With the thugs of Tuggeranong bogarting all the media attention I was thrilled to see this in Dickson last night on Cape Street.

And with bonus postcode pride!

I’m sure the Northside thugs are better mannered and less prone to beating up strangers though.

That’s “Sir Berra (2902) Boy68” to you!




…and so forth.

Kambah Pride! BerraBoy, Kambah Pride.

FFS… what is it with all this psuedo American crap?! It is nothing to aspire to, in fact you have to aim pretty low to be a wannabe gangsta. Everytime I see one I just wanna kick them fair in the coit with my steel capped GP’s.

At least Aussie ‘thugs’ wearing torn jeans and ugh boots and a t-shirt with a pack of winnie blues tucked up the sleeve are home-grown.

heh heh, while we’re on the topic how about we compile a list of stupid postcode/area releated groups that have existed in Canberra in the past.

I can recall a bunch of people getting tattooed with something along the lines of ‘Belco’ a while back.


In the nineties there was a group that hailed from the Wanniassa area calling themselves ‘Nasa Posse’.

haha reminds me of the graffitti that someone spraypainted in the Woden bus interchange which said “South Central Woden” back in the early 90s.

ha, I remember that.. classic.

Bit of metho and take out that t and we have the “Northside Hugs”, a gang of hippie youth who help old ladies with their shopping, pick up rubbish and give directions to lost tourists.

They have very pretty handwriting for thugs.

Back in the ’90s when Bernie court was still in full swing, Woden area was pretty rough. I wouldn’t feel too unsafe anywhere in Canberra at any time (although I’m not huge and certianly have had the shit kicked out of me a few times). But I wouldn’t feel safe in the middle of Bernie at any time of day.

at least they can spel good. some taggers cnt speeel good…

people want cant spel good looks like fulls!!!!!

Northside have various ‘gangs’. Such as the Northside Boys OG and Northside Boys. Then we move on to Dara Boys, Dicko Boys ect ect. Nothing new.

A few years ago at the Belconnen Markets, they had a talent show. The last act included the son of the host, and she proudly introduced her gangsta rapper son.

The song?

2617 Represent.

I kid you not! I still recount this with glee to all who will listen. It’s obviously spreading.

It’s the new black!

What a sad thing to aspire to, being a “thug”.

We had that stabbing on Northbourne a while back. The victim even posted his tale on RA.

A thug by definition is a person who hires out their violence and intimidation skill-set, so it would appear that Northside Thugs is yet another small business doomed to collapse in its start-up year. Otherwise they would have included their phone number instead of the postcode.

Is that Texta™?

They are indeed gangsta!

this is hilare.
