Post 342 - Jon English, Trevor White & The Superstar Band - Laid Back In Anger / Laughing At The Guru

Trevor White was born in Essex, England. He sang and played piano with the group Sounds Incorporated, and moved to Australia when the group broke up. He played Jesus in the 1972 Sydney production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Jon English immigrated to Australia with his parents in 1961. He was an early vocalist and rhythm guitarist for Sebastian Hardie but left to take on the role of Judas Iscariot in the Australian version of the stage musical Jesus Christ Superstar from May 1972. In 1976, Jon performed a duet with fellow Superstar Trevor White, Here for you to download is the single for Polydor Records "Laid Back in Anger" b/w "Laughing At The Guru" (2079 096). The A side was written by Iain Sutherland of Sutherland Brothers fame and the B side penned by Jon came from the "Hollywood Seven" LP. Unfortunately the single did not have major chart success, but I think it is quite a good song just the same.
