No Fixed Address will return to The Gov on Thursday 25 March to celebrate the renaming of Rundle Mall Laneway after the celebrated local band.
The Rundle Mall Laneway has been renamed as No Fixed Address Lane to recognise the band’s contribution to Adelaide’s music scene.
No Fixed Address formed in 1979 at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music and their music broke through in the 1980s during the land rights era.
Written from the perspective of Aboriginal Youth, their music resonated across the world as they shared their experience as an Aboriginal in Australia.
No Fixed Address has performed with big names including Cold Chisel, Men at Work, INXS, and international acts Peter Tosh, Ian Drury, and The Clash.
The band’s guitarist, Les Graham says, “No Fixed Address led the way into the rock ’n’ roll field of Australia for young up-and-coming Aboriginal bands. It wasn’t that easy an avenue to break into, the rock ’n’ roll scene in Australia and, for those overcoming racism, it was a hard rock ’n’ roll road.
“I am so honoured and feel so respectful that the City of Adelaide is going to name a laneway after the legendary band No Fixed Address,” he says.
Expect a night of pure entertainment of Aboriginal reggae as the band celebrates the launch of No Fixed Address Lane with special guests Paradise Club.
