The Koalas - We Don't Want to Grow Up

The trend of the early 70s related or pretend family kid groups like the osmands, the jackson 5, the partridge family and so on found it's way to Australia in the form of groups of unrelated precocious preteens and teenagers singing annoying show tunes and hits of the day such as the TV show Young Talent Time. There where a host of b-teams some of which where fairly good which toured the length and bredth of Australia's shopping centres armed with a song in their hearts and a uniform of bad hair tunics and kinky boots. The koalas where on of them
Actually a niceish album for what it is. A ok version of chirpy chirpy cheep cheep and some hits from the hans christian anderson music amongst it
