Pseudo Echo – Listening (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 26th June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi”

“Listening” is the debut single from Australian pop group Pseudo Echo. The song was released in November 1983 as the lead single from their debut studio album, Autumnal Park (1984). The song peaked at number 4 on the Australian Kent Music Report. Following the international success of “Funky Town”, a remixed version of “Listening” was released in 1987 for the movie “North Shore” starring Nia Peeples.

Pseudo Echo were formed in Melbourne in 1982 and were performing around Melbourne when music journalist Molly Meldrum attend one of their shows, at Melbourne’s ‘Jump Club’. Meldrum was impressed, spoke highly of the group and convinced them to perform on the music TV show Countdown where they performed a demo version of “Listening” on 28 June 1983. While it wasn’t unusual for Meldrum to speak in glowing terms about an up-and-coming artist, Pseudo Echo were the first unsigned artist to perform live on the show.

Meldrum’s introduction was: “We’re about to present a group, a local group, who have got no record contract. We saw them at a gig. I think they have loads of potential, so all you record companies out there, have a look at them, and the public, you judge for yourselves. We think they’re pretty good. A young group, they go under the name of Pseudo Echo. Here they are with “Listening”. Go boys!”

Shortly after, Pseudo Echo were signed by with EMI Music and producer Peter Dawkins (who had worked with Australian Crawl, Dragon) was at the helm for the studio to re-record “Listening” and made an immediate impact upon its release in November 1983.

The 12″ single with remixes was only released for the U.S. market in 1987.
