The Allusions

Profile:
The Allusions was an Australian quintet based in Sydney, New South Wales formed in late 1965. Its members were drawn from several other accomplished Sydney groups, and boasted four singers. Their leader, singer/guitarist/composer Mike Morris (9), had previously played with Dennis & The Dellawares; Terry Hearne had been the bassist in popular instrumental group The Dave Bridge Trio. Terry Chapman (2) and Kevin Hughes (5) had both been members of the early 1960's Sydney surf band The Midnighters (3). Terry Chapman quit the band in July 1966, not long before their third single was recorded. Chapman's replacement was Bruce Davis (4), who had worked with Morris in The Dellawares. Mike Morris left the band in late 1967, and he was replaced by John Spence (7). The Allusions continued as a four-piece until October 1968, when Terry Hearne quit to join Digger Revell's backing band. Mike Morris then rejoined, to raise money for an overseas trip, but by this time the momentum of their early success had dissipated, and in the face of changing trends they split for good in early 1969. Artist John Shaw (10) is recorded as a vocalist and playing piano and organ but his exact tenure with the band is unclear.
