Sydney Rockers: 1980s [10 Jul 2008|03:44pm]

So i was invited to join a facebook group called Sydney Rockers and it's basically the place where all of the old Sydney rockers and rockabilly folk from the 1980s and early 1990s post all their old pictures!

The photos are AMAZING. there are so many of them, but here are my favourites. I've kept to the black and white and sepia ones. Just to keep a theme. But the old colour ones are amazing too.

Thought some of you guys might be interested to see how things were done in rockabilly revival of the 1980s here in Sydney!

From a newspaper clipping.

Gorgeous Gals!! Platinum blonde was to the eighties scene what Bettie Page haircuts are to the current crowd!!!"

MOAR! (picture heavy btw)

These are so amazing. I really must go to that exhibition (Rockabilly: Livin the 50s) as soon as I can! Can't believe I haven't yet.
Has anyone gone to that?? The one held by the Historic Houses Trust.

I got the Historic Houses Trust newsletter today
and aside from the upcoming 50s Fair this caught my eye:

Rockabilly: living the 50s
7 June - 17 August 2008 | Museum of Sydney

The 1950s was an exuberant decade that saw the birth of rock and roll, new fashions and social mores, and a breakaway generation who became known as teenagers. At the turn of the 21st century there are some for whom the '50s never died. Photographer Steven Siewert has spent years documenting Sydney's rockabillies, a vibrant subculture who live and breathe an era that predates their earliest birthdays. The boys dress for cool with stovepipe jeans and slick quiffs, while the women wear dazzling cocktail frocks by night and colourful vintage dresses by day.

Steven Siewert's work straddles documentary and press photography. He combines professional work as a Sydney Morning Herald photojournalist with personal projects such as this.

I think you should check out:

It's what happens when you merge folks who are into the many aspects of kustom kulture, with butt-kicking Do It Yourself attitude.

HEP! is your local, street-level source for rockabilly and related. We're interested in all sorts of rock n roll DIY ventures and all the other folk who keep the community alive and interesting.

Check it out!!

While I'm here. I had such a great time at the Pat Capocci CD launch gig last night!! If you haven't checked them out, I highly recommend!
Google their myspace.. you won't regret it!

Hey guys
A few weeks back i had the wonderful chance of attending the 8th Annual Cars, Rock and Bowl hosted by Ultralux in beautiful Hobart.
This was an amazing weekend, with performances by Melbournes The Vaudevillians and Tassies own The No-Nos and The Bone Rattlers, vintage kustom cars, kustom bikes and (of course) Bowling!

Its was a wonderful day had by all, and hope that i will be able to make the track down again next year.

In the mean time, i thought you guys might be interested in a few images of some of the gorgeous cars that were there (and a few special ones of the bone rattlers)

Note: Sorry about the low quality, my camera died that day so i had to use my phone instead

Enjoy Guys!

Rockabilly Zine? [18 Apr 2008|01:00pm]

I've been toying around with the idea of starting a Rockabilly and related zine for a while... I think it's worth giving it a go.

who would be interested in starting one with me?

It'll be a street-level rockabilly and related publication which operates on the contributions and feedback from rockabilly and related fans.

It'll have interviews, articles, reviews, gig guide (depending on how often it'll be released), cheap ads for things we love, and other stuff.

I dunno, it's still in its really early stages so structure and content can be discussed.

I'm looking for people who:
- Live locally (preferably sydney or NSW, but this is open to anyone living in Australia.. depending on the range of distribution)
- Write. Don't need to be a serious writer.
- are artists or designers... don't need to be pro either.
- Are willing to distribute or at least spread the news about the zine.
- Love live music and supporting it.
- Love rockabilly and/or related.

Looking for both regular and non-regular contributors.

Just wanna see if there's any interest out there.

So yeah, message or comment if you'd like to give it a go or even if you'd just be interested in reading such a publication.

Name: Mikaela aka Dolly
Age: 19
Location: Sydney
Favourite types of music/bands/artists: Very much into The No-nos, The Vaduevillians, ZGT and The Cramps at the moment, but id be lying if i did say i still adore my metal and occasional EBM/industrial. I have very broad music loves.
Something you don't like: inconsiderate Arseholes
Something you want to happen: A bigger boost in the Sydney Rockabilly/PsychoBilly scene. We need more of a closenit kulture to happen. Something similar to Tassies Cars, Rock and Bowl

Sydney's Time Out Magazine's recent feature article talked about SYDNEY TRIBES!!
(y'know, tribes is the post subcultural term for what was traditionally used for subculture. The model of the subculture has since been critiqued and replaced with terms such as tribes and club-culture)

Once in a while the whole subculture thang resurfaces into mainstream media (although as an independent extremely localised publication, could Time Out magazine be called mainstream?). It doesn't do it often so when it does, I do get a little excited.

I think it's a pretty good snapshot of the kind of post-subcultural tribes in sydney.. well the stranger ones anyway. And it features my 2 favourite subcultures, psychobillies and rockabillies!
But also covers new tribes like Second Lifers and some other ones I haven't thought about like 'Ocean Swimmers'

Go here to read the article... however the link to psychobillies is incorrect. In the address bar add an 'h' so it says psychobillies correctly.


What do all of you think about the article?

So who went & saw them? What did you think?

I've only recently started listening to this kind of music (yeah I'm a bit slow) but now I'm obsessed.

Melbourne people, say hi!
