AVION (Australia) - 4 Rare Singles 1984 - 85 - 87

AVION (Australia) Still The Night Single 1984
As requested, re-posted as it's extremely hard to find material

A mythical band in their homeland Australia, AVION were formed in the early Eighties releasing their first self-titled melodic rock oriented LP for the RCA label in 1983.
The following year the band put out the 2-sided single "Still The Night" featuring two new penned songs, but the label drop Avion soon so they signed with EMI and started recording a new album, the very good and more AOR focused 'White Noise'.

Avion did a solid touring presenting the album and recording on tape some live shows, which were self-released by the band on cassette format as 'Avion Live'.
But it was on a late 1987 tour that keyboardist Evan Murray was killed in a car accident. This, and the failure to break through commercially outside Australia finally led the remaining members to call an end to Avion's tenure.
Great guitarist and singer Randall Waller later got international success as Bonnie Tyler and Shania Twain stable touring member.
