Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Ammonia (Dave Johnstone, Allan Balmont and Simon Hensworth) burst onto the Australian and International music scene with their breakout debut album Mint 400 on the Murmur (Sony) label in 1995. Singles "Drugs", "Ken Carter" and "Suzi Q" were released and the album in the formats of CD, Cassette and a limited edition vinyl, which is highly sought after by collectors. 

Love As Fiction Records is proud to license and re-issue the Mint 400 album on vinyl for the first time since original release, with the follow updates:

 - Remastered Audio (by Chris Hanszek of Hanszek Audio in 2023)

 - Restored original artwork

 - 180gm black vinyl

The records were pressed in Australia by Suitcase Records.

Mint 400 was recorded by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley and the band over an intense recording period at Festival studios in Sydney, directly to analogue tape. 

"From humble beginnings in our home town of Perth, we managed to record an album that took us around the world and gave us experiences we could have only dreamt of" - Dave Johnstone, Ammonia, January 2023. 

Love As Fiction Records is a one-person record label, founded in Perth Western Australia by Matt during the pandemic. Matt’s love of music and all indie 90’s, particularly Australian bands has driven the release of records by Bluebottle Kiss and Ammonia to date.
