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
  • underrated in lastfm
  • Only 1711 listeners? WTF? And no preview songs... ¬¬
  • These guys were way underrated and could have been so much more. Garry Frost was an awesome guitarist.
  • such a shame,this band deserve more credit. they were top dollar
