Clifford Hoad founded his band in late 1983 after putting a band together starting with Bob Spencer & then bringing his younger brother Jeff Hoad down to Sydney from Gold Coast to take the role as the singer. The band then included Bob Spencer on guitar , Marlon Holden on bass & Clifford Hoad on drums . Cliff had met Bob Spencer ex skyhooks/Finch in Brisbane during the making of his Drouyn Drumkit ! The band was first called the Young Lions, after some member changes Cliff finally renamed his band KINGS OF THE SUN after seeing the movie KINGS OF THE SUN with Yul Brenner on daytime television one day in Sydney's Tamarama where the band resided . The band then continued with Bob rejoining & a new bass player John McKinnon. Many changes came through to the original lineup including new guitarist recruits Tommy Poulter then Ron Thiesson from the Uncanny Xmen. Clifford's Band finally settled with Glenn Morris on guitar & Anthony Ragg on bass & his younger brother Jeff on vocals & guitar.
