    Great tune, goofy vid.

    Saw them about a decade ago on I guess a reunion tour.

    Aussies, post some faves!

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    If I’m ever in a band again, unlikely as that may be, Bittersweet must be in the set list.

    Cheers,

    I was in to them in the 80's, ordered a box set of their singles from the record store on vinyl.
    Had to wait 2 months for them to come in. They had great artwork on the covers and their early stuff was pretty raw. Seen them play live in smallish bars about 4 times in the late 80's early 90's.

    Rick Grossman! I hope he's still with them. I lost touch; played with him in the Divinyls way back in the day; great guy.

    Love Shep's CBS mix'n'match sunburst Strat and Faulkner's 70s natural Tele.





    Faulkner just has a knack of writing songs that drip 60s hippy dippy tones.

    Anyway Hoodoo gurus are starting their National Tour in November, a couple of new ( old ) members and are playing my city in january/February at "THE GOV" i.e. The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel.
    Gov. Hindmarsh was our state's first Governor in 1836.

    Ya, awesome pop songs.

    Saw them a few times in their later years. Even the youngsters at the Big Day Out seemed to luv them.

    … and they seem to keep-on-keeping-on.

    'Miss Free Love' is another you gotta hear.

    Being more of a hard rocker, I was never a big fan of them. But 'Like Wow - Wipeout' is a killer song.
