The Swingers - Counting The Beat

The Swingers are one of the great "one-hit-wonder" (or in this case, two-hit wonder) bands of the early eighties. Formed in New Zealand in 1979 by Phil Judd (formerly of Split Enz), Dwayne "Bones" Hillman (currently in Midnight Oil) and Buster Stiggs, their song "One Good Reason" made the Top Twenty in NZ. Developing a sizeable Antipodean following, they hit their peak in 1981 with their number-one hit "Counting The Beat". They disbanded in 1982, after an album, several singles and some personnel changes. History

Sorry about all the popups and stuff! I could move the site elsewhere of course, but it's been here for seven years now and I'm lazy, so, yeah. Be warned that most of the external links are out of date, though I do plan on weeding those out when time permits.
