Keep your fluids up

This is the first time I've ever mentioned Brisbane on this blog. It is my least favourite Australian city. It's too small, and the humidity is a killer. Nitpicking aside, the Bee Gees lived in the Brisbane suburb of Redcliffe early in their careers. In December 1966, they had a hit with their most successful Australian single, Spicks and Specks. On this day, it held the number six position on Brisbane radio station 4BC's Top 40 chart. By this time, they had already decided to return to their native England to further their career. This led to them achieving international fame, and becoming one of the most successful groups of all time. They continued to use the song in their set list on all of their later Australian tours. Barry Gibb also performed it on his solo tours. It was their, and his way, of thanking their Australian fans for supporting them.
