Mental As Anything ‎– He’s Just No Good For You (1987)

From late in 1986 to early 1987, Mental As Anything were the opening act on the multi-group Australian Made concert tour where they were joined by former Dynamic Hepnotics keyboardist Mike Gubb.The tour started with claims of mateship and cooperation; however arguments ensued between various band managers over the proposed concert series film. At the Sydney concert, Peter Trotter, playing saxophone for Mental As Anything, collapsed on stage and died a week later. The tour ended in acrimony with two managers, Chris Murphy (for INXS) and Jeremy Fabinyi (for Mental As Anything), arguing backstage in Sydney and coming to blows. A film of the tour, Australian Made: The Movie, directed by Richard Lowenstein, was released in July 1987,but contained no footage of Mental As Anything performing. They followed the Australian Made tour by extensive touring of Europe and the UK on the back of the success of “Live it Up” and to promote their album of that year Mouth To Mouth, again produced by Richard Gottehrer.

Mouth To Mouth charted in the top 20 in Australia and the two singles lifted from it, “He’s Just No Good For You” and “Don’t Tell Me Now” both charted in the Top 40. The music video for “He’s Just No Good For You” was filmed on Scarborough Street in Monterey, New South Wales.
