Original early 80s pop culture
The band formed as The Motors and played covers live in Perth to pay for recording an album or originals. They changed the name to Formula One so as not to conflict with a band from the UK called The Motors. The band was very popular around Perth beer barns attracting an audience of over 1,000 four nights a week.
