Early days – Newcastle 1986

A great little snippet of Splinters performing Massive Love of Risk at the Mattara Festival in Newcastle 1986, featuring Stuart Vaskess and Patrick Troy, with musicians Kevin White and Lindsay Dunbar in the background. Camera: José Robertson. The parrot on Kevin’s shoulder according to Patrick flew in on the first day, stayed for the show, and flew away when they left. They called the parrot Theory.

This is the first of the videos processed by Craig Brown, who kindly offered to do an additional box that Patrick found in his mum’s garage. His company is called Slinky & Snudis, they do all manner of video production and design in Sydney, highly recommended of you want any work of this kind done at very good rates.

The Splinters archive is a case study for my research.
