The Missing Links - Driving You InsaneGenerally considered to be Australia's wildest group, The Missing Links played a raw R'n'B sound influenced by The Pretty Things. The second line-up was even more raucous than the first. They were one of the first Australian groups to grow long hair and destroy equipment on stage.They had a great reputation as a live band. Their first 45 was the rarest of the four. Line-up (B) was responsible for the following three. Their piece-de-resistance was You're Driving Me Insane. The flip-side Something Else and Nervous Breakdown on the reverse of their second Philips 45 were both Eddie Cochran covers. Their final 45 was a backward recording of Bo Diddley's Mama Keep Your Mouth Shut, which was long enough to cover both sides.Their EP featured four tracks, I'll Go Crazy, Don't Give Me No Friction, One More Time and Woolly Bully, but was not of a particularly high standard. Still it has been reissued on Raven as has their album. Guitarist Doug Ford, a key figure in their second line-up, was later in The Master's Apprentices, whilst Peter Anson went on to Jeff St. John and The Id.
