First Australian Band to have Advance/Presales on a Debut Album First Band to Play More Than 320 Gigs in their First Year of Formation - The Radiators

Date of Record: 1978

The Radiators debuted late 1978. Their first album 'Feel the Heat' was released late 1979 and by March 1980 these Aussie Rock Icons had achieved platinum status.

Little did they then know they would go on to forge a unique sound and influence thousands of music lovers throughout Australia. Since 1978 The Radiators have achieved many 'firsts'.

They were the First Australian Band to have advance/presales on a debut album (6,000 copies of 'Feel the Heat' had been sold before it was released); the First Australian Band to play more than 320 gigs in their first year of formation and to their credit one of the very few Rock Bands worldwide to have survived so long with their original frontline intact.
