The first time I saw The Stiffys that were just finishing their set the The Lilypad at Big Day Out. I thought I was having a acid flashback with the return of Mother Goose, who had a minor hit way back in 1977.

Their mission statement is simple: “The Stiffys are a two-piece rock’n’roll band that dress up like sailors and sing about erections. There is no deeper meaning to our songs and if the topic isn’t STIFFYS then we will not sing about it.” Their ambition: “To be Melbourne’s number one erection-based rock band...”
They released a self titled EP with catch songs like "Erection! Everybody", "I've Got A Stiffy", "Boners (Erections Of The Penis)" and "You Are Beautiful (Stiffies Are Like Magic". I they don't do a cover of Turbonegro's "I Got Erection". Jason Leigh (bass) and Adam Stagg (drums) are certainly entertaining and check out this video as they celebrate the joys of boogie boarding at gigs.
