Daniel Johns Fronts Boom Tish For Easybeats Tribute

Former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns has assembled his Vivid Live band as Boom Tish for an Easybeats tribute ‘Hello How Are You’.

‘Hello How Are You’ was a 1968 single for The Easybeats. It reached no 34 in Australia and no 20 in the UK.

In a statement Daniel Johns said today, “The Easybeats legacy is undeniable and Harry and George in particular created a blueprint of self-sufficiency for Australian musicians that is more relevant in 2017 than ever.

“I remember seeing a quote from George Young where he said ‘Hello, How Are You’ was considered by many Easybeats fans an unwelcome departure from the band’s typical rock sound…. I feel like I can relate to this statement. This is probably why the track is one of my favourite Easybeats songs and Boom Tish had a lot of fun working on it.

“We could assume that having four friends work on the song in my lounge room, self-producing and recording it in a day and then sending it to the label via text message was a slight departure from the recording process of 50 years ago!”

Rebeat, released 24 November
