I feel so honoured to have Paulie Stewart, the lead singer of Aussie cult band Painters & Dockers, ask to use one of my photos as their promo pic for the upcoming Meredith Music Festival.
I remember seeing Painters and Dockers years ago when they would play live in Treasury Gardens, just near Parliament House, to protest against the Kennett Government’s proposed (and unfortunately eventuated) School Closures.
Painters and Dockers incorporate social/economic/politics issues with a sense of humour. Some of their well-known hits are: Nude School, Die Yuppie Die, Eat Shit Die, and You’re Going Home in the Back of a Divvy Van.
If you haven’t heard of the band, look them up.
