Song of the day: Street Corner Jack – “Wrong With You”

April 25, 2010

Here’s long-defunct Adelaide band Street Corner Jack with “Wrong With You” (1980):

I didn’t notice it at the time, but hearing the song again after all these years, those verses sure do remind me of early Split Enz, especially:

Split Enz – “Maybe” (1975)

But back to “Wrong With You”.

Apart from when it was released as a single, “Wrong With You” appeared on a 1980 compilation of Adelaide music produced by a local radio station. The album was* called 5AN Patchwork. I don’t quite know why it was subtitled Australian Rock Collection, because as far as I remember they were all Adelaide bands.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a better transfer of “Wrong With You” because that album is the only place it exists now.

(*And still is.)
