No 27 - Footlight Music Charts USA (26 / 11 / 2005)

Premiere recording of this ground-breaking Australian musical which was the first musical to put a rock band in the pit. A funny, abrasive and confronting look at the teenage Bodgie and Widgie gangs of the late 50s in inner city Melbourne. With its themes of social belonging and acceptance, and the struggle of a generation of youth to find its place in society, the show is as relevant today as it was in 1966 when it first opened at the late lamented Emerald Hill Theatre.

Written by Australia's most prolific music duo, Peter Pinne and Don Battye, this new recording of the Magnormos Musical Theatre Reading (July 2005) features a top-class ensemble cast who bring this eclectic score to exuberant life.

"I haven't had so good a time at a musical this year. a classic." Owen Richardson, Sunday Age.
