Sydney Rockers: 1980s

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.

"yeah, it was supposed to be the 'normal' shot in a story about what people got up to on the weekends...The journalist was a little peeved that we always looked like that. "But, you are supposed to be NORMAL!"..I got pissed off and was about to get ugly when the guy with the camera said "well, let's take a shot anyway!" "

This was taken in 1998 but it's a shot of the Lansdowne Hotel!!!

It looks so different.

Talking about Lansdowne Hotel... here's a few of them jamming right outside hahaa.
