Geesus... remember the tune as soon as I heard it.... but don't reckon I've ever seen that clip... which has it's own bit of history according to the attached I've lifted from Wikipedia


In 1980 the band obtained gold record status in Australia for their hit single “Life at the Outpost”. The video for "Life at the Outpost" was generated by their distributing record company in Australia (Polygram/Mercury), and is regarded as a misrepresentation of the band. No members of the Skatt Bros. appeared in the video. The Skatt Bros. were real musicians who wrote the songs, played the instruments, performed the vocals and co-produced their recordings.

I'm no Keith Urban fan but he smashes this Bee Gees cover of 'To Love Somebody' out of the park at the Bee Gees tribute concert a few years back. Such a great rendition.

I can't understand why they didn't like being represented as a gay tribute band to the Cowboy in the Village People

You should see their clip from their other song Walk The Night, it’s from Al Pacinos Cruising.

Not sure if this has been posted before but I really love The Models I Hear Motion from around that time, the James Freud clip reminded me of it.


I always liked Grace Jones song Walking in the Rain... Only found it recently the original was by the Australian band Flash and the Pan (ex Easybeats Harry Vanda and George Young, older brother of Angus)


Grace Jones version

I like the Models song too Ant. Used to be a bit frustrating seeing Sean and James sharing the vocals spot.

My favourite Grace Jones is still Slave to the Rhythm.

The Boss & Eddie Vedder covering ACDC's Highway to Hell on tour in Australia back in 2014.
What's not to love?

Tom Morello on guitar too. They covered Dont Change at that show and Bruce played the entire Born In the Usa album.

Some fabulous guitarists demo their own styles.
Tom Morello really gets into it.
Brad Paisley really has dancing fingers.
I watch this multiple times and just in awe of the talent.

The Stones have cut Brown Sugar from their playlist as it’s been deemed racist.
