Notes:
– Formed in 1978 as “Dick Smith and The Dole Q”
– On the band’s old website (which has been down since 2005) there was mention about another single called “Body Heat” which was released or just recorded in 1979. However, we couldn’t find any other resources to mention such a release or recording. The same goes with their demos. The following is information from their old website that gives only the title and the number of tracks. The exact year, the tracklistings or any other info is missing and wanted.

Demos recorded in between 1979 to 1982
“Shine” 4 tracks
“Changing Places” 4 tracks
“Motorway Madness” 4 tracks
“Moondolls” 8 tracks
“Photographs” 8 tracks
“Joey” 8 tracks
