Biography

V Capri were a new wave/pop band formed in Perth, Western Australia in 1984, lead vocalist Tod Johnston (Manic D) and guitarist Damian Ward (Flavours, Perfect Strangers), they joined with Lance Karapetcoff on keyboards, Michael O’Brien on bass guitar and Alan Simpson on drums (both of whom were in Harlequin Tears).

The band was popular in Perth and released their debut single, “Only a Movie” on the independent Theatre Label in April 1985, which reached the Perth top 10 but did not reach the top 50 nationally. Success in Perth led to signing with Mushroom Records and the release of further singles but they were unable to transfer their popularity in Perth to the eastern states.

They released six further singles which all reached the top 10 in Perth, with “Haunting Me” and “That’s the Way” peaking at #1 locally. The singles reached the top 100 in the Australian charts between April 1985 and June 1987.

Their debut, and only album, In My World, was released by Mushroom Records in November 1986. It reached number 52 on the Australian charts on the Kent Music Report) in October 1986.

The single “Haunting Me” had international release when used in the Australian television soap opera Neighbours at the end of Kylie Minogue’s final episode, it reached #77 on the UK Singles Chart in 1989.
