The Sunsets were 60’s garage band from Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, formed in 1965. from surf crew The Four Strangers and later in ’67. evolved in Tamam Shud, cult psychedelic/progressive group.

”The Sunsets travelled to Sydney to perform regular gigs at various venues: Surf City, the Star Club and the Sunset discotheque. In October 1965 they released a single, “Bye Bye Goodbye”, on the Leedon label and followed with “When I Found You” in March of the following year. They issued three singles on Festival, “A Life in the Sun Theme”, “Love’s Face” and “The Hot Generation” in as well as an EP, A Life in the Sun in 1967. Their tracks were used for two surf films, A Life in the Sun (1966) and The Hot Generation (1967), both directed by Paul Witzig. Late that year Peter Barron replaced Connell on bass guitar and the group, now based in Sydney, changed their name to Tamam Shud.” [wiki]
