Sad news today with reports of the death of Chrissie Amphlett in New York aged 53.
If you listened to even the smallest amount of Australian rock in the eighties you would have heard Chrissies distinctive voice. She was the lead singer of The Divinyls and a wild woman of Australian rock.
Chrissie was known for her school uniform and primal performances. When you went to see the Divinyls live you got the same as you did on a recording, and if you were one of the adoring fans in the front row you would probably get a pot of beer thrown over you!
Hmmmmm… Which song to share with you……. Probably the bands most well known song was “I Touch Myself”, but I can’t tell you which of their songs is my favourite, I have different reasons for liking different ones!
We have one of their albums on tape in the 4WD so even the kids know the words to many of the songs, our next road trip will never be the same. 😦
Only Lonely from 1982.
