1927 are an Australian pop rock band formed in 1987 with James Barton on drums, Bill Frost on bass guitar, his brother Garry Frost on guitar and keyboards, and Eric Weideman on vocals, guitar and keyboards.
They were popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s with their major hit songs “That’s When I Think of You”, “If I Could”, “Compulsory Hero” and “Tell Me a Story”.
Their multi-platinum number-one album, …ish (1988) was followed by The Other Side (1990).
At the ARIA Music Awards of 1989 they won two categories: Breakthrough Artist – Album for …ish and Breakthrough Artist – Single for “That’s When I Think of You”.
At the 1990 ceremony they won Best Video for “Compulsory Hero”, which was directed by Geoff Barter. In 1992 the group released a third studio album, 1927, which reached the top 40; but they disbanded the following year. Weideman reformed 1927 in 2009 with a new line-up.
