How good were The Victims?! These cats were awesome. Many years ago I was give a tap that had two awesome live Hoodoo Gurus shows (I will get around to uploading them someday) and a show by The Victims. I didn’t know much about them at the time but once I viewed this gem, I knew I was going to be searching everywhere til I found their records. Every store I went to resulted in me saying “Have you got the records by The Victims?” and I was always met with “I haven’t seen those for years and when they come up, they’re not cheap!” But i refused to give up! Somewhere, in some store around the planet there had to be some records by this Perth trio sitting on some shelf collecting dust with a $2 price tag unbeknownst to the stores owner.

It wasn’t until 2011 when I stumbled into a record store in Japan that I was able to get my hands on a collection of the bands complete recordings PLUS a bunch of demos on vinyl via a Japanese label called 1977 Records. I was in heaven! After 20+ years of searching, I finally found the Victims recordings on vinyl. Yay! See, my friends, never give up!

Anyway, I decided to upload The Victims live show that I had on VHS cos I figured that everyone needs to see it. So here it is featuring a very young Dave Faulkner (aka Dave Flick) on guitar and vocals and James Baker on the drums. Check it out!

Bonus ramblings: Last year I got to see a reunion of sorts as Dave and James together with Ray Ahn from The Hard-Ons reformed a version of The Victims known as The Television Addicts. They were great and a ton of fun. It was interesting to hear Dave playing a looser style of music with The Victims compared to the very perfected and precise tunes of the Hoodoo Gurus. Good times all round.

Years ago, back in the days of VHS tapes, I was given this heavy metal music video magazine type thing and there was this segment on this band called SHRAPNEL. Well, I think that was their name, they don’t actually say it in the video but I kinda put 2 and 2 together and that’s the best I could come up with by matching names to segments from the back cover to the segments in the video. Anyway, being a huge fan of skateboarding and the like, I saw this footage and became intrigued. Who are these guys? Where were they from? What did they release? and of course the age old question, where are they now?

So I decided to upload this video segment to see if we can get some intel and jog some memories of our LGL listerners & readership to see if we can find out more about these rockers or if any of you were at these famed parties they speak of…
