In early 1983, this single flick 'Morning Mist, Rock Island Bend' by Peter Dombrovskis became incredibly influential over the Australian public - to the point where it may have decided the federal election that year in favour of Bob Hawke and the Labor Party. With the discussion about flooding the Franklin River in Tasmania raging and tipping toward building the proposed dam, this amazing time-lapse photograph appeared full-page in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age with the caption 'Could you vote for the party that would destroy this?'. I'm pretty sure I know which lever I would have pulled...... had I been alive.

Download a program from ABC Radio National fleshing out the whole story.

Our friend David Homer took some holga photos of us walking to Woolloomooloo (that's right 8x o!). It was a fun day out on the contact sheet..... click above if you want too much detail.

This flyer marks Gallucci's first ever gig in Sydney. Mother Nicastri can attest to the fact that it was loud and hard to understand..... Dig Deeper on 'We Jam Econo' Here.

Ever seen these photo-real, see-through, technically perfect, hand-crafted artworks that companies used for advertising in the 1970's & 80's? Ever thought they were lost in that era? I did. Turns out they're still at it, and it still blows my mind. Dig Deeper Here.

Our first album, Soca Punk! You can download it here - but we are really asking that you don't. This fair and reasonable review from Skratch magazine in the US comminicates it well;

"Confusion about Gallucci will eternally reign after listening and researching this band. You're left asking yourself, "Is this a joke? Are you serious?" Musically, this band is absolute chaos, as they create a mixture of grindcore and rock, trying to come across as art. Professionally, Gallucci is a trainwreck. On their disastrous Website, the band claims, "We recorded this album to find band members." So why am I wasting my time? Well, it's my job as a SKRATCH writer to look at all material objectively...but this has to be the biggest piece of wasted plastic to ever enter my mailbox. Avoid this band. -Luke Skywalker"

But, you will find Andy Cowland (from Further) on bass and Clint Hyndman (from Something For Kate) on drums - so I guess that's something. A beginning I guess - Amateur but Energetic. Certainly better than staying at home anyway.

The next important step in forming a band was to take some arty looking photos of ourselves, photoshopping in Dr. Adem Terrett as the 3rd arm...... Mission Complete!
