hello sailor

the quintessential kiwi cock-rock band of the late 70s and early 80s (while dragon were spending most of their time causing trouble across the tasman). hello sailor were graham brazier and dave mcartney at the centre, with harry lyon, tony mcmaster, graeme turner, andy macdonald, lisle kinney, richy ball and phillip mills flowing in and out of the line-up over their susequent original and reunited line-ups (they reformed to great success in the mid 80s). this is brash, over-the-top indulgent pop, kiwi-style.
