About Stalkerbait

Stalkerbait is the name of a DVD set that I (the music is crap webmaster) originally put together back in 2006 and early 2007.  The aim was to compile some rare Custard and Titanics footage for myself, Mr McCormack, and some over enthusiastic fans.  Several people contributed footage to the set.

The original Stalkerbait DVD set comprised 12 discs and contained over 20 hours worth of music videos, television appearances, film appearances and home videos.  It spanned the years years 1988 to 2006 and included footage of Who's Gerald?, Custard, The Titanics, The Polaroids and more.  Each copy came with a 32 page colour booklet featuring tracklisting, photos, excerpts from humorous old interviews with Dave, and so forth.  I made copies for the people who contributed footage to the set, and for a small number of fans.  In mid 2007 I compiled a Stalkerbait 'bonus disc'.  This featured additional footage that I unearthed after the main Stalkerbait collection had been completed.  In November 2010, I finished a second bonus disc.  The current version of Stalkerbait comprises 14 discs, contains around 25 hours worth of footage, and encompasses the years 1988 to 2010.

Stalkerbait Compilation Videos

Below are two videos that feature footage found on the Stalkerbait DVD set.


The Stalkerbait compilation is not widely available.  It is very time consuming to make copies of Stalkerbait.  Each copy takes around 4 hours to put together, between all the disc burning and artwork.

In early 2007, I provided a copy of Stalkerbait to each person who had contributed footage to it.  I also made copies for a small number of McCormack fanatics who had not contributed footage.  Stalkerbait was then unavailable for over two years.  After receiving many requests, I did a second small run in late 2009, which sold out.  I made up a handful more copies in late 2010 and early 2011, all of which have sold out.

I will probably make up more copies of Stalkerbait up at some stage, but I am not sure when - probably not until 2012. 

If you would like to get hold of a copy of Stalkerbait, please send me an email. Ask to go on the Stalkerbait waiting list.  I will then get in touch with you if/when Stalkerbait becomes available again, and hook you up with a copy.

Copies of Stalkerbait cost $85 which includes all 14 discs, file, booklet, and postage within Australia.  International postage is slightly more and varies by destination.

If you have some rare Custard / McCormack related footage that you would like to contribute to a future bonus disc, please send me an email.
