Th' Dudes won the national Battle of The Bands contest in 1976 and three years later picked up Top Group and Single of The Year for 'Be Mine Tonight' at the New Zealand Music Awards.

In 1980 their seminal album Where Are The Boys? was released and they became a household name.

Lead vocalist and charismatic front man Peter Urlich joined Jesse Mulligan in the studio to talk about making the seminal album, which included hits such as 'Walking In Light' and 'Bliss'.
