Indecent Obsession formed in Brisbane, Australia in 1987. Molly Meldrum signed the band to his record label Melodian. The band tasted success with the single "Say Goodbye" hitting the Australian Top 10 in August 1989. The follow-up single "Tell Me Something" landed at #17 two months later, but would be the band's last Australian Top 20 single. "Tell Me Something" was picked up by US radio in early 1990 and the song landed at #31 without the band ever setting foot in America. The retitled "Indecent Obsession" album (for the American market) peaked at #148 in 1990.
"Indio" - the band's second album was more mature and featured the hit singles "Indio" (AUS#41) and "Kiss Me" (AUS#27). "Kiss Me" even landed at No.1 in South Africa for an amazing 27 weeks, where the album also hit #1.
Further very successful singles in South Africa from the same album were "Rebel With A Cause", "Whispers In The Dark" and "Indio". The band was hugely popular there and had a very successful tour in South Africa in 1992.
