God Biography (Wikipedia)
God (often stylized as GOD) was a rock 'n' roll band from Melbourne, Australia, together from 1986 to 1989 and comprising Joel Silbersher, Tim Hemensley, Sean Greenway and Matthew Whittle. All members were 15-16 at the time of the band's formation. Prior to God's formation, Hemensley had been a member of Royal Flush (with Roman Tucker, later of Rocket Science), Greenway and Whittle were members of Foot and Mouth, and Silbersher had his own radio show on 3RRR.
Their debut 7" single My Pal from 1987 is their best known track. It got very favourable reviews and sold in the thousands. It became an independent classic and cover versions have been recorded by several bands, including Magic Dirt, Violent Soho, Peabody, The Hollowmen, Bored!, A Death In The Family and Bum (from Canada).
God's first mini-album Rock Is Hell (1988), was released on Au-Go-Go Records with 4 different cover designs, one designed by each band member, due to the members' inability to agree on one cover design. Rock Is Hell was variously praised and panned by critics,[who?] but still sold respectably.
