Electric Pandas were formed in Sydney in 1983 and comprised Buckfield (vocals/guitar), Tim Walter (guitar), Warren Slater (bass) and Mark Stinson (drums).
The band were signed to the Regular label and their first release was the single, "Big Girls" written by Buckfield, in April, 1984. The track was featured on commercial radio playlists and music commentator, Ian "Molly" Meldrum, raved about Electric Pandas on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) pop music show Countdown. "Big Girls" reached #8 in Sydney by May, and peaked at #18 on the Kent Music Report for Australian singles charts by mid-year. A relentless touring schedule led up to the release of Electric Pandas' debut EP, Let's Gamble, in December, 1984. The EP peaked at #81 on national charts.
