Steve Lucas Puts Together New X To Celebrate 40th Anniversary

Steve Lucas has rounded up Doug Falconer of Hunters & Collectors and Kim Volkman of Love Addicts for a brand new X line-up to celebrate 40 years since the start of the band.

X formed in Sydney in 1977 with Lucas and band featuring Ian Rilen, Ian Krahe and Steve Cafiero. Krahe died before X recorded their first album ’X-Aspirations’ and from then on remained a three-piece.

‘Aspirations’ was recorded in 1979 and released in 1980. They split shortly after the release of the album.

When the band reformed in the mid-80s to record a second album ‘At Home With You’ drummer Cafiero was replaced by Cathy Green. Steve Cafiero has also since passed away.

A third album ‘X and More’ was released in 1989. The album was produced by Lobby Loyde.
