This Australian group from Melbourne had a hit all around the world with this song, which was written by the brothers Evan and Idris Jones. The group consisted of Terry Dean and Rod De Clark, and this was a cover of Mungo Jerry’s hit of the same name.

The single went to No. 1 in Australia because of a radio ban on British songs. The country was trying to push local talent, so the Mixtures covered the Mungo Jerry song. But their version was so good it became an international hit, even in the UK where it went as high as No 2.

During the 1970s the group had over twenty members come and go. But as for chart success that was it. A one hit wonder in true style.
