    New Compilation Featuring The Coloured Balls, Skyhooks, Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, Tmg, Rose Tattoo, Rabbit, Hush, Stevie Wright, La De Das, Buster Brown, Taste And More! 23 Tracks Of Pounding '70s Aussie Rock!

    Following in the tradition of acclaimed compilations like 'Boogie!' and '(When the Sun Sets Over) Carlton', Festival Records present the ultimate aural and visual statement on the infamous Australian youth movement and gangs of the '70s.

    The Sharpies were a uniquely Australian working class phenomenon. Notorious in their day for their predication for trouble, these days they're remembered for their startling style sense and their outrageous dancing (as parodied by Magda Szubanski on Fast Forward in the '90s).

    The Sharpies of course loved their music, and 'When Sharpies Ruled' presents the best of their favourite local bands. A mixture of classic hits, fan favourites and some killer rarities (including a track by Rabbit, the band fronted by AC/DC's original pre-Bon singer Dave Evans), the collection is chock full of killer Aussie power boogie and glam thump.

    Package Includes Slipcase, A 28 Page Booklet And 60 Page Book, An Essay By Skyhooks' Greg Macainsh, Detailed Liner Notes And Over 100 Images!
