Machine Gun Fellatio was an alternative Australian band, composing, recording and playing music of a large range of styles. They are well known for their on-stage antics and humorous lyrics as well as the musical merits of their songs. Their outrage-provoking name (apparently coined after being spotted in some graffiti) gives some idea of the attitude that pervades the band's work. They are also sometimes compared to the American jack-of-all-trades band, Ween. Machine Gun Fellatio was formed in 1997 by three of their line up. Their first release, Unsound Sounds was a collection of songs by themselves and two other bands - The Libertines and Limebunny. The three groups were not completely separate, as there was some overlap between members. Machine Gun Fellatio's first well known track was Isaac or Fuzz, a song made of parts of a voice message left at a recording studio (mostly humming the tune to "Reach Up" by the Paul Oakenfold-related project Perfecto Allstarz), put to a fast dance beat.
