The Honeys

The Honeys recorded their debut album in Perth with a $1000 Arts Council grant. Goddess, released by Waterfront in 1988, is an uneven affair but had some strong pop songs that hinted at their potential.

Two singles followed, the second of which, 1989’s Monster, is their crowning glory. Australian indiepop fans will want to know that The Lighthouse Keepers’ Michael Dalton played the slide guitar and harmonica on this unheralded classic.

They split up soon after, before reuniting two years ago for an album, Star Baby, which drew more heavily their on alt-country influences.
