Little did anyone realize back in 1978 that The Radiators would still be together in 2016, still hugely popular and still producing quality music with no signs of slowing down.
Travelling thousands upon thousands of kilometres up, down and across the length and breadth of this vast country, The Radiators have carved a niche in the annals of Aussie Rock history. They have headlined and shared the stage with other great Aussie acts such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, Dragon and INXS. 2004 saw the release of The Radiators’ 25th Anniversary Album, a compilation of their most popular singles. While this Album sold well and had chart success,the boys were keen to try something new.
In 2008 their controversial single “Gimme Head” was re-recorded and remixed by The Cut in Sydney, and picked up by Melbourne Recording Company, Vicious. The single debuted at No. 25 on the ARIA Club Charts, quickly climbing to No. 9 in the first 5 days. The new “Gimme Head” was snapped up by Australian Fashion Week and featured on their television advertisements shown on Channel 10.
Despite the rigors of touring and the passing of years the spark and energy of The Radiators has not diminished. They continue to do what they do best – tour extensively, play an average of 150 times per year and delight the legions of fans both young and old who still flock to grab a slice of living Aussie Rock history, rocking the night away to the great catchy songs and classic hits that have made The Radiators a household name in Australia.
Not bad for four boys from humble beginnings with big dreams and one wonders what this powerhouse band is capable of producing next.
THE RADIATORS – 30+ years old and still going strong!
