The Twilights formed in Adelaide in 1964, and alongside the Easybeats and the Masters Apprentices, they are widely considered to be one of the most significant Australian rock groups of the 1960s.
The Twilights were renowned for their on-stage humour and were held in high respect by fellow musicians. The group is also notable as one of the few major Australian rock bands of the period to retain the same personnel for virtually all of its career.
Vocalist Glenn Shorrock later fronted Axiom, Esperanto and Little River Band, and guitarist Terry Britten went on to become an internationally successful songwriter and producer, and wrote major hits for artists such as Cliff Richard and Tina Turner.
