Pink Suit Blue Day is the debut album by Australian indie rock band Eurogliders, released in 1982. Their debut single, "Without You", was released in June and peaked into the top 40 of the Australian Kent Music Report singles chart. A follow-up single, "Laughing Matter" in September did not chart into the top 50. Pink Suit Blue Day, produced by Englishman Lem Lubin, did not peak into the top 50 of the Australian Kent Music Report albums chart.
Guitarist and singer, Bernie Lynch (as Rip Torn) fronted a new wave band, The Stockings, in Perth, Western Australia in the late 1970s. He left in early 1980 to form Living Single with his domestic partner, UK-born vocalist, Grace Knight, which included Crispin Akerman on guitar, Don Meharry on bass guitar, Guy Slingerland on drums and Amanda Vincent on keyboards. By the end of 1981, drummer John Bennetts replaced Slingerland and the band changed their name to Eurogliders. They were signed by manager, Brian Peacock, to their first recording and publishing contracts with Polygram. They recruited Melbourne bass player Geoff Rosenberg to replace Meharry.
In late 1981, Eurogliders travelled to the Philippines capital of Manila, to start recording their first album, Pink Suit Blue Day, produced by Englishman Lem Lubin, which did not peak into the top 50 of the Australian Kent Music Report albums chart. From Manila, they relocated to Sydney where several tracks were re-recorded and the entire album was remixed. They released their first single in June, "Without You", which peaked into the top 40 on the Kent Music Report singles chart. A follow-up single, "Laughing Matter" in September did not chart into the top 50.
