In the 1970’s here in Australia, the two biggest bands in the land – Sherbet and Skyhooks – were in direct competition with each other for the hearts and minds of teenyboppers. It was one of those media-created rivalries (Beatles vs Stones, Oasis vs Blur etc) designed to increases sales for both bands.
I played you a Sherbet song yesterday, so I thought it only fair that I play you a Skyhooks song today. Here’s Skyhooks’s ode to the glory of the riff:
Skyhooks – “Million Dollar Riff” (1975)
