Bruno Adams was born in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria, Australia in 1963 and moved to Melbourne in 1978. There, he became part of the embryonic Punk/New Wave scene, playing with musicians from The Saints, Crime & The City Solution, and Laughing Clowns.
In 1984 he formed his own band Once Upon A Time. They played Melbourne's clubs from 1985 to 1988, building a reputation for apocalyptic live shows with their avantgarde psychedelic blues sound. They moved to Berlin in 1989 and supported Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds throughout Europe on "The Good Son"- Tour of 1990. A European tour supporting Swans followed in the early 1990's.
