Notes"In the early 90's, five quiet lads from the beaches of Western Australia decided to start a band. This site is a dedication to the members, fans and crew of what could only be described as one of the most contraversial, ground breaking groups to ever come out of Australia. They firmly take their place in Rock'n'Roll history with their exploits remaining, till this day, the stuff of legend.
1990 at a party in Scarborough Hipper, Jono and Barney met for the first time. Music was discussed and then we stumbled on the idea of getting together for a jam. Jono and Hipper had been fooling around in garages for a while honing their skills so at least they had some idea musically what was required. Barney on the other hand had no vocal experience at all, except for one failed audition for a Van Halen tribute act. Drunk he had forgotten his lines and was ejected from the studio and urged never to return.. The bass shoes were quickly filled by John's close friend Nathan (Coxy) Cox. The four set about writing songs that reflected their times and lives. Drinking, sex and confusion.
A chance meeting between Hipper and Barney with the legend Billy Thorpe at a seaside hotel set their path in stone when the boys asked Billy for any pearls of wisdom to which he replied, "Whatever you guys do, just make sure you play it LOUD!"
When it came time for a band name the dictionary came out. Hipper's then girlfriend Bec offered a suggestion.The name Rawkus is the phonetic pronunciation of the Oxford concise dictionary English word Raucous, meaning harsh heavy sounding eg:squawk of a crow.
The word was agreed on , misspelt and a logo quickly developed.
The four peice soon realised a fifth member was needed to provide a dynamic to the already driving rythm, Dazza Mitchell filled the shoes for a short time and provided the group with a place to rehearse. A five track demo was p-lanned and they hit the studio. In a twist of fate Dazza was MIA on the recording session and the lead guitar was laid down by John Meyer of Rose Tattoo. With the demo complete it was obvious that Rawkus needed more..
To fill the role of lead guitar Rawkus scanned the local industry to find not only a musician but a character. The search was completed when Jeremy (Bozz) Boissevain entered the Rawkus picture. At the final of the Battle of the Bands in 1990 the eventual winners Helter Skelter defeated Rawkus for the title but their guitarist Bozz thought that Rawkus was more his thing. At the after show party Bozz met Barney, Dazza was dumped and the switch was complete.
The son of world famous artist William Boissevain. Bozza brought his ten years of classical training and distinct persona aboard the Rawkus machine.
Together they set course for a groundbreaking and memorable slice of music history.Through a vast array of influences from AC/DC to the Babies the music evolved as a classic blend of blues meets metal. They decided on the tag of "Blue Metal". From the outset it was determined Rawkus would be more than just a musical groupRawkus, but transgress beyond and into an international symbol of all things Rock'n'Roll...........................................
