Whilst the band was recording, WEA released Dekadance, a limited edition cassette only EP of INXS remixes from their album The Swing.[3]

On 19 May 1985, INXS won seven awards at the 1984 Countdown Music and Video Awards ceremony.[1] They performed "Burn for You", dressed in Akubras (hats) and Drizabones (outdoor coats/oilskin jackets). They performed five songs for the July 1985 Oz for Africa concert, in conjunction with the Live Aid benefit.[29] Two INXS songs, "What You Need" and "Don't Change", were also in the BBC broadcast and are contained on Live Aid's four DVD boxed set released in 2004.[30]

INXS had started out as a New Wave act, gradually moved in a more straight-ahead rock-oriented direction through the first half of the 1980s.[31] Listen Like Thieves was released in October 1985,[3] was approved of by critics[32], reaching #3 on the Australian charts and #11 on the US charts. With the release of Listen Like Thieves, the band had developed a rock sound influenced by Led Zeppelin and XTC, but remained true to the band's original roots in Aussie pubs. It was also the first album to feature songs written by a combination of band members, with Andrew Farris and Hutchence becoming the primary songwriters in the years to follow.[13] The first US single from the album, "This Time", stalled at #81 in late 1985, but the next single, "What You Need", released there in early 1986, became a top five Billboard hit,[6] bringing INXS their first breakout U.S. success. The single was also a top 20 hit in Canada, reached #2 in Australia (September 1985)[4] but only #51 on the UK charts.[28]
