Profile Extremely rare indie released back in 1993 in limited 1000 copies from this Australian short-lived outfit. The band play a mixture of melodic rock with southern and rock ‘n’ roll hits in the vein of bands like De Mont, Georgia Satellites and Manito Park where the semi-ballad “Lonely Winter” is the standout track of the album. Not something exciting here as it happened with the production. Collectors value.

    These guys were great – they mattered – they lived it and they rocked it. I wish I had their soul and authenticity. I don’t know why they did not make it in commercial terms but live they were amazing. Rock on keepers!

    Agreed- they were our support band back in the noiseworks days – and they were great. Bad management and a crap record deal stranded these guys. We were robbed of some great talent – their second albulm burnt beyond recognition is an unbelievable sophomore – but hard to find.

    Yep – it’s true they worked it good. Gotta say I had a great night with Welshy – the guitarist in Geelong – when they supported us. Guy can move 🙂 Liked the singer also – but we didn’t get to chat – headliners prerogative:) great albums – but no help to market – sad loss akin to screaming jets – but thes guys were talented.
