Preview: Kids In Dust AKA Sunnyboys

@ Enmore Theatre, Sydney, 22 April 2012

Sunnyboys are an Australian post-punk, power pop band formed in Sydney in 1980. Fronted by singer-songwriter, guitarist Jeremy Oxley, the band breathed some freshness and vitality into the divergent Sydney scene. Their first two albums, Sunnyboys and Individuals both charted into the Top 30 of the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart.

The Oxley brothers, Jeremy and Peter, and Bill Bilson hailed from the northern New South Wales town of Kingscliff where they played in a garage band called Wooden Horse, while Richard Burgman (Kamikaze Kids) came from Wagga Wagga. The four met in Sydney in 1979, forming the Sunnyboys. The band's name was based on an orange flavoured frozen ice treat of the same name. According to Richard Burgman the band chose the name because it represented ‘bright, happy, young fun’.

In April 2012 the band reformed to play at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. Billed as Kids in Dust, the band's original line-up of singer-guitarist Jeremy Oxley, his brother and bassist Peter Oxley, drummer Bill Bilson and guitarist Richard Burgman played at the Hoodoo Gurus' 30th anniversary national invitational Dig It Up! tour for the first time since 1984.
