Melbourne punk band that formed in 1977. After scoring a record deal after their first gig with the Suicide label, the band contributed the chilling track 'Planet on the Prowl' to the 'Lethal Weapons' (1978) compilation album. The Negatives played regular 'Suicide' gigs at the Tiger Room in Richmond. The Negatives split up early in 1979. Holmes joined Paul Kelly and the Dots, Walsh eventually joined The Moodists, and Gray went on to form the Sacred Cowboys.
