Album Review

The album that helped The Whitlams find more than just a cult audience, Eternal Nightcap was full of gentle, well-crafted, piano-driven pop songs.

Exploring two major themes; the accidental death of vocalist Stevie Plunder in 1996 (expressed in the sad, beautiful "Charlie" trilogy), and the strain of a long-distance relationship, Eternal Nightcap became a surprise hit for the band in Australia in 1998.

The album opens with "No Aphrodisiac", the first single from the album and one of its finest moments. "No Aphrodisiac" is fairly representative of the mood of gentle introspection on the album, although there is enough variation with tracks like "You Sound Like Louis Burdett", a cover of Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up In Blue" and the Pogues-inspired "Band on Every Corner" to avoid Eternal Nightcap from becoming bogged down.

Customer Reviews

such an amazing band

over the years the whitlams hav acompished so much, to have such big and succesful songs (especially on this album) such as No Aphrodisia, Charlie No. 3 or Life's A beach. all these songs hav a story or some meaning that you can relate too. Buy Now Pay Later is a great, soft calming song (my favourite). the whitlams are a great aussie band!


I've known this album since I was about 3 and I've grown up with this album, it is one of the most beautiful and inspiring albums I've ever heard

Great album

My cousin put me onto this album when I was a young fella. It struck many cords with me and 15 Years on I can still sing along to the entire album. So much depth to this gem. If you are not to familiar with the whitlams then start here at eternal nightcap.
