The Sports were a popular Australian rock group that performed and recorded between 1977 and 1981. Based in Melbourne, Victoria, the group signed to the Mushroom Records label and released a number of successful singles and albums. Their sound fit well with both 1970s British pub rock bands (such as Brinsley Schwarz) and British New Wave (such as Elvis Costello). Their best known songs include Boys (What Did The Detective Say?), Don't Throw Stones, When You Walk In The Room, How Come, Who Listens To The Radio?, Perhaps and Strangers on a Train.
