Yuuup at the time when the aussie music scene was pub rock. I loved them along I'm Talking, Kate Ceberano, The Rockmelons who were doing r'n'b/dance music, and were really great.

Aussie rock ruled!
First concert I saw live was Pseudo Echo/Uncanny X-Men. We got some great local acts down here in Tassie back in the day.
Saw Geisha underage in a pub- packed shit all night that I'd get caught lol.

Saw I'm talking during Australian Made.

I honestly can't remember seeing the band live but fammed out at a 1927 gig when Paul was on keys.

And I saw Countdown spectacular (2?)
He was music director/ on stage all night.
Plus rocked the keytar to a few Wa Wa New songs as well.
Very talented man.

Great loss to music
