Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: TYRONE COATES – THE BOMBERS, Hordern Pavillion Sydney, May 11, 1990

Not too many photos of Tyrone (or The Bombers in fact) exist. Shame really, cos back in the day they were a phenomenal live unit, with a rock solid line up of Alan Lancaster (Status Quo) and John Brewster (The Angels), and Tyrone on vocals out front. This photo was taken by Bob King. The … Continue reading Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: TYRONE COATES – THE BOMBERS, Hordern Pavillion Sydney, May 11, 1990

Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Hitmen DTK – Sydney (1991)

Who: Hitmen DTK (with Deniz Tek) Where: Annandale Hotel, NSW Australia  – 17 November 1991 Is this gig really 21 years back ? Where the hell are the years going ? This was when the Sydney rock n roll scene was still smoking, and great gigs were about as common as tatts on footballers. A … Continue reading Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Hitmen DTK – Sydney (1991)

Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Divinyls’ Mark and Chrissy (1988)

This image is one of my blog co-hort's personal faves. What's ironic - is - that although I saw and photographed the Divinyls a lot during the Temperamental tour, I am fairly certain I did not take this image ! The ol' brain has forgotten much since 1988, but I think this was taken by … Continue reading Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Divinyls’ Mark and Chrissy (1988)

Now here is a classic image taken by Mr Rockbrat, during the english summer of 1991.

Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Marc Lee De Hugar – Candy Harlots 1988

If the Kardomah Cafe in Kings Cross was the spiritual home for Sydney's Candy Harlots - then the St. James Tavern in Castlereagh Street must have come a close second. The St. James Tavern had a long flight of stairs at the entrance, and looking back, must surely have been a bit of a fire trap … Continue reading Classic Image From The Rockbrat Photo Collection: Marc Lee De Hugar – Candy Harlots 1988

Who: Rose Tattoo Where: Wagga, NSW Australia  – 22 January 1993 I've written about the 1993 Rosie Tatts reformation elsewhere on this blog so will not repeat myself.

Who: Girl Monstar Where: Esplanade Hotel, St Kilda, Melbourne - 11 July, 1992 Looking back I would've shot more rolls of film on Girl Monstar than any other artist. They were an amazing rock n roll band who should've made the big time. Alas.
