Title – Hunters & Collectors – Jaws of Life
Information – Press Release
Author – Mark Seymour
Date – 1984

After the departure of Greg Perano and Martin Lubran, the remaining members of Hunters and Collectors, still believing they had something valuable to offer the Australian music scene, decided to regroup and compose a new set of songs for the “Jaws of Life” album.

The new material is more closely concerned with personal experience, it has a lot to do with “Soul” with a heavy emphasis on voices and big brass melodies. Hunters and Collectors are far more aware of emotion than they ever where before. The new songs reflect the importance of making contact with people by concentrating on those special moods and feelings that everybody understands. Their music will continue to grow because it is focused on simplicity and faith – “Soul Power”…..
