NO FIXED ADDRESS
in the venue
Since being inducted into the South Australian Hall of Fame in 2016 Adelaide’s Own ‘No Fixed Address’ seemed to have picked up from where they left off and regained a renewed vigour for both live performance and recording.
Having formed out of CASM in 1979 the band achieved mainstream recognition through the Docu–drama Wrong Side of The Road and were the first totally indigenous act to sign a record deal and tour internationally. Their unique style of Reggae Rock influenced the sound of Australian music and opened the doors for many indigenous acts that have followed.
Despite having only ever recorded 9 songs a mini E.P From my Eyes and part of the sound track to Wrong Side of The Road. They have however managed to obtain cult status.
A recently unearthed PBS. 1981 Live at The Prince of Whales recording buried for over 20 years in the Melbourne Community Radio stations vault was evidence of the power originality and energy of the band particularly live.
Their songs have stood the test of time and are just as powerful and relevant to this day . The band supported Peter Tosh on his Australian Tour and have also performed with Ian Dury and the Blockheads, The Clash and Australian acts Cold Chisel, INXS, Men At Work, Lobby Loyde, Billy Thorpe to name a few They are mentioned in both the Peter Tosh and Bob Marley biographies and were pronounced “Revolutionaries” in the recently aired classic count Down 1982 episode.
Taking a break from recording a new album to do a few shows at September 2018, Giiyong Festival Eden N.S.W ,Melbourne’s Fed Square and lastly at The Gov they return to perform Featuring 4 original Band members Bart Willoughby, Lesley Graham, Ricky Harrison and John Miller . A crowd favourite join the guys to hear a mixture of both old and perhaps some new tunes.
