Lockdown saw the emptying of many glory boxes, as musicians deprived of an outlet dug into their lost archives. One such box contained the TashMints unreleased record from 2009, featuring a swag of tunes written by Link McClennan, and a couple of covers (The Gun Club & The InCrowd).
Featuring members from a coterie of Melbourne bands: The Meanies, Bindi, Mach Pelican, Sore Eyes, Stoneage Romeos and The Breadmakers, The TashMints coalesced in 2008, recorded the Lp in 2009, then disbanded abruptly in 2010.
They played a lot of live shows over that period, and plan to do so again with the 2022 release.
