“The Boy from Bicton” performing Suburban Boy, recorded in 1978
Dave’s first mainstream success struck a note with teenage boys throughout the Australian suburban landscape with it’s angst ridden lyrics and unique Australian take on the punk style of the day.
Dave honed his craft performing around Perth in the massive beer barns and rowdy Sunday Sessions of the 70’s, beginning with his first band Pus in the early 1970’s, years before the Saints or even the Sex Pistols would break onto the scene and proclaim themselves as Punk. Later in the decade he recruited respected local muso’s to form Dave Warner’s From the Suburbs, with whom this song is recorded.
His songs were unmistakably Aussie, with references to the footy, Western Australian localities and hilariously witty mocking of imported trends and styles such as disco, white suits, and of course Rugby.
If you were around at the time, you can almost smell the sour, beer soaked coasters and overflowing ashtrays…..
Laminex rock at it’s ultimate best!
Because of the potential for intermittent signal dropout on the 3G Mobile System, 2oceansFM is looking at ways to overcome the problem.
There is limited bandwidth available on the 3G network in Augusta and any increase in the number of people accessing it during busy periods causes data access to be interrupted, voice having a higher priority.
The station recently purchased a new router and opened a second dedicated ADSL+ connection with Westnet.
To encourage more members of the community to become involved in 2oceasnFM, we invite you to come in and try your hand at presenting.
Nothing to it, bring in your favourite CD’s and with help from an experienced announcer you can go live and we will record the show for you to take away and listen to and maybe encourage you to become an announcer here at 20ceansFM.
