released October 1, 1995

Recorded and mixed by Mark Adams at Happy Valley, North Fitzroy (which is nowadays the antique shop next to the Moroccan Soup Bar).

Originally released on CD by Candle Records in 1995.


"While most twee bands embodied overcast English winters, the eternally sunny Lucksmiths were a cloudless Australian afternoon. The effervescent Melbourne trio introduced its bubbling rhythms and witty wordplay on early lo-fi records but refined its approach on The Green Bicycle Case. An endearing mix of danceable pop songs and down-tempo ballads, the album abdicated twee's security blanket without abandoning its wide-eyed wonder. Name-checking Rita Heyworth while slyly nudging Sgt Pepper on "Only Angels Have Wings", frontman Tali White's conversational tenor resembled a more tuneful, Victorian-tongued John Darnielle."

— Noah Bonaparte Pais, Magnet ("75 Lost Classics" feature)
