...here's the original Women In Uniform, sung by legendary Aussie group Skyhooks.

I was lucky enough to see them when they reformed for Rocktober '87 (I think) before the lead singer Shirley Straughan died in a helicopter accident.

As I was growing up a young kid, the clear order of my favorite bands went...

ABBA

Skyhooks

Kiss

Twisted Sister

Iron Maiden

 

Gradually got heavier I guess :)

..this Living in the 70s and Horror Movie are classics. A few other tracks like Ego, You only like me coz I'm good in bed are pretty good. Hey, I even lived in Balwyn for a while.

Shirl came into our grade 3 classroom as we built a frog pond and planted heaps of trees as part if his Shirl's Neighborhood TV show.

Did Norm the kangaroo or Claude the crow come with Shirl?

There a interesting release coming out soon by Skyhooks.

I remember seeing Skyhooks opening for AC/DC, on AC/DC's home coming after visiting England for first time.
