Total sales of over a half a million, with hits including the Number 1 smash hit "50 Years" and Top 10 hits "The Party" , "Everybody Wants To Work" and "How Do You Get Your
Kicks", as well as a Double Platinum selling album "Cos Life Hurts".
With a massive following, filling the Horden Pavilion (Sydney) & Festival Hall (Melbourne) Uncanny X-Men were one of biggest bands in the 80s.

Kids in the Kitchen, the 80s "new wave" band that formed in 1984, quickly raced to the top of the charts with their Platinum selling debut album "Shine". Yielding 10 top ten singles including "Change in Mood", "Bitter Desire" , "Current Stand", “Something That U Said” and more.

MICHAEL PAYNTER

The musical evolution of Michael Paynter has been a series of obsessive    love affairs. At the age of 7 it was the piano, at age 12 it was the guitar and by the age of 15 he was crashing through a set of drums.

It's a natural progression that, at the age of 22, the Melbourne-born singer, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist unleashes his debut record, This Welcome Diversion, a travelogue of expectations and disappointments through the eyes of an optimist.

“If there’s a thread through my songs, it’s my positive spin on life. It’s a wonderful experience and you need to have fun even when you’re facing up to its challenges.”

This Welcome Diversion is packed with guitar-driven songs, at once both sharp and worn a little around the edges. The album was recorded with U.S. producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More Maroon 5, Bic Runga) at Sound City Studios where Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana, and Tom Petty cut their classic records.

“The experience of making this record took me to a whole new level. Matt was very encouraging, and working with someone of that calibre in a studio with that kind of history just brought out the best in me.”
