Tuncurry October 1976

Ram was playing at the Bellevue in Tuncurry for the long weekend back in October 1976. There was a procession on the Saturday morning for the Oyster Festival I think, so we painted up the Ram van with white shoe polish, got a few streamers and put it in at the end of the parade. We all got in with the back doors open and drove through Tuncurry and Forster throwing Minties to the crowd.

That night we only played about half the first set before a brawl erupted and they had to close the place down. The story even made the Newcastle Morning Herald on the Monday.
