Eurogliders

Genre australian, new wave, 80s, pop, 80s australian

The Eurogliders were formed in 1980 in Perth, Western Australia.

The Eurogliders consisted of six members: Grace Knight (vocals), Crispin Akerman (guitars), Bernie Lynch (guitars), Amanda Vincent (keyboards), Geoff Rosenberg (bass), and John Bennetts (drums). As a teenager, Knight used to perform in folk clubs. Searching for a career boost, she traveled to Australia where she met Lynch, a friend of her sister. As Knight developed her vocal style, Lynch began assembling the pieces for a band. In 1982, the Eurogliders released their first album, Pink Suit Blue Day, and had their first hit in 1982 with "Without You". Pink Suit, Blue Day was unusual in that the Eurogliders took the step of travelling to Manila, capital city of the Philippines, to record it. The album was produced by Englishman Len Lubin.

It wasn't until the release of the single "Heaven" from their second album This Island, which reached No.2 on the Australian singles charts in 1984, that the band received national and international attention. This Island was recorded in England and Australia.

That then started off a domino effect of hits, with "We Will Together" (No.7, 1985), "The City of Soul" (No.19, 1985), "Can’t Wait To See You" (No.8, 1985), "Absolutely" (No. 29, 1986) and "Groove" (No. 13, 1988).

The album Absolutely! spent 47 weeks in the Australian charts.

Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch were married briefly in 1985 and despite their marital separation stayed together in the band. In 1986 the Eurogliders signed a sponsorship deal with the Faberge Company. The single "Absolutely" was used in a television commercial for Faberge jeans, and the band also made an appearance in the commercial.

Recording of their fourth album, Groove, commenced while Grace Knight was pregnant and was completed after she gave birth. Grace brought her son into the Sony Recording studio and would sing while nursing. In 1989 unable to achieve their earlier successes the Eurogliders disbanded.

Founding members Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch reformed and in October 2005 released their fifth album called Eurogliders.
