Fronted by one of the most powerful voices in Australian music history, Billy Thorpe & the aztecs were a musical force to be reckoned with. Few Australian bands since have matched the fury or volume of billy & his aztecs during the 1970's. The conundrum of playing in a fearsome live band is that it is often difficult to record a studio album that translates that same level of quality. 'more arse than class' undoes this theory. It was the most favoured studio album by all band members, and also provides a slice of Australian musical history being the last album recorded with the "sunbury" aztecs alongside Billy Thorpe. 'More arse than class' was released in june 1974 and featured an inner-gate fold sleeve photograph of the band members' bare backsides. Filled with blues boogie rock tunes, 'more arse than class' reached #12 on the national charts and stayed in the top 20 for three months. This deluxe version has been digitally remastered, with extensive liner notes containing new interviews and rare photos. It contains 8 bonus tracks - 3 live in the studio, singles, demo's and a song the band recorded for a kawasaki motorbike advertisement. The album is also packaged in aztec music's trademark six-panel digipak. Shock.2006.
