I was never a Machinations fan, probably because the lead singer wasn't cute enough when I was a teenager! Shallow, huh?
Not having heard this song for at least 20 years, I rediscovered it on YouTube last week and found myself singing away to it. It seems to have stood the test of time quite well -- it's got an awesome bassline.
For those who are interested, Machinations were from Sydney. According to the Australian Rock Database, they were around between 1980-1989 and reformed briefly in 1997 -- probably to prop up the retirement fund.
