Their hooky pop-style songs coupled with the band’s brilliant musicianship quickly established them at the forefront of the acoustic and folk scene in Australia.
Frank Jones’ lyrics reflect the urban experience of Melbourne in the early nineties, and along with Paul Kelly and Mick Thomas they helped establish a new and very contemporary Australian folk song style.
Their four releases included the two seminal albums, Lizard Tree and Head Over Heels along with the EPs Whirled Music and Don’t Stop.
Port Fairy Festival in 1998 was supposed to be the finale for the Furphies, but fifteen years later, in 2013, they surprised themselves by the pleasure they found in playing again.
