Kevin Borich - Celebration

Snowball King/Goin' Somewhere/Mon Ami/Celebration/I Just Wanna Love You/Rainbows/Goin' Down Town/Love My Love (Will Carry On)

After the La De Das split, Kevin had a small stint with John Paul Young and the All Stars.
Kevin attempted to form a new group and by mid 1976, the Express was formed with Harry and Barry. This line-up was very short lived and the only known recording by them was "The End Of Me". This song would eventually appear on the various artists compilation album "Australian Guitar Album". Reuben San Fiansco, on bass, and Gil Matthews, on drums, replaced Harry and Barry. Matthews only stayed for a handful of gigs before returning to his seat with Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs. He was replaced by John Annas on drums in July 1976.
The band was signed by Image Records and in October 1976 the first single "I'm Going Somewhere"/"Scene From Star Crossed Lovers" was released. The song was introduced by a train whistle sound and it became the band's signature tune. Tim Partridge took over from San Fiansco and the new line-up completed the debut album "Celebration". Released in March 1977, a second single "Goin' Down Town" was issued.
