Early life and career

An early collaborative work produced by Bond and O'Donoghue was the University of Sydney student theatre revue "The Great Wall of Porridge" in 1967. It was a profitable success and was performed in a theatre off the University campus, with the funds reportedly paying for a parquetry floor in the Sydney University architecture students' common room.

Bond and O'Donoghue wrote the music for a pantomime "Hamlet on Ice", which premiered at the Nimrod Theatre. Its 1975 revival was described as "a jest at Shakespeare's Hamlet and Australian manhood among other things".

Awards

Bond and O'Donoghue won an Australian Film Institute award in 1981 for best movie score for the music for the film Fatty Finn. O'Donoghue has also written music for advertisements.
