The 40th anniversary of Skyhooks will be marked with a 3-disc collectors edition featuring the first two albums, additional tracks and a bonus live disc.

‘Don’t You Believe What You’ve Seen Or You’ve Heard’ will featured expanded versions of ‘Living In The 70s’ and ‘Ego Is Not A Dirty Word’ and previously unreleased live Skyhooks tracks from 1974 and 1975.

‘Living In The 70s’ had a cultural effect in Australia not unlike The Beatles before them and Nirvana later. For the first time an Australian act was singing about Australian places reflecting real life from the streets.

Skyhooks were a totally unique band at the time.

‘Don’t You Believe What You’ve Seen Or You’re Heard’ was developed by Warner Music’s in-house archival guru Dave Laing and every step of the process ticked off by Skyhooks founder Greg Macainsh.

‘Don’t You Believe What You’ve Seen Or You’re Heard’ is out October 30 on Festival through Warner Music Australia.
