Formed in 1979 by ex Split Enz member Phil Judd, The Swingers had a major hit in 1981 with Counting The Beat before disbanding in 1982. However, they did have a loyal following and we’ve made a great Fansite for the band our Website of the Week. Swing with The 80s Lunchbox weekdays at midday on The Cheese.
Without record producer Trevor Horn, the 80s would sound quite different. Trevor started his career producing punk bands in the 70s, had a brief career as an artist in his own right in The Buggles and Yes. However his work as the producer of 80s music for acts as diverse as Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Dollar put a lasting stamp on the sounds of the decade. We’ve made Trevor’s Official Website our Website of the Week on The 80s Lunchbox, weekdays at midday on The Cheese.
Beds Are Burning brought Sydney band Midnight Oil to the attention of the charts in the late 80s and they’re still doing the rounds and packing them in. We celebrate “The Oil” this week on The 80s Lunchbox (weekdays at midday on The Cheese) as we make their Official Site our Website Of The Week.
