Australian band Mondo Rock was formed in November 1976 by singer-songwriter, Ross Wilson (ex-Daddy Cool), guitarist Peter Laffy, keyboard player Greg Cook (ex-Cam-Pact), bassist Mike Clarke and drummer Bob Bickerton.
Personnel turnover in the band (except for Wilson) was frequent and it wasn’t until the addition of guitarist Eric McCusker – who wrote many of the band’s hits – in 1980 that the band began to hit the national charts with singles such as State of the Heart (1980), Cool World (1981), No Time (1982) and Come Said The Boy (1983).
Mondo Rock disbanded in 1991, although they periodically appeared at reunion concerts, and reformed on a more-or-less continuing basis in 2014.
