INXS is the debut studio album by Australian rock band INXS, originally released in October 1980 via Deluxe Records in Australia, ATCO Records in the US and Mercury Records in Europe.

INXS were formed as The Farriss Brothers in 1977 in Sydney, and began playing covers in Western Australian pubs and clubs, occasionally playing some of their original music. Mainstays of the band were main composer and keyboardist Andrew Farriss, drummer Jon Farriss, guitarists Tim Farriss and Kirk Pengilly, bassist Garry Gary Beers, and main lyricist and vocalist Michael Hutchence. Initially known for their new wave/pop style, INXS later developed a harder pub rock style that included funk and dance elements.

Whilst the band was gigging at local pubs around Sydney, they recorded their debut album during night sessions with producer Duncan McGuire. The album spawned their first big hit single in Australia “Just Keep Walking”, which reached #38 on the Australian Singles charts.

The album demonstrates the future potential of the band, and in some ways reflects them trying to identify their direction and sound. The style of the album reflects the new wave and post-punk sounds in vogue at that time. The drum and bass heavy sounds that would emerge on albums like Listen Like Thieves and Kick are not prominent across their debut.

The album peaked at #27 on the Australian Albums charts, and was released in the US in 1984.

Check out the tracks:  Just Keep Walking”; “On A Bus”; “Doctor”; “Jumping”; and “Body Language”.

This LP record is a “Back to Black” series 2017 reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and digital download, pressed in Europe via Petrol Electric.
