Post 663 - The Tin Lids - Hey Rudolph!

Tin Lids is rhyming slang for "the kids", as the band members are all children of Scottish-born Australian, Jimmy Barnes, and his Thai-born wife, Jane Mahoney: Eliza-Jane Barnes (born 1984), Elly-May Barnes (born 1989), Jackie Barnes (born 1986) and Mahalia Barnes (born 1982). The group were in the children's choir as part of the back-up singers on their father's track, "When Your Love Is Gone", from his solo album, “Two Fires”. Their maternal uncle is Mark Lizotte, who also performs as Diesel or Johnny Diesel.  The Tin Lids released their first album in November 1991 as a collection of Christmas carols, ‘Hey Rudolph!’ (D26071)’ released on Mushroom Records and peaked at No. 6 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Most of the instrumentation was supplied by David Froggatt, the album's producer and arranger; it was recorded at Barnes' Freight Train Studios, Sydney. The album provided the single, "Christmas Day", which reached No. 40 on the ARIA Singles Chart.Flac
