Outrageous Sydney band led by Ignatius Jones with Billy O’Riordan as "Joylene Hairmouth". Their biggest hit They Won’t Let My Girlfriend Talk To Me charted Top 10 around Australia in 1981.

This version rewords the Kinks’ original somewhat, but the lyrics are basically the same.

Ignatius Jones has had a varied career that has included staging such events as the Sydney Olympics closing ceremony, and a production of Offenbach’s opera Orpheus in the Underworld.
