Biography

Brisbane, Australia (1978 – 1979, 1984 – 1997, 2007 – present)

Forming in 1978, The Apartments were a four-piece band who played around Brisbane, Australia and released the EP ‘Return Of The Hypnotist’ weeks after the original band split in late 1979. The EP was released by the Able Label, which was formed by Damien Nelson and Grant McLennan.

The first recognised line-up of the group featured Peter Milton Walsh (vocals, guitar), Michael O’Connell (guitar, vocals), Peter Martin (drums) and Peter Whitby (bass). The only known member to carry on a musical career (aside from Walsh) was O’Connell, who joined Zero with future Go-Betweens members Lindy Morrison and John Willsteed and played in a number of other bands in Brisbane and Sydney in the 1980’s.

After the demise of the first line-up, Walsh formed Out Of Nowhere in Brisbane - a band which featured a unique clarinet and saxophone horn section and no bass player. One of the band’s line-ups featured Peter Milton Walsh (vocals, guitar), Graham Hutchinson (drums), Gary Warner (saxophone) and Tony Forde (clarinet). Other members included Cecily Childs (keyboards), Tony Childs (bass), Jeffrey Wegener (drums) and Joe Borkowski (bass).

A split cassette recording with Pink & Blue was released in 1981, featuring one song, ‘The Arrangements’ which was the basis of ‘End Of Some Fear’ a song which appeared on the 1994 Apartments album ‘A Life Full Of Farewells’.

Moving to Sydney in 1981, the band released a single on the Prince Melon label ‘Remember, Remember/No Resistance’, featuring the drumming of Jeffrey Wegener who concurrently performed with Laughing Clowns at that time.
