Shy Impostors - Shy Impostors
From September 1979 to June 1980, Shy Impostors shook up Sydney's inner city live music scene. Fronted by singer-songwriter Penny Ward and with guitarist Richard Burgman (Sunnyboys, The Saints, Weddings, Parties, Anything), bassist Peter Oxley (Sunnyboys, Sparklers, Ed Kuepper) and drummer Michael Charles (Lipstick Killers, Screaming Tribesmen, Mick Medew & The Mesmerisers), they played infectious, raucous and melodic pop music.

In February of 1980 the band recorded seven songs at Palm Studios, Sydney. Two of these tracks, At The Barrier / Seein' Double, were posthumously released late in 1980 on Sydney's Phantom label. The other five tracks languished in the vaults.

During 2016 all seven tracks were restored from original master tapes and mixed by producer Jason Blackwell. The resulting self titled CD is a long overdue retrospective giving yet another intriguing insight into the formative years of Sydney's post Radio Birdman indie music explosion.
