TAGG FIRST EDITION

My Rough Diamond Child

 Helmut Katterl finally convinced me to publish this little mag with him as a partner. It was a wild ride…



I thought this movie of the mag serves the purpose well as you can pause the pages if you choose to read the rock history of that era.


I want to add tracks that are pertinent to each issue of TAGG, so if you were in any of those bands I would love to hear from you and possibly send me any updates, requiems or current gigs, giveaways for current product, etc..


I’ve chosen Dave Hole, for it was his 3 piece from WA, along with the lounge room gigs fromMen at Work and The Fabulaires,  putting on my own Saturday afternoon gigs at The Waterside Hotel, featuring Dave Hole BandFlash Annie and the Floyd BoysThe Dead LiversBush Turkys and The Illegal Smiles that inspired the magazines publication.


You just couldn’t easily find out who was playing where or when.


TAGG told you what’s happening!
