Powderfinger Self Titled 1st E.P 1992

The Mighty Finger have called it quits. A rock institution here in Oz have decided enough is enough and are finishing up. Their latest album (Golden Rule- 2009) and tour is their last. They truely are one of the great bands and although it is a shame the cynic in me can't help but feel they will be back at some stage (when they need the dough I suspect).

Lead singer Bernard Fanning is sure to release solo material. His 1st and only solo album "Tea and Sympathy- 2005" was a huge hit.

Here is where it all started. Their self financed 1st Self Titled EP from '92 sometimes called the blue ep (due to the cover). This is not a great representation of the band but it's very rare. I owned this but sold it to on ebay (to someone in the UK) a few years ago for over $200.00 bucks. Not such a good idea since they are splitting up. I am sure it's worth heaps more now!!!!
