Perth Slo Machines

Rick M notes the continued slow mouldering of Perth Slot Machines on the Barrio, Fitzgerald Street North Perth. God knows what’s in there. There haven’t been slo machines in there for at least 30 years. I like that it’s there. I would love to think that there are dust covered slot machines inside.

    The memories flow. Playing pinball at Scarborough whilst listening to a jukebox crank out my favourite songs. One song for sixpence, five songs for two-bob.

    This must be where the majority of Perth drivers get their cars fixed.

    Little know fact – Perth Slo Machines are the exclusive provider of major project evaluation equipment to the WA State Government. Having been successfully used on the Perth foreshore redevelopment, Bertie fans will soon be enjoying Melbourne Dockland’s level vibrancy with Dubai standard kitsch.

    Perth Slo Machines are also being successfully deployed by the Cottesloe Town Council who continue to provide Perth beach goers with that holiday style Bali toilet experience and nostalgic 1950’s paper wrapped dining experience.

    A WACA spokesman was unable to indicate whether this progressive organisation was in discusssions with Perth Slo Machines about ground redevelopment, with the aim of providing innovative shade solutions during the balmy 40 degree weather during the Perth Test, He did indicate that if ever funding was found Perth Slo Machines would be at the top of the shortlist. Fridges will continue to be provided for international media laptops in the interim.

    Perth Slo Machines – where would we be without them?

    It’s a sad indictment on the Australian car industry when people start parking Korean imports in our Thornlie sleepouts.

    You don’t understand, do you? Slo machines are built for us Slo’s to use. We know we’re a bit slo, but this company takes care of our needs by building these special slo machines for us. ‘
    Theyre also very slo to build them, and very slo to fix anything around their building.
    It’s the way we like it. Yours sincerely, the Slo’s of North Perth.

    My Dad used to own a round of video games back in the 80’s and early 90’s. Perth Slo machines had an electronics genius running the place. Could fix anything. I spent many happy hours barely dodging electrocution in that place.

    Ahhh… Galaga 20 cents for an hour’s worth of play, if you were any good…. Still know huge chunks of Perth really well from ‘doing the round on a saturday night, going round to all the pizza bars and delis, counting up the money and divvying it up with the owners. Some real characters out there. They all loved me ‘cos I was a dark eyed, dark haired, big boobed teenager, designed by god to appeal to the Italian pizza bar owners. This manifested as a suspicious number of free pizzas, but Dad kept a really close eye on me :) No going into the meat fridge ;)
