Happy Ships

Cape Town-based band who formed in 1980: Wayne Rath (drums, guitar, vocals), Phillip Nangle (agricultural implements, vocals, chants), Lloyd Ross (guitar, bass, voice, studio), Hamish Davidson (sax, voice, implements), Warrick Sony (bass, drums, voice, trombone) and Jono Partridge (pockets – which involved rhythmically shaking loose change in one of his trouser pockets).

They only ever did three live performances but did release the album Sound Future in 1984.
