Weddings, Parties, Anything

Band, 1984-1999 AU, Melbourne

Folk rock band from Melbourne Australia, formed in 1984 and active until 1999. Their name came from The Clash song "Revolution Rock" and musicologist Billy Pinnell described their first album as the best Australian rock debut since Skyhooks' Living in the '70s. The band was led by Mick Thomas, the only continual member throughout the group's history. Their single "Father's Day" was nominated for Single of the Year as well as winning Song of the Year at the 1993 ARIA awards. They were renowned for their energetic live performances and in particular their annual Christmas shows at the Central Club Hotel in Swan Street, Richmond held in the lead up to Christmas Eve every year from the late 1980s until 1998. The band reunited to play live on a number of occasions since their original break up. In November 2012 the band were inducted into the EG Hall of Fame, with Mick Thomas stating that the show would be the last time the band performs.
