Former Finch singer and guitarist Owen Orford and Bob Spencer will perform together for the first time in over 40 years this weekend.
Bob will perform for The Australian Guitar Legends Festival in Coolangatta with Kevin Borich, Tim Gaze and Dale Pritchard.
Bob spilled the beans on Facebook saying “Eons years ago, I was in a band with a very, very good singer. This coming Saturday, Owen Orford and I will perform a few songs together, for the first time in 42 years.”
Bob and Owen founded Finch in Sydney in 1973. Their recording career kicked off a year later with three songs on the soundtrack to the surf movie ‘Drouyn’.
Finch’s debut album ‘Thunderbird’ was released in 1976. The second album ‘Nothing To Hide’ gave them their first hit song ‘Where Were You’ (#25).
In 1978 Finch signed to Portrait Records in the USA. They had to change their name to Contraband after a Dutch band called Finch were already using the name internationally. The ‘Contraband’ album was released in 1979. The band broke up a year later.
