the AU interview: Jeremy Oxley (Sunnyboys) and Mary Oxley Griffiths discuss their book "Here Comes the Sun"

The Sunnyboys were Australian surf pop idols in the early 80s before the pressures of a being touring rock band lead to their breakup. Over the years, the lead singer, Jeremy Oxley has had a different battle with schizophrenia. All this changed with a meeting in 2008 with nurse Mary Griffiths, who helped Jeremy overcome his demons. They have written a book, Here Comes The Sun about their lives and how they met. John Goodridge from the AU review had a chat with them about it.

Sydney Film Festival Review: The Sunnyboy (Australia, 2013)

When Kaye Harrison set out to make a schizophrenia documentary she had no idea her subject would make a come-back to music. It’s a fitting chapter in the long and often complex history of The Sunnyboys and unsurprising that once again a curveball would appear out of leftfield. Except that this time this ball has resulted in a home-run- an excellent feature documentary about one enigmatic creature.

VIVID Live Review: The Sunnyboys - Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House (02.06.13)

In 2012, The Sunnyboys had performed as Kids In Dust and made a jubilant return to the live scene at the Hoodoo Gurus’ Dig It Up! Festival. In a little over a year they’d make a come back once again and do a concert proper. It could’ve been the “gig that never was” or “may have been” but instead it lived up to and exceeded expectations.

Live Review: Elvis Costello + The Sunnyboys - Bimbadgen Estate, Hunter Valley (02.02.13)

Having spent the early afternoon watching the Weather Channel to ensure that Elvis would not become victim of the mud, I made my rather late appearance at Bimbadgen Estate in the Hunter Valley just in time to catch the most welcome return of the reformed Sunnyboys. The large crowd were enraptured, with the level that their music had warmed our hearts in the mid 80s clearly on show. Here's hoping that the reformation is not short lived.
