New Zealand Music Month - Day 7

The Swingers had a massive hit in 1981 with "Counting the Beat", not that this can be deduced from the limited amount of their material that's ever been released on CD. While some of their earliest tracks are available on the AK79 CD release, and two versions of the Practical Jokers album are available on CD, their later output has vanished without trace. Punch and Judy was their last single, recorded as a four-piece (having pinched Andrew Snoid from the Pop Mechanix while said band was trying to break into the Australian market).
