Tarney/Spencer Band

The Tarney/Spencer Band — alternately billed as Tarney & Spencer — were an Australian pop-rock duo comprised of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Alan Tarney and drummer/co-writer Trevor Spencer. The pair released a self-titled album on Bradley’s in 1976, followed by two albums and a standalone single on A&M in 1978 and 1979.

Despite limited success as a recording unit, the pair’s material was much-covered by popular performers during the time-period. The duo ultimately became a creative-backing team on albums by Cliff Richard, Barbara Dickson, and Leo Sayer at the turn of the 1980s.

Members: Alan Tarney (guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals), Trevor Spencer (drums)
