The story of Eric Weideman and his ex–band 1927 is one of the most intriguing in recent Australian pop history. In 1988, the group was a truly local phenomenon, selling more than 350,000 copies of their debut album “…ish”.

Drawn inexorably into the vortex of mass success, 1927 swiftly lost control, playing out a familiar rock tune: the group’s second album, The Other Side, failed to match the sales of its predecessor and 1927 gradually slipped from view even as it began to buckle under the strain of touring.

Today, Eric Weideman lives on the Gold Coast and maintains a solo career.

Update - Eric is living in Perth maintaining a solo career and does reform 1927 every now and then. If you want to hear one of his recent ventures listen to a track called ‘pictures’ Eric did the second verse and some harmonies. There is a video there too

    Great Band. I love them. 1927 is a cool Band Name as well. They kinda remind me of Silent Running a bit.

    @Ryncewynd: That's a big call - vastly better than Cold Chisel? I like them both, for different reasons. Chisel had that raw feel (even in their studio albums) that 1927 never did, and Ian Moss & Don Walker were no less brilliant in their own right than Garry Frost. 1927 appealed to a much wider audience with their smooth production & songwriting skills, and Eric Weideman certainly had a much more listenable voice than Jim Barnes.

    Saw them on "The Other Side" tour at Shelleys when I lived in the Wollongong area, a great evening and vastly better than some aussie legends i.e Cold Chisel, Skyhooks etc

    These guys were way underrated and could have been so much more. Garry Frost was an awesome guitarist.
