Radiators, Flowers, Australian Crawl, original gig poster, 1980, Family Hotel, Rydalmere


Date April, 1980
Country Australia
Dimensions 51.5 × 76cm
Print Technique
Type Gig Poster

In very good condition:  small paper loss at top left and bottom right corners, tiny nicks along paper edges, right edge has been incompletely scored and separated below top right corner (see photos). Skew-iff fluoro-pink print registration is an authentic feature of the production process. 

The Radiators, Flowers (later known as Icehouse) and Australian Crawl played at the Family Hotel, Rydalmere, in April 1980.  These original, vintage screen-printed posters were cheaply-made advertisements for forthcoming shows;  taped or posted around telegraph poles, usually over the top of the previous weeks' posters, they symbolise a special moment in time for followers of Sydney's pub rock scene during the 1970s and 1980s.  Hard to find in this condition!
