What a bummer. Actually, it was even later than the 90s (sorry) ... probably 2002. I couldn't believe it ... a local suburban pub with a group and the whole place had a party vibe. I felt like I'd walked into a time capsule to the late 70s/early 80s in Sydney.

Many of the venues I played at and went to have disappeared altogether - the blocks where they were now occupied by malls and office blocks. Nearly all of the venues that remain no longer hire bands but have a big room full of shiny machines ...

Pretty amazing really ... that a big city can lose most of its character in just a few decades.
