Melbourne band Kids In The Kitchen reached #10 on the Australian national charts with their debut single, Change In Mood, in November 1983.
A second single, Bitter Desire (May 1984), reached #17 in May 1984, after which Greg Dorman and Greg Woodhead quit the band and were replaced by Claude Carranza (guitar) and Alistair Coia (keyboards).
The first single released with the new line-up was Something That You Said, which provided another Top 20 hit in May 1985, followed by a belated debut album, Shine, which was a big seller nationally and topped the Melbourne charts.
Although the title track only reached #40 when lifted as a single, the next single release, Current Stand, became the band’s signature song and peaked at #12 in Australia.
The group had one of the shortest American tours ever, when on a promotional visit in 1986. The band performed just one show, at New York’s famous Cat Club.
A second LP, Terrain, was released in 1987 with several accompanying singles, but the band could not repeat the success of their debut. They broke up the following year.
