Like wow. For three decades the Hoodoo Gurus have consistently been one of the most inventive, lyrically smart and goddamn exciting rock’n’roll bands Australia has ever produced. Oh yeah, and they’ve done it with style, panache and a wicked sense of humour.
The strange and enthralling saga of the Hoodoo Gurus began when three relocated Perth musicians – Dave Faulkner, Roddy Radalj and James Baker – teamed up with Sydney-based Kimble Rendall to play a rooftop party in Sin City on New Year’s morning 1981. As Le Hoodoo Gurus (why the ‘Le’? Because they could.) the band had released a debut single, Leilani. By the time it was released Rendall had moved on to work in the film industry, Radalj to form another band and the lineup was set with Brad Shepherd on guitar, bassist Clyde Bramley and Mark Kingsmill taking over the drumming duties.
