Blam Blam Blam were a New Zealand pop/rock/alternative band. Tim Mahon (bass) and Mark Bell (guitar,vo) had been members of The Plague and The Whizz Kids. After losing their drummer Ian Gilroy to The Swingers in 1980, Tim and Mark joined up with Don McGlashan, a multi-instrumentalist who played drums and sang many lead vocals.

The band's first release was the song Motivation on the Propeller Records Class of 81 compilation album. They then released a four-track self-titled EP for the label, which hit the top 40 in New Zealand. The band had two hit singles in 1981 with There is no Depression in New Zealand, and Don't Fight it Marsha, It's Bigger than Both of Us (which McGlashan later re-recorded with The Mutton Birds).
