stoneage resissueMusical anniversaries are coming at us coming quicker than a Dee Dee Ramone "1-2-3-4" count-in, but there’s a special place in Australian rock and roll sensibilities for the 40th birthday of the seminal Hoodoo Gurus album “Stoneage Romeos”.

The band has already unveiled vinyl and CD re-issues of the their debut LP and there’s a run of Australian dates in November and December this year on which the Gurus will reprise the long-player from go to whoa.

Originally released in March 1984, “Stoneage Romeos” featured the hits “Leilani”, “Tojo”, “My Girl” and “I Want You Back”. It reached #29 on the Australian Album Chart and went on to win Best Debut Album at the 1984 Countdown Awards. “Stoneage Romeos” has consistently appeared in the Top 10 on almost every Top 50 and Top 100 Australian album lists.

Gurus frontman Dave Faulkner says: “’Stoneage Romeos’ was a pivotal album for us and many of its songs have remained live favourites ever since.

“It’ll be great to play some of those ‘less-travelled’ songs from it on this tour - even though that means we’ll be playing longer sets to fit everything else in as well. Hah! To my mind that’s a win-win situation.”

Since forming in 1981, Hoodoo Gurus boast 10 ARIA Top 20 albums, nine ARIA Top 40 singles and a host of multi-platinum albums.
