East was the third studio album by Australian pub rock band Cold Chisel, released in June 1980. The album peaked at No. 2 on the national chart and was the biggest-selling Australian album release of the year. It was the only Cold Chisel album to chart in America, reaching 172 on the Billboard 200. The cover art was inspired by the 1798 painting The Death of Marat.
This song is a sarcastic dedication to Ita Buttrose.
