Australian pub rock was booming in the early '80s. AC/DC had become an international success story, Cold Chisel were practically Australian heroes and bands like Midnight Oil and Sunnyboys were making memorable, captivating rock'n'roll records.
But Divinyls emerged through all of this with a striking point of difference. Chrissy Amphlett was a refreshing face and voice out the front of a great Aussie rock band. With this, rock'n'roll was no longer a boys club and women were no longer regarded as auxiliary to the scene. She was female, but she was strong. She performed with aggression and more than held her own in front of occasionally hostile crowds.
Through great songs, fierce dedication to their artistic vision, tireless work and Amphlett's incomparable stage persona, Divinyls planted themselves firmly in the history books as one of Australia’s greatest rock acts.
