Australian Crawl were an Australian rock band founded in 1978. After their 1980 debut album (The Boys Light Up) reached No. 4 they had two No. 1 albums; 1981’s Sirocco and 1982’s Sons of Beaches. Their early singles reached the top 25 but none broke into the Top Ten. Their best performing single was No. 1 hit “Reckless” which showed a more mature approach than earlier hits, and came from their 1983 Semantics EP. The band’s status as an icon on the Australian music scene was acknowledged by induction into the 1996 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame.
