Unusually within the Australian rock scene from the later ‘90s and early 2000s, that was still in thrall to American alt.rock and roll and its own (inevitably co-opted and commodified) anti-commercial rebelliousness, george were able to look for crossover success. These were as favored by young audiences because they were making use of their parents, recording supporters among divergent age ranges with an assortment of adult modern and alternative designs. The primary of george shaped around classically educated vocalist/keyboardist Katie Noonan and her sibling, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Tyrone Noonan. Nick Stewart was added on electric guitar, both acoustic and electrical, Geoff Green on drums and percussion and Geoff Hooton on bass. The music group formed exclusively to enter a skill competition in 1996, but skilled an organization chemistry that held them collectively. They released three EPs: the self-titled george in 1998; IT IS POSSIBLE TO Take What’s Mine in 1999; and Bastard-son Visit to 2000. At that time Hooton remaining the music group, changed on bass by Paulie Bromley, previously of the music group Pangaea. Those early years of constant work paid when, in 2001, they found the eye of Mushroom Information, who authorized them and released their 2002 recording Polyserena. To everyone’s shock, Polyserena debuted at number 1 in the graphs, achieving platinum position within weeks and finally going dual platinum. At the start of 2003, george performed Jon Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra using the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, producing them the next rock and roll band–after Deep Purple–to ever perform the piece. The others of that 12 months was spent documenting their second recording, Unity, in Byron Bay. Unity premiered in 2004 and, although well-known, it didn’t accomplish the runaway achievement of the debut. In 2006 george continued hiatus, partially motivated by Katie Noonan’s desire to start out a family group and pursue a single career.
