Stylus was a popular Melbourne funk/soul band of distinguished membership that released four albums and a number of singles 1975-1979. The band was fronted by Peter Cupples who went on to form the Peter Cupples Band. A Stylus reunion tour in 2002 yielded the album Still Alive.
Most of the founding members of Stylus had been in Mason's Cure with keyboardist and songwriter Ian Mason until he left for a composing career in advertising.
Peter Roberts joined Stylus as co-lead vocalist in 1979. See his solo single Double Trouble (1968), recorded as Robbie Peters.

Melbourne-born director Russell Mulcahy, later known for such films as Highlander, directed a video for Stylus's Summer Breeze. He has also made videos for a number of well-known artists including Queen, Billy Joel, Duran Duran and Human League.
