Description

Red Mole & Wide Mouthed Frogs souvenir badges (1 of each) 45mm tin badge with laminated printed logos lightly oxidized on the exposed tin backs

Own a rare piece of NZ music / theatre history!!

The Wide Mouthed Frogs (1978 - 80) featuring among others Jenny Morris. Morris became a schoolteacher and moved to Wellington, where, in December 1978, the all girl group The Wide Mouthed Frogs got together to play the Artists’ Co-op. The six-piece all singing, all swinging group featured Morris on lead vocals, plus Tina Matthews (bass), Andrea Gilkison (guitar, keyboards), Sally Zwartz (drums), Katie Brockie and Sarah Mulheron. The latter two promptly retired, and were replaced by singers Callie Blood and Nicky Treadwell (keyboards). Their press release, written by Mark Cubey, noted that their show “includes various male guests, included for sex appeal, but the music is all their business, encompassing many different styles … with a visual appeal that words cannot do justice to.”
