The Worst Of Perth was six months old this week, roughly coinciding with 200,000 views, 250 posts and 5000 comments! Who would have thought the city and the world would embrace worsts so enthusiastically? Thanks to everyone for their suggestions, submissions and (almost) overwhelmingly positive and amusing comments. Probably time for another The Worst of Perth classic.
Many people will remember being hassled to go to a “free” rock concert in the early 1980’s. The group was Potter’s House, some kind of christians. I remember one guy telling me how he used to own prawn trawlers and fuck young whores, but Potter’s House changed his life. Instead of the prawn and whore life, he was now handing out pamphlets in the Hay Street Mall. Right On!
The free concert used to take place in Scarborough. I’m not sure of the building, but it was on Scarborough Beach Rd, not far from the beach. I said I’d go along one day if I could take photos. I took one of my favourite photos before they asked me to leave. I wonder what happened to this girl. This was sometime in the early 80’s. They are still around, but now instead of rock concerts, it is free movies. The poster was at Perth Station only last week.
