Lifting The Lid On The Rockbrat Treasure Chest: Kings Of The Sun Set List 1989

Image

My rock n roll blood brother and I have long been Kings Of The Sun admirers. Check out some of our previous posts we’ve penned related to this iconic Queensland outfit !

I was rummaging through some of my rock merch this afternoon and discovered this gem ! According to my scrawl on the back of this set-list – it was in fact Kings of The Sun vocalist’s Jeff Hoad’s. It is dated 19th January 1989 – Manly Hotel in Sydney, supported by the Candy Harlots. I am so grateful that I used to have the good sense to gather these items ! The Manly Hotel – which was steeped in rock n roll history – and was situated opposite Manly Wharf – was demolished many many years back, to make way for apartments. KOTS destroyed that shitty live venue that very night ! Both bands (Kings and the Candy Harlots) did a run of dates together at that time and I saw many dates (including one in December WAY out west in a place called Berkshire Park)….It was a great double bill. Any fan of pure rock n roll digs the Kings Of The Sun…check the set list back then !!! ‘Bad Love’ was such a great tune to open with. ‘Drop the Gun’ had not been released yet but was already appearing in the set-list. What I would give to locate a time machine and set the date for that evening. Great memories….

  1. Kings of the Sun……..awesome, Candy Harlots……….even more so!!!!! If you ever get that time machine, brother, book me a seat. How about we travel back and try to locate Dizzy Dollz, used to kick around the same time as Harlots, Rags’n’Riches, Rum Babas.
