Song of the day: Street Corner Jack - "Wrong With You"
Here's long-defunct Adelaide band Street Corner Jack with "Wrong With You" (1980):
I didn't notice it at the time, but hearing the song again after all these years, those verses sure do remind me of early Split Enz, especially:
Split Enz - "Maybe" (1975)
But back to "Wrong With You".
Apart from when it was released as a single, "Wrong With You" appeared on a 1980 compilation of Adelaide music produced by a local radio station. The album was* called 5AN Patchwork. I don't quite know why it was subtitled Australian Rock Collection, because as far as I remember they were all Adelaide bands.
Unfortunately, there isn't a better transfer of "Wrong With You" because that album is the only place it exists now.
(*And still is.)
