Hoodoo Gurus To Perform Debut Album Stoneage Romeos In Full

Hoodoo Gurus will mark the 40th anniversary of the release of their debut album ‘Stoneage Romeos’ by performing the album in full on the Back To The Stoneage tour of 2024.

Dave Faulkner said, “‘Stoneage Romeos’ was a pivotal album for us and many of its songs have remained live favourites ever since. It’ll be great to play some of those “less-travelled” songs from it on this tour – even though that means we’ll be playing longer sets to fit everything else in as well. Hah! To my mind that’s a win-win situation.”

‘Stoneage Romeos’ was released in Match 1984. It gave the band four songs that would forever become central to a setlist, the singles ‘Leilani’, ‘Tojo’, ‘My Girl’ and ‘I Want You Back’.

While ‘Stoneage Romeos’ was considered Garage Rock or Cowpunk at the time, it did earn Hoodoo Gurus the Best Album Award at the 1984 Countdown Awards and crept into the Top 40 singles chart with ‘My Girl’ at no. 35.

The band went on to have two Top 20 singles ‘Bitterseet’ and ‘Like Wow – Wipeout’ with the second album ‘Mars Needs Guitars’ and their first Top 10 single with ‘’What’s My Scene’ off the third album ‘Blow Your Cool’ (no 3, 1987).
