Goanna is an Australian band, notable in integrating social protest with popular music.
Formed by singer-songwriter Shane Howard in the late 1970s, they produced three full albums, and a very rare four song EP record. The original name of the band was "The Goanna Band", which was the name used on the EP release in 1979. However, the original name was soon shortened to simply "Goanna" by the time that the album Spirit of Place was released in the early 1980s. They were signed to WEA Australia.
In July 2010, Shane Howard will release his long awaited new studio album, Goanna Dreaming, and will be touring nationally.Produced by Kerryn Tolhurst, (Dingoes) and Howard, this trans-Pacific recording project began in Tucson, Arizona in Tolhurst’s studio and was completed back in Australia.
