DEDICATION

This project is dedicated to the memory of all Melbourne Punks who are no longer with us.

You are gone but not forgotten.

R.I.P

PUNK'S NOT DEAD!


 

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS:

I have had a great time meeting, interviewing and listening to the stories of everyone who has contributed to this project. I have laughed, seen tears, and have been personally moved by many of the stories I have heard and recorded.

 

I would especially like to thank the following people for their assistance, advice, and support in the research of this project: Zol at The Australain Punk Website, Jack Feedback, Rick Ferrara, Simon Grounds, Michael Chrystal, Peter McGrath, Kate Buck, Alan Bamford, Garry Gray, Rob Wellington, Paul Conroy, Dolores San Miguel, Jim Buck, Fred Negro and Julie Mac. 


And to the rest of you, it has been an honour, thank you! Without you this project would not exist.

Love Melynda XXX
