Supports

Nat Col & the Kings plus Copal Deep


Originally a five-piece band formed in Melbourne in 1985, Australian rock band Boom Crash Opera, like many before them, got their grounding from the pub rock circuit. Their striking debut blended the muscular rock of "Listen Like Thieves"-period INXS with an almost English melodic richness not dissimilar to Tears for Fears. Power vocalist Dale Ryder was backed by trademark chant style vocals from the other band members. Boom Crash Opera are best known for their Hits Singles; Onion Skin  Get out of the House  Hands up in the Air , Dancing in the Storm, Great Wall, Bettadaze and The Best Thing.  In 2008, The Best Thing was remixed by Hook n Sling (Sydney DJ outfit) which went to number 1 in the Australian Club Charts.

Biography

Boom Crash Opera were quickly signed to WEA records Australia and in 1986 released their debut single "Great Wall" (produced by Steve Brown). The single reached number 5 on the ARIA National charts. Their self titled debut album, released in 1987, (Produced by Alex Sadkin) went Gold and also featured the follow up singles "Hands Up In The Air" (produced by Steve Brown), "City Flat" and "Her Charity".

 

Following on from the success of their debut in 1989 they released the top 10 single "Onion Skin" from what would become their most successful album These Here Are Crazy Times (produced by Pete Smith and Richard Pleasance, mixed by Nick Launay). These Here Are Crazy Times spent more than 12 months in the Australian National Top 40 and achieved double platinum sales. "Onion Skin" was followed by the top 20 singles "Get Out Of The House", "Best Thing", "Dancing In The Storm" and "Talk About It".

 

In 1990 they released Look! Listen!!. The album featured remixed versions of songs from their first two albums plus two new songs.

In 1992 they travelled to Los Angeles and began work on the follow up to These Here Are Crazy Times. Soon after they began writing and recording Pleasance made the decision to leave the band. He was temporarily replaced by Dorian West.

 

The band returned from L.A. and Ian Tilley joined as the permanent replacement for Pleasance. In 1993 they released the single "Bettadaze". It was followed by their third album, the L.A. recorded Fabulous Beast (Produced by Don Gehman and Keith Forsey). "Bettadaze" was followed by the singles "In The Morning" and "This Isn't Love"

 

In 2008 the boys have hit the live circuit again performing at festivals and live venues Australia wide, captivating audiences at each and every show, delivering their shows with the presence and enthusiasm like it is still 1986. Dont miss their next show.
