Song of the day: Boom Crash Opera – "Onion Skin"

Here’s Boom Crash Opera with “Onion Skin” (1989):


Boom Crash Opera was one of the few Australian bands I really liked in the ’80s (my least favourite musical decade of all). I always thought of them as a sort of Simple Minds-with-anthems due to their cavernous sound and shout-along choruses. “Onion Skin” opened their second album These Here Are Crazy Times (1989) – and an eminently suitable album opener it was, too.

I’m pleased to say that this song has nothing at all to do with Shrek.
