VIDEO: The Easybeats - Friday On My Mind

by My Beat Club on YouTube:

You may think that British Invasion or Beat Music were typically British phenomena? No, they weren't ... Actually Australia got their own Beatlemania - here called "Easyfever" as a result of The Easybeats!

The Easybeats were the greatest Australian pop band in the 60s and scored the first international hit for an Australian band with the song "Friday On my Mind".

Later the two guitarists, George Young and Harry Vanda, became a famous songwriter and producer duo. Their work includes the first seven albums of AC/DC - featuring George's younger brothers Angus and Malcolm Young!

And don't forget their 80s pop group Flash & the Pan with the hits "Early Morning Wake Up Call" an "Midnight Man".
