Mental As Anything – The Artist/s
Mental As Anything are an Australian new wave and pop rock band that formed in Sydney in 1976. Its most popular line-up (which lasted from 1977 to 1999, and recorded all of their charting singles and albums) was Martin Plaza (birth name Martin Murphy) on vocals and guitar; Reg Mombassa (birth name Christopher O’Doherty) on lead guitar and vocals; his brother Peter “Yoga Dog” O’Doherty on bass guitar and vocals; Wayne de Lisle (birth name David Twohill) on drums; and Andrew “Greedy” Smith on vocals, keyboards and harmonica. Their original hit songs were generated by Mombassa, O’Doherty, Plaza and Smith, either individually or collectively;[ they also hit the Australian charts with covers of songs by Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry. Their top ten Australian singles are “If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?” and “Too Many Times” (both from 1981), “Live It Up” (1985) and “Rock and Roll Music” (1988). Internationally, “Too Many Times” made the Canadian top 40 in 1982, and “Live It Up” peaked at No. 3 in the UK, No. 4 in Norway, and No. 6 in Germany, after it featured in the 1986 Australian film “Crocodile” Dundee.
Live It Up – The Song
‘Live It Up’ is a single by Australian rock band Mental As Anything, first released in 1985 in Australia and then in Europe and the U.S. in 1986/87. Written by Greedy Smith, the song was not originally expected to be a hit. After the song’s appearance in the film Crocodile Dundee, however, the track became a worldwide success, reaching the top 10 across Europe. “Live It Up” is the band’s most successful and most popular song, fuelled by the catchy chorus, “Hey, yeah you, with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up. You, beside the dance floor. What do you cry for, let’s live it up.”
The Crocodile – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a Crocodile.
Crocodile Dundee is an 1986 action comedy film set in the Australian Outback and in New York City. It stars Paul Hogan as the weathered Mick Dundee, and American actress Linda Kozlowski as reporter Sue Charlton. Inspired by the true-life exploits of Rod Ansell, the film was made on a budget of under $10 million as a deliberate attempt to make a commercial Australian film that would appeal to a mainstream American audience, but proved to be a worldwide phenomenon.
Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large semiaquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia. All crocodiles are semiaquatic and tend to congregate in freshwater habitats such as rivers, lakes, wetlands and sometimes in brackish water and saltwater. They are carnivorous animals, feeding mostly on vertebrates such as fish, reptiles, birds and mammals, and sometimes on invertebrates such as molluscs and crustaceans, depending on species and age. All crocodiles are tropical species that, unlike alligators, are very sensitive to cold.
