Weddings, parties, anything were a great story.
They were almost a hobby band until they wrote "Fathers Day", then suddenly found themselves winning at the ARIA awards. They were in a state of disbelief at what was happening to them.

Hunters and Collectors have been around for a long time. I saw them in concert once, and they were ordinary.
Pretty much, They were all 10-pound Poms (or from Netherlands, in Harry Vanda's case). Got together in migrant hostels.

How did I miss this thread?
Couldn't hear the first three, somehow not allowed, but that was partly remedied with the international version of Que Sera.
Have liked all of the linked that I did hear, which, for Ms. Picky, is unusual.
Keep the thread going!

Beatles meant a lot of things to a lot of DJ music lovers! While many did not think of them as a garage band, their 60’s singles like "Day Tripper" and "Ticket to Ride," definitely had a special place in my high school garage band. They had set a template for lots of aspiring bands. Quite a memory!
