Australian band Boom Crash Opera played heavy drum-driven dance-oriented rock, much in the manner of INXS, but with just enough angst and bombast to live up to their name.
Their debut single Great Wall (May 1986) reached #5 on the Australian Chart.
The song was not about the Great Wall of China but was inspired by a news report of cracks in the wall of the Lake Hume Reservoir on the Murray River.
It was Sadkin’s last job, as he died in Nassau in a car accident shortly after completing the album.
Lead vocalist Dale Ryder was born in Madras, India. Guitarist Peter Farnan had previously been the vocalist and guitarist with indie band Serious Young Insects.
