Coloured Rock was founded in 1977 by frontman Bunna Lawrie over the Kooniba Objective in Australia’s North Place. Lawrie, along with two of his brothers, began being a cover music group playing small cities and settlements. Among the band’s initial successes emerged in 1978 when their tune “Dance in the Moonlight” gained an area songwriting competition. The group started piecing together a body of materials and in 1981 they migrated, actually by playing music on the way, to Sydney. The music group increased to prominence using their 1984 debut discharge, Kooniba Rock and roll. This and its own 1985 follow-up, Isle of Greed, arrived them areas on Australian nationwide radio and resulted in their extensive travels. Through the entire ’80s the group released many albums in Australia, and one American discharge, Black Rock and roll From Red Middle, which arrived on Rounder Information in 1987. In the ’90s the group slowed their documenting and touring timetable but they was able to to push out a few albums including a most significant strikes compilation in 1997 Bunna Lawrie’s Greatest of Coloured Rock. In 1999 Lawrie became the initial Aboriginal Australian to get the sought after Don Banking institutions Music Prize, a prize generally reserved for Australian traditional musicians.
