INXS (pronounced "In Excess") was a rock group formed in Perth, Australia. The band formed in 1977 under the name The Farris Brothers. Original members included Michael Hutchence
(lead vocals), Andrew Farriss (guitar and keyboards), Tim Farriss (lead guitar), Jon Farriss (drums), Garry Beers (bass), and Kirk Pengilly (saxophone and guitar). The band changed their name to INXS just prior to the release of their self-titled début album in 1980.
