The third instalment of my A to Z of favourite Australia bands, when I was growing up in Sydney.
The Cockroaches were a band mainly consisting of three brothers, Anthony, Paul (singer) and John Field along with Keyboardist Jeff. They were also a poppy dance band and attracted the party crowd with songs like She’s The One.
Here’s the video for She’s The One:
The band broke up in the 90’s, they had become Father’s and then created a kid friendly band called The Wiggles who are successful in Australia, the UK and the USA. Each Wiggle dresses up in their own colour eg. yellow, green, red and blue. After a few years Paul Field left and they replaced him with a new band member named Murray.
