ONLY ONE COPY LEFT! THIS GREAT ALBUM IS BEING DELETED TO MAKE WAY FOR NEW STUFF... Ross Wilson is probably the only person in Australian rock music who can't make a comeback simply because he's never been away. In a career that spans over 30 years Ross remains one of Australia's most respected artists. From Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock, as a solo artist, or as songwriter of A-grade classics such as 'Eagle Rock' & 'A Touch of Paradise', or producer of the legendary Skyhooks, Jo Jo Zep, & The Screaming Jets, Ross's involvement with success has continued unabated. Daddy Cool exploded out of the 70's playing rootsy 50's sounds. Mondo Rock surfed the scene from the mid 70's to the late 80's. As a solo performer and major songwriter he continued to achieve success & make his mark in the 90's with his songs being recorded by artists as diverse as Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, DEF-FX, Custard, Jennifer Rush, You Am I, Leslie Avril, Uncle Bill, Renee Geyer, Christine Anu, Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and The Wiggles!!! 2001 saw Ross back on the front line as the result of a decision to return to regular live performing & recording. First release was 'Go Bongo Go Wild!', exploring blues based material from swinging re-bop to doowop, traditional R&B to reggae - 'it all sounds the same to me / just beautiful music / whoo-oo-whee' - which gathered unanimous rave reviews. Later in the year came a 30 track x 35 year career retrospective 'Now Listen! The Best Of Ross Wilson', winner of the Rhythms magazine Readers Poll 2001 'Best Compilation or Box Set' (runner up Buffalo Springfield) & it's own collection of 4 star reviews. Now Listen! is also available at CD Baby. RW History Ross Wilson has come a long way since 1964 when he fronted The Pink Finks, a schoolboy R&B band. They recorded 'Louie Louie' a bona fide garage record and possibly Australia's first independent single. The disc charted in Melbourne leading to a record deal & 3 more singles being released, while he was still at school! In 1966 he formed The Party Machine & honed his emerging songwriting skills. The band published a lyric book in 1968 which was seized by the Vice Squad, deemed as obscene, & burned!! It was time to leave home. Ross relocated to England at the invitation of Procession, Australia's avant-garde rock pioneers. Returning to Australia in late 1969 he formed Sons Of The Vegetal Mother from which a splinter group, Daddy Cool, emerged in 1970. Summer 70/71 saw DC take Melbourne by storm via their TF Much Ballroom performances. Appearances at outdoor rock festivals sealed their reputation nationally. In early 1971 Daddy Cool released Australia's all-time champion #1 Rock Anthem 'Eagle Rock'. By the end of the year the group had set new sales records in this country, dominating the charts & concert scene, and became the first Australian band to make a real impact on the US touring circuit. From 1974-76 Ross produced 3 albums for Skyhooks and again set new sales records & redefined standards and directions for a vigorous and expanding domestic music scene. In 1976 the soundtrack for Australia's first Rock Movie 'OZ' included his debut solo recording, 'Living In The Land Of Oz', championing aboriginal land rights. At this time he also produced Jo Jo Zep's first two albums & early recordings for The Sports. In 1977 Mondo Rock was formed. Their 2nd album 'Chemistry' became one of the largest selling albums of 1980/81, yielding the hits 'Cool World', 'State of the Heart', 'Chemistry' & 'Summer of '81'. Mondo Rock continued to produce hits with 'No Time', 'Come Said The Boy' and 'Primitive Love Rites', until Ross decided to pursue a solo career, releasing the 1989 album 'Dark Side Of The Man' & the hit single 'Bed Of Nails'. After 20 years of non-stop touring Ross took a few years off to concentrate more on writing than performing. Some were lucky enough to catch his recreational power-funk outfit RAW, 1991-93. In 1997 he toured with 'The Lounge Lizards', a collaboration with The Angels & Angry Anderson. He has done his country thing at The Tamwo
