The vibrant Melbourne music scene of the mid to late Seventies saw the emergence of many great bands who would go on to have long and distinguised careers (The Sports, Paul Kelly & The Dots, Models, Jo Jo Zep - just to name a few). One of the bands that everybody thought would be part of this wave was Bleeding Hearts. When they imploded, it came as a great shock and disappointment to their many fans.
Bleeding Hearts broke up in August 1977 and the Melbourne scene lost an important band. One of the great bands, as it turned out. A band brimming with so much potential, a band capable of writing songs that captured the zeitgeist of the times with perfect vision, a band overflowing with talented musicians. The Hearts had it all in many ways.
So then maybe that’s the answer to the question they posed in the title to their album, What Happened? There was no way a band could have stayed together with so much talent bouncing around within its epicentre. There was literally too much happening. And the bonds weren’t strong enough to prevent the band from splitting asunder.
Packaged in a deluxe 6 panel digi-pak with liner notes.
