X formed in Sydney Australia in 1977 after Ian Rilen left Rose Tattoo before their debut single was released (though he wrote the classic "Bad Boy For Love".
I think it was about a decade ago, local man about town Mark Murrmann released this 7" of "Home is Where the Floor Is" and three other tracks. It was my first time hearing the band, and I still play this amazing single quite a bit. You can buy their 2 LPs reissued now on CD here.
They're touring the states soon, but unfortunately Ian Rilen died of bladder cancer a few years ago, so he'll be joining original member Steve Lucas in "spirit" only.
Good On Ya!
