THE BOYS LIGHT UP by AUSTRALIAN CRAWL. Story by Darren ‘Smokie’ Dawson


About Darren Dawson

Always North.


  1. Andrew Starkie says

    The crawl were one of my first live gigs, down in the bool mid-80s. Do not receive the accolades they deserve. Maybe they need to find a ‘Horses’, ala Daryl.

  2. Great yarn Smokie. I used to love Aussie Crawl and still give their debut a whirl occasionally. Among my mates Indisposed achieved cult status. And I really liked Trouble Spot Rock from their final album.

    What an impact those first gig’s made! Mine was Midnight Oil at Memorial Drive.
