The genesis of all three bands, Hoodoo Gurus, Violent Femmes and Sunnyboys formed around the post-punk era of 1980/81, and all three would go on to play an important role in a worldwide musical change that saw indie-rock smash through the ceiling to achieve massive commercial success.

Their respective debut albums Sunnyboys (1981), Violent Femmes (1983) and the Hoodoo Gurus Stoneage Romeos (1984) remain timeless; each one regularly appearing in various All Time Top 100 lists and between them containing a jukebox worth of classics: ‘Happy Man, ‘Blister In The Sun’, ‘Leilani’, ‘Alone With You’, ‘Gone Daddy Gone’, ‘I Want You Back’ and more. Songs that define a time but are not defined by that time.
