BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
The Chantoozies were an Australian pop group active from 1986 to 1991. The band featured four female singers: Eve von Bibra, Angie La Bozzetta, Ally Fowler and Tottie Goldsmith; and four male musicians: Brett Goldsmith (bass guitars, keyboards, programming), Scott Griffiths (keyboards, programming), Frank McKoy (lead vocals, guitars) and David Reyne (drums, backing vocals). Their name is an intentional mispronunciation of the French word for female singer “chanteuse”. Tottie Goldsmith, Ally Fowler and musician David Reyne were well known television celebrities who had acted in Australian soap operas at the time the band started.
Chantoozies first single was a #4 Australian hit “Witch Queen” released on Mushroom Records in 1986.
Brett and Tottie Goldsmith are brother and sister; their father is restaurateur and nightclub owner Brian Goldsmith, their mother is actress Rhona Newton-John, and their aunt is English / Australian actress and pop singer Olivia Newton-John.
