Artist Name: Grong Grong
Album Title: Grong Grong
A punk rock band from Adelaide, Australia which formed in 1983 by singer Michael Farkas, his brother guitarist Charlie Tolnay, bassist Dave Taskas and drummer George Klestinis. Allegedly Grong Grong were named after an incident in which Farkas consumed acid during a road trip from Adelaide to Sydney. After losing his grip on reality somewhat during the trip he arrived in the rural New South Wales town of Grong Grong, the name of which Farkas found hilarious. Later, when in Sydney trying to get into a local club for free, Farkas pretended to be in a band named Grong Grong to gain access. The ruse worked and Farkas decided that the name was lucky.
