See! We all know about Brashes. That's why Tony's comment on TGYH was the most talked about piece of telly in '06. Remember how you would always open up the tape covers to see if they had left a tape in there? One day, I found one! Pity that I had no love for Whitesnake.

Thanks Aron, loving your work.

Brashs! I won a $20 voucher for Brashs from Smash Hits for writing up something derogatory about Sophie Lee to Black Type, and spent it on Roxette's Joyride cassette.

Thanks Aron - this stuff is pure gold.

Do you think I can find that darn Hey Dad article? I've re-gone through a few hundred magazines and didn't find it again. *sigh* I did find an article on the 'Little Fat Kid' though...

Hope this isn't to disappointing...

Anyway, as I've re-gone through the mags, this time I kept out all the major articles and interviews on Australian Comedy stretching back 30 years. Plus other popular culture bits and pieces that you would love if you grew up watching Australian TV from the 80's onwards. As very little off this type of info seems to crop up online I thought I might start to post it.

I won't hi-jack this thread, but I've started a Aussie Comedy thread in the 'Anything Goes' forum. So feel free to pop over and take a look. If you have any links or articles yourself feel free to add them.

Thanks, appreciate the effort in finding that Hey Dad..! article.

Someone mispelt Jana in that Frontline article!

At least you have photos, (thanks for sharing) I didn't have a camera at the time. You photo captures the crowd better. If that centre had colapsed imagine the casulties! I would love to see that other photo of Gillian, I remember her being stunned by the turn out.

I didn't go to Hanson.

Here is a couple of extra odds and ends. Nothing exciting tonight.

I love those photos that you uploaded, because, of course, I couldn't get that close. My photos of the event are all crap, but they do show the blandness of the then fashion. My boyfriend at the time had a very cool mate, who was like 16 at the time, but a professional DJ, break-dancer, all-round massive insane hip hop dude; he allowed me a 30 second, NO FINGERS!!, glimpse at this amazing photo he took of GA. She had spun around to where he was standing near Brashes and sort of did this open mouthed amazed face (like this :o) right down the barrel of his lens. Now, if he wondered by here and scanned that in, I would be in heaven.

Great to see a shot of Bippy's Bistro - always smelt of burnt toast. It was actually a very freaky day, management hadn't a clue how massive she would be. Some time later Hanson come to the centre and as a precaution they put them in the parking lot. They could be heard twenty blocks away.

Thanks a lot for your work H&R, was really enjoyable reading them all. There was a Hey Dad..! article in Rolling Stone? You have to scan that just so we can all gape at what the hell was in it. Was there a justification of the introduction of the Little Fat Kid? I hope so.

Michael Moloy, Rob Switch; maybe it was an attempt to redress the balance by getting all the wog names right and stuffing up the skip ones. That's cool. And I love the way Tony gets lumped in with all the other undergraduates, hence his later incarnation's protest "But I never went to university!!". And I can't believe Tom and Santo lived together, how cool is that?
Thanks for the kind words. I spent half the night last night going through old Rolling Stones, I always get side tracked reading old articles. There was one issue with a huge article on 'Hey Dad!' (Rolling Stone + Hey Dad! = does not compute!) They can go back into storage now and I'll start on the Countdowns and Aussie Smash Hits. I'm sure there is some stuff in them as well. Aaaah, to be a hoarder!

I'd love a poster of that image, I love the Funky Squad and wished they'd make a Johnny Swank series in the same style. Six episodes would be fine, I love the satire they do now, but wish they'd just do some more pure fun shows.

menagers wrote:And great move scanning in the covers, I will keep an eye out next time we go to those wool sheds in Tyabb (mmm, scones... mmm), even if it does mean surviving all those undies shots.


Don't knock the undies shots, they were half the reason I ended up with all the D-Gen articles! lol - You could tell whenever Rolling Stone were wanting a higher circulation, the had a 'New Hot Issue' chockers with flesh. Novel at first, but they ended up doing it like four times a year!

Keep an eye on eBay as well, if you really want them Issues from this period never go for more than a dollar or two.

Here is a couple of scans just for you Menagers (I presume you are an X-File fan from your avatar.) They are very tenuously linked to Martin Molloy. When Gillian Anderson came out she did an interview with Mick and Tone, I thought I had an article on Gillian with a picture of this. Turns out it was just another Radio Station. (They didn't get the size 7 shoes exclusive!) As I've dug out the article thought I'd upload it though! It shows the absolute mentalness of the crowd size! I went to the one in Sydney, foolishly thinking if I turned up at 6am no one would queue that early. People had queued overnight. I'm a huge X-files fan, but I didn't paint my face like the girls in the picture!



Hope you enjoy,
Aron
