Formed in 1984 when Gertrude fell in a drain. Charlie spent the next 6 months recording her cries for help, and only feeding her cheese pizza.
When the opening and closing of the drain due to her struggling made a great rhythm along with her cries for help, charlie realised the potential for a great song.
Forgetting all about her, he went and hired 6 "musicians" from the streets of brisbane. Charlie's idea of a musician was a man who wears only a garbage bag and speaks only mumbles about his homelessness... and it is from here that Tour de Piss gets its unique sound.
