‘Two young brown chicks walking around Doncaster Shoppingtown dressed like they were about to go and tend to goats in the Swiss Alps must have been quite the sight …’
While most music careers stalled during the pandemic, Vika and Linda Bull soared with two chart-topping albums as they became beacons of warmth in uncertain times. For three decades they were best known as backing singers and collaborators to some of Australia’s biggest artists, but it was when the world turned upside down that everyone realised just how much they loved the exquisite harmonies of these hard-working, easy-talking, all-singing sisters.
With charming honesty and infectious humour, Vika and Linda recount the highs and lows, twists and turns they’ve navigated on the long road to centre stage, from growing up as dark-skinned girls in 1970s Doncaster to confronting their personal demons and stepping into the spotlight as their unabashed selves. No Bull is a riot of a show and a tonic for our times.
