Calling on all former (and current) Canberra Punks

By Bundah_Bloke - 26 April 2013 5

“Head Full of Flames: Punk in the Nation’s Capital 1977 to 1992” is a book being written to cover the forgotten history of Punk in Canberra from 1977 to 1992. If you were, or know of anyone, active in the scene at that time please contact local author Chris Shakallis who has put out a final call for photos and anecdotes.

Please email him on canberrapunkandbeyond@hotmail.com

The formal announcement can be read here:

They were great!! More mature, obviously, but full of energy.

Punk nostalgia, irony much?

Were they any good?
I remember as a 16 yr old waiting for an hour outside Bham Odeon after a PIL concert.
Eventually some bloke popped his head out of the stage door with a “message from John”.
He said we should all F Off because he was having a curry and hadn’t we got homes to go to.
