No Lies by Noiseworks
This episode has some grabs from the song No Lies by Sydney band Noiseworks. Noiseworks was one of our favourite bands when we were in our formative years (think late 80’s). Each show we will feature a grab from a favourite song. The criteria for the song selection is this:
Must be an Australian band, and preferably from Sydney
Must be from the 1980’s
Must be a band we have seen live
This song was their first single from their self titled album, released in 1987.
