When I played "Screaming Targets" for the first time in more than 20 years, I fell in love all over again. Don't know why this band didn't gain widespread popularity, but having them as my own rediscovery secret is kinda cool too. I haven't gotten to the second disc various demos, live performances because I just keep listening to those 10 original cuts over and over. Even if I keep the vinyl, it's nice to have it digitally for the car, iPod, etc. I don't think they ever got any air play in the US of A.

It was a case of demand driving it. It took off like a rocket. We got more work than we could travel away, but the thing took on a life of its own. The thing with the Falcons, we never actually changed our style that much. We just accumulated new ones.

It turned into a stratified thing 'cause we were mixing everything together all the way through. There was no plan. Burt left soon after the release of the debut album, and was replaced by guitarist Tony Faehse ex-Musick Express, Alvin Stardust. He'd only been in Australia a year or so and had more of that big 'rock' sound, a fiery guitar player, and was a great foil for Jeff Burstin who was from a country blues background, so they complemented each other.

Wilson also produced the band's second album, Whip It Out , which was released in November The associated single, " I'm in a Dancing Mood ", peaked at No. To capture the energy and spontaneity of a live performance, the next Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons release was a five-track extended play , Live!!

Loud and Clear , which reached No. Fellow musician, Paul Kelly , recalled their early performances, "[t]hey did house-rocking, roof-raising versions of classic and obscure soul, R'n'B and reggae songs They waved their guitars and saxophones in the air, did everything they could to get over to the crowd. Costello recorded a cover version of " So Young ", which eventually appeared on Out of Our Idiot By now, the songwriting was being looked after by Burstin, Camilleri, and Faehse working together as a trio, and Camilleri was the group's lone front man.

As well, the group had included another musical direction: reggae. Meanwhile, Mushroom was eager to connect with the 'new wave' in England and brought over Peter Solley , an English producer and latter-day Procol Harum member, to produce another Mushroom artist, The Sports. The first single, " Hit and Run ", from the album, Screaming Targets , was pop reggae and reached No. It was a wacky thing and all of a sudden we were away in a different arena".

Camilleri told a hostile audience, which was throwing objects including eggs at the group, "Is it any wonder your parents lost the Vietnam War — you can't even shoot straight! In July , Dexterity was released. The band continued touring internationally, but tensions within the group were increasing and in June , Camilleri pulled Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons off the road.

We could have done it if we'd kept punching, but the band actually disintegrated, basically, looking back, because we were too tired. We should have just taken a year off. But what happened was we were right at the end of the period when, in order to flog a record in the States, you were virtually out promoting the one you had out the year before.

So it was a totally asynchronous situation. We were having to dig into what we viewed as archives when we went out of the country. Customer images. See all customer images.
