Band Information

After many years of session work throughout the 80s including tours and recordings with Rose Tattoo, Cichon formed Judge Mercy in 1991. With the rest of the band also coming from a primarily session background, the music was polished and tight classic heavy rock with excellent songwriting. The band toured with AC/DC and Iron Maiden and left behind a couple of great recordings. Osmanovich later joined The Screaming Jets while Cichon and O’Shea played with Billy Thorpe and Peter Wells during the 90s.

Cichon has been based in the US for more a decade as an in-demand session guitarist for artists like Shania Twain and Billy Joel.
