And it’s due for release soon.

Some 37 years on, classic Australian track Come Said The Boy is getting a sequel. 

The Mondo Rock hit, which was released back in 1983, has now scored a follow-up from songwriter Eric McCusker

Dubbed Bumping Into Memories, the track features on The DreamRoom’s – McCusker’s new band – new album, What The Moon Believes, and was co-written with Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ Jake Mason. 

While there isn’t a heap of information about the track available yet, McCusker has described the song as the “30 years later sequel”. 

Come Said The Boy brought huge success for McCusker and his Mondo Rock bandmates –  Ross Wilson, James Black, James Gillard and John James Hackett – with the song landing at #2 on the Kent Music Report Chart and featured on their 1984 album, The Modern Bop, which came in at #5 on the albums chart. 

It also came in at #13 on the end of year songs chart.

What The Moon Believes is due for release this month, with a launch event taking place at Oakleigh Lounge on 30 January.
