Waiting For That Train/ More Than Enough/Do You Want My Love/Make A Move/Hold Me In Your Arms
Southern Sons was an Australian band, originally billed as The State were best known in Australia in the early 90's for their hits 'Heart In Danger' and 'Hold Me In Your Arms'. The four members of State Virgil Donati (Drums) Phil Buckle (Guitar) Geoff Cain (Bass) and Peter Bowman (Guitar) added Jack Jones (Guitar Vocal) in 1990.
Southern Sons was created as a direct result of songwriter Phil Buckle's collaboration on six of the twelve songs on John Farnham's 'Chain Reaction' album (1990). Phil's group The State was signed to Farnham manager Glenn Wheatley's Wheatley Brothers records, and had released one album. Hearing John's treatment of his songs, Phil Buckley wanted to replace himself as lead vocalist and recruited John Farnham sound-a-like singer/guitarist Jack Jones, who had auditioned for the band previously but was considered too young.
The new group changed its name to Southern Sons and made its public debut as support act for John's 'Chain Reaction Tour', Phil and Jack also having played on the album, doing double duty as members of John's backing band. 1990 saw the release of their debut album, 'Southern Sons' (which spawned three top ten hit singles) and a five-track EP, 'Train Tracks" containing four live tracks, released to coincide with Phil and Jack's return to Southern Sons duties after a European tour with Farnham.
Their second album in 1992, 'Nothing But the Truth', came with the departure of guitarist Peter Bowman. After two singles, including "You Were There' one of three Phil Buckle songs in the Australian Ballet production of 'Beauty and the Beast', 'Nothing But the Truth' was re-released, with different cover artwork featuring a new look Jack Jones, to include the single 'Silent Witness'. Southern Sons third and final album, 'Zone', was released in 1995, self-produced with former member Peter Bowman. Its lead single, 'Don't Tell Me', featured vocals from Men At Work's Colin Hay.
