Eskimo Joe

Sweater is the debut EP by Eskimo Joe, released in April 1998. The title track "Sweater" received plenty of airplay on Australian youth radio station Triple J,[1][2] reaching #33 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 1998.[3]

Sweater was said to have been influenced by fellow Perth band Turnstyle who returned the favour by writing their Top 20 ARIA hit "Spray Water on the Stereo" as a parody of Eskimo Joe.

The music video for the song "14Hz" features Claire Hooper, one of the team captains on the news-based comedy quiz show television show, 'Good News Week'.
