Ayers Rock biography
Inspired by TRAFFIC, SANTANA and WEATHER REPORT, AYERS ROCK were a leading Australian jazz-rock band back in the 70's. The 5-piece set built their reputation on solid musicianship and complex arrangements and were the first Aussies to play to massive crowds on the US touring circuit, predating The LITTLE RIVER BAND, AC/DC, AIR SUPPLY, MEN AT WORK and INXS. They made two albums before splitting up in 1976, then the band's two vocalists and guitar players reformed again in the early 80's, with the help of new musicians, to record a third album.

Taped live in Melbourne over two nights in September 1974, their first album, "Big Red Rock", is made up of rather bluesy, rock-based songs with sax and flute that give it a slight jazzy feel. Their second album, "Beyond" (1976", however, is a different kind of beast. Here, the band goes for a much more fusion feel, with great drumming and strong vocals. However, it is not altogether a very even album as the band seems bent on balancing fusion elements with more accessible rock songs; the few fusion tracks contained are still worth a listen. The band's third album, "Hotspell" (1980) is unfortunately impossible to come by and can therefore not be rated (no photo available).

Not overly progressive but still worth checking out, the band's second album "Beyond" is their best and should appeal mostly to fans of the MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA.

Ayers Rock were an Australian jazz fusion, progressive rock band which formed in 1973. Early members were Ray Burton on guitar and vocals, Duncan McGuire on bass guitar, and Mark Kennedy on drums who formed a trio Burton McGuire & Kennedy in June 1973. In August, after James Doyle had joined on lead guitar, the group changed their name to Ayers Rock. The band's first two albums, Big Red Rock (1974) and Beyond (1976) both reached the top 50 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart, whilst their third album, Hot Spell (1980) failed to chart. They released six singles, none of which broke into the singles charts. Ayers Rock toured Australia and the United States extensively, disbanding in 1981. According to Australian rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, the members "were seen as 'musician's musicians'. The band issued a series of technically proficient recordings, but in the long run any quest for commercial acceptance was marred by the seriousness of the music".[1][disputed – discuss] Duncan Kimball observed "Ayers Rock's recordings suggest that there was some dilemma about whether they should pursue a more expansive instrumental-based approach or opt for a more song-based commercial sound." "This dilemma was never satifactorily [sic] resolved, and the group's relatively short lifespan and small catalogue meant that they never really got the chance to reach their full potential.
