Caroline-Julius-Glen-and-Jane-1982 Around 1981

With Caroline and I lurching towards marriage, we doted on her daughter Sarah and started planning our own production business. This picture shows my mate Glenn Bolton with his then gf Jane. Glenn's band Top Kat was where I learned to mix sound, usually at their Friday residency at the Chatswood Charles Hotel. It was the start of new-wave, punk was running hot, and ska music was emerging. Australia was embracing rock music and the beer barns were expanding. An exciting era.
