Since first plugging his bass into an amp as a Brisbane teenager, Tony ‘The Kid’ Robertson's loud, rock n roll journey spans 40-plus years. It's a journey that has seen him play with some of Australia's most iconic rock outfits. On show #158 of the Australian Rock Show, The Kid joins us for a lengthy interview, and we talk about everything...from the relentless gigging with Wasted Daze, his time in red-hot Brisbane band The 31st, playing pinball with the Ramones, before joining the Hitmen in the early 1980's. We also chat about his stints in the New Christs and Screaming Tribesmen, his work as an actor, and of course, talk a lot about The Naked Lunch - the outfit he formed in the mid-80's - who are set to release a new studio album shortly. All this plus lots more. Essential listening !
