The Oldfartsurfer has received further contributions from roving reporter, Rouge (OFSC No. 45). After the superb photojournalism in his previous article on the Bobby Brown Memorial Paddle Out and Single Fin Contest at Sandon Point, he has submitted some unique photos and a You Tube recording of his recent performance at the Bull & Bush jam night at Baulkan Hills in Sydney's west.

Going by name Open Mike, Rouge snuck into the pub and put his name on the list. He sent the attached photos and a link to the You Tube posting of the event with the following message:
"Bull n Bush jam night. Vocals/guitar - Nick. Bass - Tim. Drums - Anthony. Not bad considering (a) we've never played together, and (b) they'd never heard of the song. Taken from the dance production Catherine Wheel (Twyla Tharp, 1981)."The Oldfartsurfer's sources say that it is the best performance seen at the Bull & Bush since last year and certainly one of Rouge's greatest recorded solo live performances.

Followers of the Old Farts Surf Co. may remember that Open (Mike) was a former member of the infamous band Crosseyed & Painless who were regular performers at the Mt. Tom Price pub in the early 80's. The special 30th Anniversary release of the Crosseyed's seminal album "Live at Tom Price 1981" was reviewed by the Oldfartsurfer last year.
