Stream Early Recordings From 80s Australian Punks the Sunday Painters
By Tim Scott
Wollongong in the late 70s was a rough and tough steel town. A bruising place with no shortage of pubs but not one independent record store.
But at Wollongong High School, Peter Raengel, a young fan of the Velvet Underground, Patti Smith, and Television as well as Eno, Zappa and Beefheart, Swell Maps and the Pop Group, emerged with childhood friend and fellow guitarist Peter MacKinnon to form the Sunday Painters. They recruited a bassist (Kerrie Erwin—eventually replaced by Dennis Kennedy) and started to play around town...
Their electro-punk cover of David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel” received modest airplay on 2JJJ at the time, and jaunts to Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney (where they’d open for the Laughing Clowns) exposed them to a slightly wider audience but for the most part their LPs and tapes with hand made covers remained relatively obscure.
