Not many artists can claim a successful chart run where they consistently charted on the Pop, Rock and Dance charts. INXS was a special band that connected with a wide audience.

This 12″ is all stuff, no fluff. Extended mixes of 3 INXS hit songs on one platter. And, Ben Liebrand? ‘Nuff said.
I was listening to an old American Top 40 radio show a few weeks ago. Casey Kasem was introducing an INXS song and he told a story about their name. The band chose the big, block, bold 4-letter name because it stood out more on signs/posters/advertising. There was a lot of competition on the club circuit when the band was getting their start and they noticed that the bigger a band’s name was on the poster, the bigger the crowd they drew at the club. So, they shortened In Excess to INXS in order to be able to print their name in larger letters.
There’s always been a positive response anytime I’ve posted an INXS record so, the first 4 days of this week should please a lot of you. I really can’t imagine any INXS tracks are still vinyl only, what with all the anthologies, compilations, deluxe versions, etc. that have been released from their catalog over the years. But, some of you prefer the sound that vinyl provides so, here come a few INXS vinyl rips for your listening pleasure… Enjoy!
