Post 100 - Supernaut - Lightning

Formed in 1974 in Perth, W.A. Supernaut originally named Moby Dick had a short but successful career which yielded two straight top twenty singles and a best selling L.P. that sold over 50,000 copies. Supernaut were signed up by Polydor after a recommendation from "Molly" Meldrum who produced their debut album and burst on to the Australian charts with a number one hit in July, 1976 with "I Like It Both Ways". A follow up hit came in November, '76 with "Too Hot To Touch", which reached number 19, from their self-titled album. In 1978 Supernaut relocated to Sydney and shortened their name and hair and changed their attitude. They opted for punk garage style and became The Nauts. They released an album produced by Robie Porter in 1978. The album was widely acclaimed by critics but sales weren't forthcoming and they disbanded in 1980. For you to download is the B side of their 1976 #14 nationally "I Like It Both Ways" "Lightning" (2079 082). And for an extended version of Supernaut’s “The Kids Are Out Tonight” visit:
