BONUS SONG BELOW: Undecided by Jim Keays’ Southern Cross
Undecided was released as the group’s debut single, backed by Wars or Hands of Time, both written by Mick Bower who is still with the band today. It gradually climbed the Adelaide charts, thanks to support from local radio DJs.
Wars or Hands of Time is the first Australian pop song to directly address the issue of the Vietnam War, which was then affecting the lives of many young Australians because of the controversial introduction of conscription in 1965.
