Biography

Formed in Melbourne in late 77, the Young Charlatans played only a dozen gigs in their hometown and in Sydney. The band’s line-up featured singer/guitarists Rowland S Howard and Ollie Olsen; drummer Jeffrey Wegener and bassist Janine Hall. The only existing recordings were demos made by Bruce Milne for a future single on his Au Go-Go label. The band soon dissolved before this could take place, as Howard soon joined the Boys Next Door. Olsen meanwhile went on to form the influential Whirlywird, Wegener went on to join Laughing Clowns, while Hall joined Chris Bailey’s incarnation of the Saints upon his return to Australia in 1980. Their signature song (and only commerically-available recording) ‘Shivers’ became a Boys Next Door single, and has been compiled on Clinton Walker’s Inner City Sound CD, available through Laughing Outlaw Records.
