Between 1977 and 2012, INXS went from touring the Australian pub scene to conquering the world with their unique hybrid of rock, pop and funk. Despite soaking up a vast number of influences along the way, INXS transcended all music scenes, retaining their individuality which helped them sell 95 million albums across the world. Two things came to define INXS globally; the hit singles from Kick that have seeped into popular culture and the life and loves of their electric frontman, Michael Hutchence. Books, documentaries and even a TV biopic have all been written and produced about the band and Michael’s life but one thing seems to be missing from these, a true deep dive into the most important aspect of INXS’ career, the music. This is the first book that looks at every INXS track and the stories and facts behind them. From their early demos to international breakthrough albums Shabooh Shoobah and The Swing via the phenomenal Kick and the creative rebirth of Welcome To Wherever You Are, all the way through to the post-Hutchence celebration Original Sin, every album track and B-side is covered here. AUTHOR: Ever since he wore out the first Now That’s What I Call Music LP at the age of 4, Manny Grillo has had a love for music. It was Christmas 1988 when he received a copy of the ‘Need You Tonight’ 7 that his love for INXS began. That record kicked off a four-decade journey which has seen him become a contributor to the wonderful INXS: Access All Areas podcast and culminates in the release of his first book – a lifelong ambition. Manny lives in Yorkshire in the UK. The other loves of his life are his wife, Kim, and children Alicia, Luca, Jude and Heidi.
