The Finkers - Double Back & Go - 2000

The Finkers were a powerpop four piece from Sydney, Australia. Formed in 1998 around the nucleus of powerpop drummer/collector Mickster and pop producer Michael Carpenter. Their debut live show (July '99) was also the album launch for their debut album "Fresh Set-o-Prints", and within 12 months they had released a followup in 2000's "Double Back & Go". In 2001 The Finkers toured Spain, France and Germany to promote the double 12" re-issue for the 2 albums. In 2002 Japan's Wizzard in Vinyl label released a Finkers compilation titled "Whole Lotta Fun", and 2003 saw THE FINKERS final recordings released as the "Stance".
