Pseudo Echo Goes To Funkytown


Pseudo Echo are an Australian new wave band formed in 1982 in Melbourne.  In the 1980s, Pseudo Echo had many Australian top 20 hits like “Love an Adventure”, “Living in a Dream” and their cover of “Funky Town”, which peaked at No. 1 in 1986. In 1987, it reached No. 1 in Canada and New Zealand, No. 6 in United States and No. 8 in United Kingdom.

Rock music historian Ian McFarlane, stated they “combined flash clothes, blow-wave hairstyles, youthful exuberance and accessible synth-pop to arrive at a winning combination … and found a ready-made audience among teenagers who fawned on the band’s every move”.
