Beauty And Danger/Calling Low/Laugh In The Wind/The Fires Don't Die/May You Never
First meeting in the band Wild Science, guitarist Craig Pilkington, and singer Anna Burley left the band as it moved towards a hard rock sound. They teamed up as the Killjoys where their pop-folk tendencies found a suitable outlet. Releasing their first EP in 1989, Audrey (which produced the single "Fall Around Me"), the Killjoys then contributed a cover of the Seekers' "Another You" to the various artists tribute album, Used and Recovered (1990).
Their debut album, Ruby, won the 1990 Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) Award for Best Independent Release and the band signed a new deal with MXL. Craigie-Smith was replaced by Daniel Palamara who was in turn replaced by Michael Hohnen before the band released a new EP, Spin, in November 1991. The Killjoys then traveled to the U.K. to record their second album, A Million Suns, with producer Craig Leon (Ramones, Pogues, Bangles), which was released in March 1993. It spawned the singles "Beauty + Danger" (February 1993) and "I Lied" (June 1993).
Dave Foley replaced Will Larsen on drums in 1993 before the band released the EP "Love and Uncertainty" in May 1994. Carolyn Schwerkolt left the band in 1995, Dave Nelson replaced Michael Hohnen, and Gary Aspinall (guitar, vocals) joined the group. The Killjoys contributed a cover of Cold Chisel's "Flame Trees" to the various artists' compilation Earth Music in June 1994, and the CD single "Come Around" followed in October 1995. Another CD single, "Stupid Waste," was released in March 1996, followed by their next single, "Save Me," in November 1997. Another album, Sun Bright Deep, appeared in March 1998 and contained the singles "Save Me" (re-released) and "The Better It Gets" (September 1998).

When Tony Worsley bust into the Australian recording industry in the early 60’s his success was instantaneous. In 1964, he joined forces with the established combo “The Blue Jays” and this proved to be a winning combination. Hit after hit followed including “Missing You”, “Raining In My Heart”, “Knocking On Wood” as well as the Gold single “Velvet Waters” which sold over 50,000 copies alone in 1965. In that same year, Tony toured nationally with the Kinks, Manfred Mann and the Honeycombs, playing to packed houses of screaming fans. In a trip to Hobart in 1965, Tony wowed 90,000 devoted fans who wouldn’t let him leave. Encore after encore was performed before the fans were finally satisfied! Other tours throughout the country followed in rapid succession where he shared the stage with such greats as the Dave Clark Five, The Seekers, Johnny O’Keefe and John Farnham.
Luv Your Life/The Greatest View (On Rove [Live])/Without You (On Rove [Live])/Rove [Live] Interview With Daniel Johns
"Luv Your Life" is the third single by Australian rock band Silverchair from their fourth album Diorama, which was released in 2002. The song was released as a single and a video was made in which the band was portrayed as animated characters. This is mostly because Daniel Johns was incapacitated by his reactive arthritis, and the band needed to release another song to prevent commercial momentum for the album to come to a complete halt.
When watching the video, one can see that Chris and Ben's animated characters seem to be more fluid and realistic than Daniel's. This may be due to Chris and Ben doing some sort of motion capture for the making of the video. Chris stated that this song is his favourite off the album. "Luv Your Life" was dedicated by Johns to "all my ladies", and was written on piano and featured an orchestral arrangement by Van Dyke Parks. The single peaked at number 20 on the Australian Recording Industry Association Singles Chart.
