~ A heartfelt follow-up for a band designed to go nowhere ~
They were science project put together by the lead singer who never intended them to last more than an album or so. Most of the band later resurfaced as the house band on the Rockstar TV shows that were the reality competitions for lead singers for INXS and Rockstar Supernova.
The hit you know is You Get What You Give. The song you don’t is this one, their follow-up single that made a minor dent in the charts but is utterly forgotten these days whenever people pull out lists of 90s one hit wonders.
