Music from Australia and New Zealand in the year 1984:
Takeaways' promo-video for the hit single 'Sweet & Sour' taken from the 1984 album 'Sweet & Sour' - soundtrack album to the popular ABC-TV series of same name.
Note: The Takeaways were a fictitious band that was the centre of an ABC-TV series tiled 'Sweet & Sour'; a tale about a young band seeking fame and fortune in the music industry. The Takeaways did not play their own instruments on this track, but instead left the music to professional musicians. The vocals on this track is performed by Deborah Conway of Do Re Mi. The song was written by the brilliant Kiwi songwriter Sharon O'Neill. The show was created by Tim Gooding and Johanna Pigott (ex-XL Capris/Scribble).
Incidently, David Reyne (who plays Martin Kabel on guitar) was once a member of Australian Crawl with brother James.
