ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dave Warner is one of the most original artists Australia has ever produced. He formed Pus, Australia's first punk band in 1973 and by 1976 had developed a new concept: "suburban rock" - creating art and exciting music from the banalities of suburban life. With influences like The Fugs, The Mothers, The Who, and Doors, Warner synthesised various musical styles and topped it with biting lyrics of unmatched dexterity. HIs first album Mugs Game burst on the Aussie scene with unrestrained savagery and wit. A powerhouse live album Free Kicks followed. The third album Correct Weight (1979) contained songs written from different points of view and was more melodic in style but maintained the theme of suburbia with his lyrical masterpiece John Arlott Makes Me Chuckle a kind of New Wave David Ackles. In 1980 Warner travelled to L.A. and talked at length with the legendary Kim Fowley about a fourth album that would trace a young Aussie from his home to London, America and back. Fowley had been a fan since he'd heard Suburban Boy in Melbourne back in 78. He wasn't the only one impressed with the Perth born Warner. Bob Dylan called Warner his favourite Australian songwriter after touring there and The Stranglers became fans when the Suburbs supported them in Adelaide in 1978. After the fourth album, This Is My Planet, Warner turned his attention to writing in other medium - plays, musicals, screenplays and books. He is currently working on a new (8th) album.
