AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Writing about my experience of making music in Perth is a strange thing, because as soon as a 'scene' is bound and gagged by the written word it is finished, petrified, swept up into the Rolling Stone archives and forever considered 'history'. It might be revered and glorified, but it's still long gone. This could be a very restricting view to take on a community like Perth, which is still just as inspiring and productive as it ever was. I can't pretend to understand where 'music scenes' begin or end. It seems a futile and narrow-minded pursuit. So before I begin, I want to say that this is merely a reflective exercise. There was never a 'golden age', and if one does exist I can't see it, because it's floating all around, invisible and omnipresent.' (Publication summary)
