Post 154 - Hush - Get Flaired

Hush were finalists in the 1972 Hoadley’s National Battle of the Sounds and were well on their way to being one of the top bands in Australia. 1973 was the beginning of Hush’s intensive national touring, playing more than 200 towns and cities, driving approximately 4,000 kilometres each week. Hush were often on tour for 9 months of the year. The single, “Get the Feeling“, and album Aloud N Live were released in late 1973. “Get the Feeling” was a hit in NSW. In March ’74 the band signed with Wizard Records and their single “Walking” became the first national hit for Hush. Robbie Porter took over production of the band’s recording and the first product of this association was the hit single “Boney Maroney”, an updated version of the Larry Williams song. Also in 1974 they recorded a one sided promo single here for you to download for Colonial Jeans called "Get Flaired" (WP-1)
