Introverts, The

introverts_009

Originally formed from the ashes of an outfit called The Fine Tuners – around a line-up of Greg Noyes (vocals), Chris Vaughan (guitar), Trevor Conomy (bass) and Kris Svendsen (drums) – The Introverts held a Tuesday night residency at Sydney’s iconic Sussex Hotel for much of 1980 but fell apart due to internal dissent and managerial hassles.

Greg Noyes and Chris Vaughan played for a while as Pop Hearts before re-forming The Introverts in 1982 with new members Keith Claringbold (ex-The Sets) on bass (Trevor Conomy switched to guitar) and Dave Barber on drums.

The band added a keyboard player, John Hoey, but more internal fighting eventually saw the departure of Conomy and Hoey, who would eventually join Died Pretty.

The band reverted to a four-piece with the addition of Steve Piltz on guitar. This line-up recorded the band’s only single, Girl On Page Three (1983), but despite the record doing well on the Sydney indie chart, the band still experienced management struggles and called it a day following their single launch.

The group re-formed their 1982 incarnation in 2001 for a handful of shows.
