    For a while there drive-ins showed pornos. Must've seemed like a good idea at the time.

    The one I went to at Bathurst in the 70's only showed soft core stuff, didn't educate me very well!.

    The old drive in that used to be at Kingswood had a big hill with a road running parallel to the southern fence. My old man was a copper & they used to go along there on friday & saturday nights moving the punters along trying to catch a free movie. One particular night they went must have been porno night. He told me that they pulled up behind a car to move him on & it took off like a shot out of a gun showering the cop car in gravel. They took off after it & it only made it around the corner to Second Ave before it lost control & went through a fence. My old man got out to check the driver was ok, and to his surprise when he got to the car the driver was starkers. Dad asked him what was doing with the lack of clothes. He claimed it was really hot & he needed to cool down. It was July. Poor prick got taken to the station as is. Ha ha

    From a “glorious” time in our history when ethnic stereotypes were a staple in Australian society...

    Yes , great song, it's like he is telling a story the way he presents it. I have a lot of other songs on the list too which are on CD, compilation albums or vinyl singles.
