Part 6 - 1986 to 1988
Even more fine music, Hotel Breslin's, Death Row Road,
Thanks for the Fish, who left for Melbourne,
but not before penning a classic song about Brisbane.
Small Town Hicksville, oh so boring.
John Kennedy's fantastic band "Loves Gone Wrong"
with his classic song about leaving Brisbane,
can you see a theme running through the story of
brisbands and the wonderful, Wonderous Fair
who morphed out of Tangled Shoelaces.
The Crysalids, Sunny Guitar Pop, very much
describes the sound in Brisbane at the time.
Electronic music from boxcar, reggae sounds
from the fun things, lots of different styles
around at the time.
1988 was a momentous time in Brisbane
the end of the Joh era and the world expo
being held here, which went for 6 months.
All girl band Batswing Saloon, a rare thing
up here, and a nice interview with Michelle
from the band.
