The Bushwackers Live At The Dan O’Connell Hotel 1978 is the latest heritage release in the Australian Road Crew Association’s Desk Tape Series.

2022 marks the 50th anniversary of The Bushwackers. The band at La Trobe University in Melbourne in 1972, with guitarist Dave Isom, tea-chest bass player Jan ‘Yarn’ Wositzky and lagerphonist Bert Kahanoff. Long-time member Dobe Newton joined a few years later and has been with the band ever since.

Newton recalls the Dan O’Connell gigs. “Those nights were simply mega …and inspiring,” Dobe says.

“People had such a wonderful enthusiasm, leaping on the ceiling, on tables, swinging from metal struts, it was chaos but beautiful chaos.

“It was crammed, everybody sweated. It was a joy for everyone.”
