Dislocated by both land and sea, Perth’s punk scene would nonetheless play a pivotal role in the development and global dissemination of punk rock in the 1970s. Set against the traditionalist context of Western Australia’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 1979, this study readdresses the birth of WA’s punk counterculture and its uneasy relationship with the State’s mainstream cultural narrative, as well as the genre’s enduring cultural legacy in Western Australia.
