THE OLYMPIC SIDEBURNS - Dixie Truck Stop !

THE OLYMPIC SIDEBURNS Dixie Truck Stop ! cd/lp 1987
I Can See / What's Going On / I Will Wait / Underworld / Badlands / Pay It Back / Teenage Girl / Know / Blue Sky.
Produced By F. Taviaux.
The Olympic Sideburns: P. "Jex" Byron: vocals / D."Georges" Spencer: guitar / M. Frawley: guitar / P. Newman Bryant: bass / C. McAlpine: drums + A. Iden: additional vocals.

"...Towards the end of 1985, Calum McAlpine (ex-Chosen Few, Rah Rah the Flag) replaced Brophy, which resulted in the most stable line-up of the band's history. In August 1987, Olympic Sideburns signed to Mushroom's Doc/White subsidiary label. The band issued a new album "Dixie Truck Stop!" (September), and single, "Here Comes the Rain"/"Sorrento",

"Underworld"(February 1988). The album boasted a more authentic Rolling Stones/Creedence Clearwater Revival sound as opposed to the previous punk/psychedelic/ shockabilly hybrid. Alan Brooker (ex-Paul Kelly and the Dots, Little Murders, Zimmermen) replaced long-standing bass player Bryant. Olympic Sideburns continued to play to a cult following on the Melbourne scene, but split up at the end of 1988. M. Frawley later formed Maurice Frawley and the Working Class Ringos (1993 to 2000) and then M. Frawley and the Yard Hands (2006). In January 2009, he died at Rochester Hospital (R.I.P.)"
