A couple of requests

I have received a couple requests lately which Im passing on to the SSS
readership. 1st  Scot is after Redgum stuff for a documentary he is hoping
to do, sounds like a promising project so all you Redgum fans out there
this is for you.
Over to scot


I’m after photos and videos of Redgum, especially anything that 
people may have taken at gigs through the years.
 I would digitise any material and return it to the owner with a 
digitised copy for their own use.
 So they’d be helping me with an important cultural project as
 well as preserving their own memorabilia. Who knows, this 
project may even convince Sony to finally reissue the old
 Redgum albums on CD…


You can email Scot on this address

digihed@netspeed.com.au


The 2nd request is for memories, music images whatever you have on Brisbane
electronic music
Ill give you the whole request as it came from Dennis

Hi Bob - thanks for writing. Nice work on the blog too.
We're working on a major retrospective of electronic music production in Brisbane 
over the last 20-30 years, and need to make sure we cover as much territory as possible.
 We need to look back in time at who was active with electronic music here during the 80s, 
as we started in 1994. Of course we know about Boxcar, but bands like Pork etc 
who were part of the scene well before that.

In your blog travels, own memory, tapes and 7" that you've got in your collection, 
and the recollections of your fans, we need want to dig up band names, contacts, 
and ideally any existing sources of tracks for this genre. 

The project is in the early days, but attached is more information. All help will be credited. 
Also attached is my running list so far but its mostly 90's-onwards...

Regards
Dennis

If you can help leave a comment here and I shall get back to you
I wont post any comments with email address's but I will froward you
contact details for denis.
Thanks

Boys Next Door Live 1977


A Boys Next Door Live Cassette released back in the early 80s. This comes from an un-numbered copy of a release of 500.
The blurb on the cover states:

On August 19th 1977 The Boys Next Door played their second public performance at a 'New Wave Rock Show' at Swinburne College in Melbourne. they were bottom of a bill that also comprised The Obsessions (who included Rowland Howard) and the headliners The Reals (who included Gary Gray, Ian Olsen and Chris Walsh). For some reason The Obsessions pulled out and were replaced by The Babeez (later to become The News). Entrance was 50c.
This live tape was recorded by 3SW and only rediscovered recently. What you hear is a rough but accurate recording of one of the seminal Melbourne punk concerts, and of a band that were to develop into the most important Australian bands of recent times.
