in an instrumental blanket warm and inviting.
For a band that honed their craft in the live arena, Fur Patrol scrub up very nicely in the more structured confines of the recording studio - the powerful track listing on 'Collider' is a testament to both their inherent sense of compositional dynamics and their full throttle approach to life, music and all that falls in between.
Starlifter debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Singles on 24 January 1999. It has been in the Top 40 Singles for four weeks with a highest position of #36. There are five songs by Fur Patrol in the Top 40 Singles with one reaching Number One.
