Life Was Meant To Enjoy / Circle The Moon

Performed by Hipslingers - music and lyrics by Gionni Di Gravio © 1990

"A distinguishing feature of this record is the unique cover - a 49 piece jigsaw puzzle."

This video was produced by film maker Ian Dunn and Hipslingers trumpeter Stuart St Hill for ABC Open. It backgrounds the band and reveals how this unusual record came to be.

“Life Was Meant To Enjoy” is a 7 inch 45 RPM vinyl single released by Novocastrian indie band Hipslingers in 1991.

The flip side is a short sweet ditty called "Circle The Moon", intriguingly beautiful, with its arpeggiated melody and an equally unusually short pop form.

The single was recorded live in 1990 under a full moon in a mud brick house in the small hamlet of Monkerai just outside Dungog.
