Sherbs ‎– The Skill (1980)

The Skill is the first of two albums by reformed Australian rockers Sherbet under the truncated nameplate the Sherbs, released in 1980 on Festival. In this new iteration, the band abscond the LRB-style pop/rock/soul of earlier output for a modernist, synth-laden tightness akin to Icehouse.
