“There are other Australian albums as great as Sunnyboys 1981 debut, Sunnyboys – There aren’t any that are better” – Noel Mengel
Thirty-five years ago this month Sunnyboys released their eponymous debut. Containing the hit singles Happy Man and Alone With You plus live favourites I’m Shakin’, Trouble In My Brain, Tunnel Of Love and more Sunnyboys enraptured teenagers of the time (and generations to come) with an astute blend of hi-energy, pop hooks and brooding, longing wordplay. It was and still is a classic and has remained a constant in All Time Australian Album lists for its entire 35 year lifespan.
In celebration of the album milestone and the premiere period from when it sprang, Sunnyboys will take to the stage in February 2017 for a handful of shows playing a set entirely derived from 1981; a set that will also include Sunnyboys, the album, performed in its entirety.
“What a Thrill it will be to play our 1st album from start to finish. We have never ever done this before. Looking forward to I Can’t Talk to You (reprise)” – Peter Oxley
But wait, it gets better! For Sydney fans there will be the added thrill of seeing Sunnyboys old gigging partners Flaming Hands (featuring singer Julie Mostyn and songwriter Jeff Sullivan) performing their first show since 1985! But wait, there’s more! Also joining this momentous Sydney line-up will be legendary Sydney act Shy Impostors the pre-Sunnyboys outfit for Peter Oxley and Richard Burgman. It’s the first time Shy Impostors have played with Sunnyboys and the first time all three bands have performed together on the one bill.
“When Peter Oxley called with the proposition of reforming the Flaming Hands for a gig with the Sunnyboys I jumped at the opportunity. The two bands have a shared history both as friends and as contemporaries that played together in what was a golden era of Australian music. I later found out The Shy Impostors are also going to be on the bill … perfect … this gig will be a massive celebration!” – Julie Mostyn
