Political & social issues stickers were a big thing. Here are a couple that never got stuck to anything. The lid of my turntable ended up espousing a number of social issues of the day (now in my neice’s possession), as did the fridges.

The last photo was taken after the cyclone that hit the local Rialto theatre in January 1995. Notice the fridge in the background. I, and a couple of friends had been watching a double bill of Clockwork Orange and Natural Born Killers when the cyclone hit (I still have a daybill of NBK from the night). The rain was so loud the soundtrack was turned right up. Then I heard a crack in the ceiling and grabbed a friend and ran to the exit. As the ceiling came crashing down we hid in the concrete emergency exit area. I went to open the door and it was half pulled off its hinges. At that point a piece of debris came flying just infront of my face. Almost took my head off. A few minutes later it was over and we all went back into the theatre. You could see the stars shining above the ruin of the seats, covered in timbers and building material. A very surreal moment and to process our near death moment we naturally had some celebratory drinks.
