Australian band Bandicoot was essentially the duo of Mick Fettes (who had recently left Madder Lake) and Shane Bourne (who later became known as a comedian and actor).
The two knew each other from the Reefer Cabaret and teamed up to record and tour as Bandicoot, with the help of a few friends, including Gary Young (ex-Daddy Cool) on drums.
They released the one self-titled album and the single Living Off The Radio from it, both in 1976 on the short-lived Rainbird label. The single just scraped into the Aussie top 100 but the album did not chart.
