Supernaut hit the scene in a big way with their first ever single “I Like It Both Ways” becoming an almost instant hit. Originally formed in Perth around 1974, they took the step of moving to Melbourne early in their career to seek their fortune. Coming to the attention of Molly Meldrum certainly helped and he produced their first album & made sure they were featured on Countdown.
They created quite a bit of talk with their sexually ambiguous lyrics & glam look but that was short lived and even seemed to work against them in the end. Supernaut eventually relocated again, this time to Sydney, and tried to re-invent themselves in a Punk/New Wave style, changing their name to “The Nauts”.
