Perth is a Culture Shock: Dave Faulkner on the Return of The Victims

Wednesday 19th July / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

Back in 1977, before they formed The Hoodoo Gurus, Dave Faulkner and James Baker were in The Victims.

Perth was a very different place at the time - cover bands reigned supreme and the punk scene was only just gaining momentum.

Despite this and their very short time together, The Victims made their mark - releasing a handful of now-iconic songs including Television Addict and influencing future generations of would-be punks.

In celebration of the band's 40th anniversary Dave and James are bringing the Victims back to Perth for a couple of shows with more recent recruit Ray Ahn on bass duties.

Dave Faulkner dropped by Breakfast with Caitlin and took us all back to the birth of Perth punk.
