Great photo's by surfer/surf journalist/shaper and surf mat tailor-Paul Gross, taken in Australia 1974. Let's just say those roads to Byron/Lennox don't look so open anymore, Thanks PG for photos.

I just found this record at home, The Girl In The Chair, by Roots Of Madness, think it must have been a gift from Papa Jon Behar. In any case it's a pleasant rediscovery, sounding like the west coast answer to The Fugs.
The Roots existed from 1969 to 1973, and performed unannounced in laundromats and on freeway overpasses. Their sole rec, The Girl in the Chair, was pressed in 1971, in a run of 500 copies, 100 of which were distributed by the legendary Norm Pierce of San Francisco’s Jack’s Record Cellar. By the time the group recorded its last session in 1973, a total of 10 records had been sold.
