Biografia

Hoodoo Gurus (referred to as the Gurus by fans) are an Australian rock band, formed in Sydney in 1981,[1] by the mainstay Dave Faulkner (songwriter, lead singer and guitarist) and later joined by Richard Grossman (bass), Mark Kingsmill (drums), and Brad Shepherd (guitar, vocals, harmonica).[2] Their popularity peaked in the mid to late 1980s with albums Mars Needs Guitars!, Blow Your Cool! and Magnum Cum Louder.[3]

Hoodoo Gurus had a string of acclaimed pop-rock singles including “Leilani” (1982), “Tojo” (1983), “My Girl” (1983), “I Want You Back” (1984), “Bittersweet”, “Like Wow - Wipeout!”, and “What’s My Scene?”.[1] After touring the United States from 1984 onwards they gained popularity on the U.S. college rock circuit[3] with singles “Come Anytime” (1989)[4] reaching #1 and “Miss Freelove ‘69” (1991)[5] reaching #3 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.[6] Gurus’ biggest Australian hit single was their 1987 Top 3 hit song “What’s My Scene?”[7] or, as modified for the National Rugby League 2000s theme, “That’s My Team”.[8][9]

Hoodoo Gurus’ iconic status on the Australian rock scene was acknowledged when they were inducted into the 2007 ARIA Hall of Fame.[10][11] Their induction announcement stated that the Gurus were one of the most “inventive, lyrically smart and exciting” bands from Australia.

    I was lucky enough to be right up front for both Dig It Up shows in Brissie in 2012 and 2013. Saw some amazing music from The 5, 6, 7, 8's, The Sonics, The Flamin' Groovies, Blue Oyster Cult and of course the mighty Gurus played killer sets featuring complete run throughs of Stone Age Romeos and Mars Needs Guitars. It's a damn shame the promoters decided the shows weren't profitable enough to annualize. In my very humble opinion, the Hoodoo Gurus are the best damn band to come outta Oz, and quite frankly, put 'em up against the rest of the world if you wish. Dave Faulkner is the ultimate song writer to me. His songs are loaded with more hooks than a crowded pirate ship and he is passionately in love with 60's girl groups and garage bands in equal measure and he ain't shy about letting his sense of humor creep into the songs, so that makes for some of the most fun music I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. In short, I'm a Guru fan 'til I kick the bucket.

    The Spanish "The Gurus" comment seems unnecessary and more like promotion. I would have removed it but for the reciprocation on the linked page. Any opinion on this?

    So psyched to have gotten the Purity cd without having to pay a huge import fee or wait for months, haunting a record store. Love the 'net.
