In 1992, Caroline Kennedy-McCracken formed indie pop four-piece The Plums with guitarist Steve Moffat and drummer Shamus Goble; all three had previously played in the band Jack and the Beanstalk. They were joined by Pete McCracken on bass guitar. According to rock music historian Ian McFarlane, "The Plums mixed strident guitar riffs with melodic pop roots. Kennedy was the band's focal point with her tough-but-graceful presence, opinionated views and emotion-charged, if imperfect, vocals".
The band released two EPs on Mushroom's Temptation label, Au Revoir Sex Kitten and Read All Over. The album Gun followed in 1994. The band's final recording was the Heavenly EP, released in 1995. The band broke up the same year. Thanks to RAM

"You Won't Forget About Me" is a pop and dance song performed by the Australian singer Dannii Minogue, released in autumn 2004 (see 2004 in music). Originally released as a single only, the track appeared on Minogue's 2006 compilation album, The Hits & Beyond, and has since been officially added to the track listing of the studio album, Club Disco.
After the success of her previous album, Neon Nights, Minogue was asked by All Around the World Records, a major dance label whose main signings were Cascada, Ultrabeat, N-Trance and Flip & Fill, if she would write the lyrics to a popular dance instrumental track called "Flower Power", which was a huge hit in clubs in Ibiza. Minogue agreed and wrote the lyrics to the song that became "You Won't Forget About Me". About writing lyrics for the song Minogue said, "I'd heard it without vocals and I thought, 'Fantastic'. I had already written loads of vocals for myself and knew I had something that would be perfect for it." Thanks to Mustang.

The song is inspired by Anu's hero Cathy Freeman. At a Mushroom Records press release, Anu said; “I met Cathy at the ARIA Music Awards a couple of years ago but it wasn’t until I saw her in Seville... that "‘Coz I’m Free" came together. I watched her win the World Championships and then we caught up in London not long afterwards…. She’s so inspiring—her focus, how hard she trains, all that she’s achieved. When I watched the race in Seville, the camera zoomed in on her tattoo and I got the idea then for a song.”The song peaked at number 86 on the ARIA Chart.

Mark Trevorrow (born 4 February 1959 in Melbourne, Victoria), is an Australian comedian, television host and media personality. He first came to prominence in the cabaret duo Globos with Wendy De Waal, and they scored two Australian Top 20 hits with quirky covers of "Tintarella di luna" (1982) and Sonny & Cher's "The Beat Goes On" (1983), both of which were produced by Red Symons. In 1984 he formed a comedy duo in with Cathy Armstrong, in which his flamboyant alter ego Bob Downe was born. "Bob Downe" is a cheesy, safari-suit-wearing lounge singer with dazzling teeth, and host of the fictional regional daytime TV show Good Morning Murwillumbah. The distinction between the two personae is often blurred.
