evolved from the Realm in the early 70's and lasted for a number of years.
They were a crazy bunch and were idolised by their loyal fans due to their
many floorshows and costume changes. Mostly we remember them for bringing

for over 12 months. Seeing them in Dessert Boots, Pink Shoelaces, Pinstripe
Suits, Red Socks and that song "Alley Oop" will never be forgotten. One
of the highlights of their career was their Tours to Exmouth, Carnarvon,
Albany and on to the Eastern States. This started at Kalgoorlie en route
to Adelaide where they set many attendance records. The Adelaide Hotel,
Old Lions, Findon Hotel saw their live on stage antics, before moving onto
Melbourne featured at South Side 6, Waltzing Matilda and others. They even
appeared at the George Hotel, St. Kilda and in Geelong. Recordings for Festival
at Armstrong Studios produced two original rock songs "Crazy Col" and "Quiet
Alright With Me".
