The Australian Road Crew Association’s (ARCA) Desk Tape Series has released its latest edition, featuring The Party Boys live at the Tivoli, Sydney in 1987.
The Party Boys was formed in 1982 by Mondo Rock bass guitarist, Paul Christie, along with Australian Crawl’s James Reyne. The plan was for The Party Boys to be a part-time fun supergroup project playing rock classics and using a revolving door of known musicians when their respective bands were off the road.
The live tapes are made straight off the mixing desk and in this case by sound engineer, David “Strawb” Quinn.
ARCA Desk Tape Series was created to raise funds and resources for Support Act’s Roadies Fund to provide financial, health, counselling and wellbeing services for roadies and crew in crisis.
The latest tapes are available now on ARCA’s Black Box Records through MGM Distribution and on all major streaming services. Check out the latest recordings here.
