History
Swedish-born Karin Jansson formed CURIOUS (yellow) as a vehicle for her singing and songwriting. Jansson took her band's name from the Swedish 1960s art-house soft-porn film I Am Curious (yellow). She had previously been a key member of all-girl Swedish pop sensations Pink Champagne, and came to Australia in 1986 with The Church's Steve Kilbey. Jansson co-wrote The Church's biggest hit `Under the Milky Way' with Kilbey.

Kilbey also produced CURIOUS (yellow)'s debut 12-inch EP, i am curious, which came out in March 1988. Phil Maher from The Crystal Set contributed guitar to one track. With the release of the EP, CURIOUS (yellow) undertook an east coast tour with fellow Red Eye bands The Crystal Set, The Bhagavad Guitars and The Mexican Spitfires. Jansson issued two singles, `Taken By Surprise' (August) and `Love Itself' (November), and the album Charms & Blues (September) under the CURIOUS (yellow) moniker during 1990. Kilbey produced the album and co-wrote much of the material, which combined airy ambience with melancholy pop. Joining Jansson around that time were Les White, Mike Caen (guitar), Jim Bowman (guitar) and Mark Dawson (drums).
