Re: Tribute to Martin Armiger, Stuart Fraser and Andrew 'Greedy' Smith
Martin Armiger I remember as being associated with the Sweet & Sour TV series in 1984. They could show the Countdown from August 19 1984 (which has not been shown on Rage) which was a Sweet & Sour/Takeaways based episode hosted by David Reyne.
Greedy was one of the nice guys of the 80s Australian music scene and his character never changed. It was good that Rage played a 3 hour tribute for him on Friday night. Greedy and The Mentals often hosted Countdown and the following episodes have never been shown on Rage before which could be a tribute in Retro Month.
August 15 1982
December 19 1982
June 26 1983
September 29 1985
June 21 1987
I think I recall Noiseworks being on Beatbox or The Factory but am not sure. The first time I saw the clip for No Lies on Countdown (October 19 1986) I remember the song being one that just stood out for a band I hadn't heard of at the time - great song, great clip and ultimately a great album.
Three more individuals who shaped my life in the 80's gone.
