Back in the 70's my friends listened to Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Queen ... not really my cup of tea ... I was more into the Beatles and The Stones ... Australia had Sherbet and Skyhooks ... again held no fascination for yours truly... then came the flood Radio Birdman and The Saints on the heavier side and the new wave side with Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons, The Sunnyboys, The Go Betweens and The Riptides. The Sports were probably the most commercially successful. Still sounds good.
Based in Melbourne, Victoria, the group signed to the Mushroom Records label and released a number of successful singles and albums. Their sound fit well with both 1970s British pub rock bands (such as Brinsley Schwarz) and British New Wave (such as Elvis Costello). Their best known songs include Boys (What Did The Detective Say?), Don't Throw Stones, When You Walk In The Room, How Come, Who Listens To The Radio?, Perhaps and Strangers on a Train
