The Lime Spiders were formed in 1979 by Mick Blood, who cites their influences as being 1960s garage bands with psychedelic rock, together with Darryl Mather, Eric Grothe and Dave Guest. The band's name is based on a non-alcoholic Australian cocktail (a combination of vanilla ice cream and lime soda).
These guys are a great band and have reformed a number of times over the years. They were probably a bit raw to have great commercial success but bands like the Lime Spiders are what makes Australia's pubs and clubs such great places to go on a Friday or Saturday night.
