The True Story of Bananagun is the debut full-length from Melbourne group Bananagun. The record translates the energy and invention of their renowned live sets, fusing tropicalia, Afro-beat, psychedelia, garage and pop traditions. Amongst the fuzzy guitar tones, playfully percussive grooves and bright melodies is a 90-second track called "Bird Up!", featuring samples of kookaburra and parrot calls recorded in the region surrounding the home of band-founder Nik Van Bakel. It reflects Banangun's deep love of nature and the power of song in all its forms.
