After splitting in 1979, Sydney based Kiwi hit makers Dragon reformed in 1983 to tour and pay off debts. The reunion gave them a new lease of life as the anthemic single 'Rain' went to number two on the Australian chart (at a time of severe drought). 'Rain' was a departure — written by Todd and Marc Hunter with Todd’s wife Joanna Piggott, and not previous song writer supreme Paul Hewson. There's more evidence of a new look Dragon in the video with drummer Terry Chambers (fresh from XTC) and American producer Alan Mansfield (now Sharon O’Neill’s partner).
