Released in 1987, ‘KICK’ propelled INXS to a new level, cementing their reputation and firmly establishing the band as a force to be reckoned with worldwide. Kick changed everything, becoming a slow-burning phenomenon that thanks to its trailblazing lead single, ‘Need You Tonight’, broke out around the world over the next 18 months. If ever a record embodied the oxymoron ‘complex simplicity’, Kick, the sixth album by INXS – Michael Hutchence, Andrew Farriss, Kirk Pengilly, Tim Farriss, Garry Gary Beers and Jon Farriss – is it. It’s an album so full of surprise, that even from a distance of 25 years, when you listen to it, you’re still waiting and wondering what exactly is about to happen next. The album spawned 4 US top 10 singles in a row including hits such as ‘New Sensation’, ‘Devil Inside’, and the timeless ballad ‘Never Tear Us Apart’, alongside fan favourites ‘Guns In The Sky’ and ‘Wild Life’. Certified eight times platinum in the US alone, Kick sold over 14 million copies worldwide.
