Well, I guess that, given the name of my radio program on 94.7 The Pulse, this had to get a run, didn’t it!

Whilst not the most melodic tune released during the 1970’s, it certainly displayed contemporary Australian rock and roll at its finest. I was fortunate enough to interview the great Jim Keays a few years before he passed away and he spoke of the recording of this track and the need to create an almost primal scream to give the song the energy it deserves.

Simple, straightforward and, if you are listening to my program – sound advice!
