Over the last few weeks I’ve been working away at scanning all my gig flyers from 1988 until present and I’ve finally finished (until I find another pile of them in a box!) so please click on the Flyers button at the top of the page or click here. The flyers are mostly Canberra metal gigs however there are some other styles and locations amongst them. It’s interesting to see the rise and fall of different generations of Canberra metal bands from the early 90s Terrace Bar/Civic Youth Cafe days to the early 00s Rock Ape era to the Basement/Pot Belly era of today. Sadly paper flyers are a dying art form and I refuse to post any flyers that weren’t actually printed and disseminated. I still have a few larger flyers that I have to work out how to scan and also some more that friends are going to supply so I’ll post further updates once there are more available. So feel free to browse the 800 or so flyers and either reminisce or feel jealous. Enjoy.
Ps: Here is the first local gig I ever attended waaaaaay back in 1989. It was a massive gig with hundreds of kids going crazy 80s style with stagediving galore, a circle pit and many rows of headbangers. I still remember having to hold my head up during Addictive as my neck was rubber after headbanging for 4 bands straight.
