Australian band formed in 1970 in Sydney by guitarist [a=Clive Shakespeare]. It wasn't until 1972 that Sherbets line up stabilised and consisted of [a=Daryl Braithwaite], Clive Shakespeare, [a=Tony Mitchell], [a=Garth Porter] and [a=Alan Sandow]. They had evolved from a soul based covers band to a pop/rock band working with original material. During their attempts to break into the US market [B][I]Sherbet[/B][/I] changed their name to [B][I][url=http://www.discogs.com/artist/Highway+(10)]Highway[/url][/B][/I] to give them a harder edge. The band broke up in 1979 but reformed under a new name [B][I][a=Sherbs][/B][/I] which lasted for a further 4 years and produced 3 albums. From 1999 [B][I]Sherbet[/B][/I] have come together to perform a number of times with the original members returning to the group.

Formed in 1969 from the remnants of two dance bands, Sherbet played for eight gruelling months in a Sydney discotheque before being spotted by the young Roger Davies, who was later to manage Tina Turner and Janet Jackson. By January 1972 the lineup had settled to the members shown here. Between 1971 and 1978 Sherbet released 15 albums and 30 singles, 20 of which were consecutive hits. Named Best Australian Group in the TV Week King of Pop Awards every year from 1973 to 1978, they gained a sound edge over other bands through Garth Porter's Mellotron machine. In 1979 they changed their name to Highway, attempting to project a heavier image in a failed bid for the US market. After splitting, they briefly reunited as The Sherbs, this time aiming - in vain - at an audience their own age.
