2020.06.17 05:13 The_Plow_King The Disappearance and suspected death of 15 year old Jessica Small. Missing 23 years from New South Wales, Australia. A case highlighting the gross failings of Australian investigators and police.

For full disclosure I briefly worked on the Jessica Small case some years ago in the capacity of a legal research assistant in an inquest into gross mishandling of the case by Australian Federal Police and investigators (despite being reported missing on the day that she went missing, a police investigation was not conducted until some eight years after her disappearance and failed to follow up crucial witnesses and leads).
I found it absolutely fascinating and strange, and it's always stumped me that her disappearance isn't as widely known as others from Australia. Apologies for how long this one is but there's so much to cover, and also apologies that I'm not the best at writing things in an interesting way, hopefully you find the content interesting enough.
Background
Jessica Small was born in Perth on 27 July 1982. By all accounts she was a bright, fun loving, tenacious (if not troubled) 15 year old when she went missing during the early hours of 26 October 1997 in Baththurst, New South Wales, Australia after she and her friend Vanessa Conlan accepted a lift with a stranger driving a white Holden Commodore, who minutes later attacked them in Hereford Street.
Throughout 1997 and prior to her disappearance, Jessica's life had very little structure or stability. She had dropped out of school and did not have a job, and was not living at any one particular location, moving between the homes of extended family and friends. Her closest friend was Vanessa Conlan, whom she knew from high school, and who would be the last person to see Jessica before her disappearance. An insight into her dysfunctional home life can be seen from a statement given by Vanessa:
"She told me that she would fight with her mum a fair bit, [pretty] much about everything. [S]he would ask her mother for money and her mother would say "no". Jessica's mother would go into the shops about 3 times a week. A lot of the time would be to buy groceries but Ricki would more often [than] not end up at The Kings Hotel in George Street, Bathurst where she would spend all the grocery money on alcohol and get drunk. Then there would be no [money] left for groceries. There was never any food in the house to eat."
As a direct result of this lack of structure, investigators were required to piece together the events in Jessica's life in the days and weeks leading up to her disappearance in the early hours of 26 October 1997. This was made more difficult by the fact that this work was not carried out until some eight years after she had disappeared, when Strike Force Carica II was formed.
Timeline of the days leading up to her disappearance
  1. On 14 October 1997, Jessica travelled to Sydney with Vanessa to do some shopping.
  2. Around this time, but after the Sydney trip of 14 October 1997, Jessica spent some time in Orange with a friend, Ricky Vincent. In Orange, Jessica spent a few days at a flat occupied by Belinda and Brendan Forsman, before being asked to leave after an incident where Jessica apparently brought some young men back to the flat.
  3. By about Wednesday 22 October 1997 (3 days before her disappearance), Jessica returned to Bathurst. It was around that date that Jessica approached Mal Pollard (the owner of Amuse Me, a games arcade) and asked him to mind a bag, apparently of clothes, for her.
  4. Vanessa recalls bumping into Jessica in Bathurst after her return from Orange. Vanessa notes that Jessica had changed her appearance remarkably, in that she had cut her hair fairly short and had stopped wearing make-up.
The night Jessica went missing
In order to ascertain what occurred on Saturday 25 October 1997 police obtained statements from 30 to 40 witnesses who had seen or were known to spend time with Jessica in 1997. Unfortunately, with the passage of time and as many were under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, the recollections of what did occur on the night prior to Jessica's disappearance are in many cases hazy at best.
  1. Jessica and Vanessa went to the Amuse Me games arcade during the late evening.
  2. Jessica drank some alcohol that night two or three drinks, and got a "bit tipsy" but wasn't drunk.
  3. There were a large number of young people at Amuse Me that night, and Jessica and Vanessa spent time there playing pool and dancing to music. During the night, the group of friends, including Darren Mason, Chris Hogan and Sarah Thornhill, moved between Amuse Me and Kings Parade Park. A number of them were upset because Luke Hutchins’ uncle (“Hotsie”) had been found dead earlier the same night.
  4. Later that evening, Jessica and Vanessa got a lift with a friend Richard Dennis (“Frog”), to Ben Clarke's house (a couple kilometres from the CBD). However when they found that Ben Clarke was not home, they were driven back into town.
  5. After that, Jessica and Vanessa went to Mick’s take-away, but finding none of their friends there, they headed back to Amuse Me, which was by then closed. The two girls ended up near the Acropole Greek restaurant (on William Street) and were discussing whether they should go home to bed. They decided however, to go back to Ben Clarke’s place at Hereford Street.
  6. The girls began to walk along William Street towards Kings Parade Park, when they noticed a car go past them and then turn around and park on the opposite side of the road.
From what police have been able to ascertain, there were no other witnesses to the girls getting into the car that evening. Accordingly, the events as they unfolded can only be provided by Vanessa. Vanessa provided her first statement to police on 26 October 1997. Since that time she has provided a number of statements and given oral evidence to a coronial inquest. Her evidence has remained consistent throughout.
Vanessa's evidence and the man in the white Holden vehicle
Vanessa noted to police that the two girls had hitchhiked before. On this occasion, she approached the drive of the white four door sedan (which she later identified to be a Holden Commodore) while Jessica sat on a little wall in the park. She did not know the driver, and she spoke to him simply because it was "her turn."
The driver asked "how was your video games...and your games of pool" indicating that he had seen them earlier at the Amuse Me games arcade. He asked what they were up to and where they were headed. The two girls then got into the car, Vanessa in the front and Jessica in the back, and told the driver they wanted to go to Hereford Street. While driving along Hereford Street, Vanessa saw the light from houses at the end of the street and said to the drive something to the effect of - "see where that light is? Can you drop us off there?" to which he replied "yeah that I can do."
However, the driven then slowed and stopped the car on the side of the street when they were still several hundred metres from the house with lights, and in an area where there were no houses and no lighting. The driver had taken off his seat belt and brought the car to a stop alongside a wire fence. The driver then turned to Jessica who was seated in the back and said “Right, come here” to which Vanessa responded with “I don’t think so”.
The driver then put his hand around Vanessa’s throat and pushed her back into the seat – Jessica then opened her door, resulting in the driver letting go of Vanessa and reaching for Jessica. The two girls then attempted to flee the car. Vanessa describes having to “rip” her hair from the driver’s grip and startedscreaming and running in the direction of Ben Clarke’s house. She states:"Jess and I then started running off toward the houses in Hereford Street where Ben Clarke (Bunge) our friend lives. We were both screaming out for help at the top of our voices. Jess was running behind me. I knew she was behind me because she screamed out first. We were yelling out "help, help us" and also to Bunge. I heard Jess scream, "Help" but it was a long sound for help. Then I didn't hear anything more and I kept running. I didn't look back as I ran."
Vanessa then ran to the group of houses at the end of Hereford Street, believing, she said, that Jessica was behind her. She ran to one of the houses and banged on the window, waking the occupants. Police were then called. Sergeant McFarland and Constable Rooney drove Vanessa around various parts of Bathurst in an attempt to look for a white car matching a description she had given to police and Nathan Lavelle, namely that it was "like a Holden Commodore". The search for the actual car was unsuccessful. It was the evidence of both officers that they tested Vanessa's version of events throughout the night, and that there were never any significant changes to that version and that she remained consistent.
Failure to follow up key witnesses and evidence
Accordingly, bearing in mind the evidence of two police officers who between them at the time of Jessica's disappearance had many years' experience, who both claim to have accepted Vanessa as a witness of truth, it is hard to believe that so little was done. Such a canvass would have undoubtedly uncovered in a timely manner the possibly crucial evidence of :
  1. William Ross who was working at Amuse Me on the night that Jessica went missing. No statement was taken from Mr Ross until 2008, despite the fact that Mal Pollard18 had indicated to police the day after Jessica's disappearance, that Mr Ross had spoken to a man in Amuse Me who had taken a keen interest in Jessica19. Despite the lengthy delay in providing his evidence Mr Ross ultimately gave evidence to the effect that:
    1. He saw Jessica and Vanessa that night at Amuse Me and that Jessica was slightly affected by alcohol; and
    2. He spoke with a man in Amuse Me that night who seemed to recognise him. That the man looked about 34 years of age or maybe older and said he was working at the Oberon Timber Mill. He described the man as Australian, about 5 foot 8 inches tall, medium build with a bit of a beer belly and dark hair. He said the man was wearing jeans, joggers and a long sleeved buttoned shirt, between a cowboy type shirt and a flannelette shirt and that he had a set of keys hanging from his jeans on a little hook-on sort of thing. Mr Ross said that the man was looking at Jessica (who was dancing or making some noise) and said “Who’s that?...She looks like she’s out for a good time”. Mr Ross had told the man “That’s Jess”.
  2. Darren Mason who was a patron of Amuse Me on the evening of 25 October 1997. Mr Mason also only provided a detailed statement in 2008, despite his efforts to tell the initial investigators about this man in 1997, which he said were just "shrugged off"20. Mr Mason ultimately describes seeing a male with "a big build, with dark brown straggly shoulder length hair and wearing a red and black flannelette shirt and jacket"21; and;
  3. Sarah Thornhill, a friend who had attended Primary School with Jessica and had spent some time with her the night of her disappearance. Ms Thornhill provided her first statement to police on 28 April 2008 wherein she stated that she observed a man at Amuse Me whom she had seen in a white Commodore earlier that evening.
Further, the initial investigating police failed to take statements from witnesses who actually approached them in the days following Jessica's disappearance with information that they believed may have been possibly related to her abduction and disappearance. In particular:
  1. Mr Robert Fitzpatrick, who in 1997 lived at 34 Turondale Rd, Eglington, whose evidence can be summarised as follows;
Police took his number and said they would call him, but when he had not been called he went back in to the station and a detective spoke to him. He got the impression that the police did not want to take a statement from him. Mr Fitzpatrick's version of events is corroborated to some degree by two notes in the police records made on 28 October 199722 . No statement was taken from Mr Fitzpatrick until more than ten years after Jessica's disappearance, upon the commencement of Strike Force Carica II.

Mr Colin Cole also gave evidence that he contacted Bathurst police by telephone shortly after Jessica disappeared in 1997 to provide information to the effect that in the early hours of the morning on 26 October 1997, he was driving along the Sydney Road from Bathurst when a “dirty white” car (that he described as a Commodore with a louvre on the back window) came out of a street on his left, at high speed, with its headlights off. He said the car caused him to brake so hard that he stalled his car, and that the other car went onto the wrong side of the road. He said it then continued along the Sydney Road before turning right and heading towards Oberon, at which point the lights were turned on. He did not get the registration numbers and did not see the driver or any other occupant.
  2. Dianne Edmunds gave evidence that on 27 October 1997 she contacted Bathurst Police as she had observed the tail lights of a car going down the "bush track" that leads to a creek opposite her house. At the time she lived at “Stratford Cottage” at O’Connell, on the road between Bathurst and Oberon. In the time she had lived there she had never seen a vehicle using that track. She could not determine what type or make of car it was, but was concerned that it might be “young kids” drinking and partying.
  3. Ms Kayla Brien was just 11 years old when Jessica disappeared. On 29 October 1997 she and her mother made a report at Bathurst police station about Kayla being approached by a man in Bathurst streets on Saturday 25 October 199725. She had been staying with her dad at the time, had been very scared and only reported the incident to her mother when she had come to pick her up from her access visit. Her mother made her report the matter to police, realising its significance after hearing about Jessica's disappearance.
Destruction of potential forensic evidence
In 1998 some items of clothing were found by forestry workers in the Jenolan State Forest, near Oberon. They included a blanket, and various items of women's underwear. These items were given a preliminary examination about 12 months later and were then destroyed. Despite their possible significance to the Jessica Small case, it appears that no serious investigation was conducted to determine whether they may have been linked to Jessica. Indeed, Jessica's family were not even informed about the items until after their destruction.
Police name two people of interest: Andrew McBridge and Craig Robertson
It has been difficult to ascertain much about these people of interest bar the fact that both:
  1. Were possibly in the Oberon / Bathurst region around the time of Jessica's disappearance and had worked at the Oberon Timber Mill;
  2. Fit the general description given by the various witnesses who described an "older man" at Amuse Me on 25 October 1997;
  3. Possibly left the Oberon region just after Jessica's disappearance;
  4. PossiblyhadaccesstoawhiteHoldenCommodore;
  5. Had a predilection for younger looking women (in the case of Mr Robertson) or teenage girls (in the case of Mr McBride);
  6. Had a history of violence towards women; and
  7. Can not provide any clear evidence or alibi as to where they were the night Jessica disappeared.
Where to from here?
I don't contend that anything other than an abduction by the man in the white Commodore is what happened to Jessica. Does anyone know where to find more information on Andrew McBridge and Craig Robertson? A number of people have gone missing from Bathurst, New South Wales throughout the years.

2020.04.28 12:17 Fwoggie2 Covid-19 update Tuesday 28th April

Good morning from the UK. It’s Tuesday 28th April.

My wife got an email this morning from her travel insurance company; her coverage is about to expire apparently and the company wants to know if she wants to renew her travel insurance coverage. My wife says it's OK with her if we're uninsured for travel for a while...
(I had to resort to archive.is links today, sorry, the mod-bot was in a bad mood and it refused repeated re-submissions before I gave up and used archive.is instead to get around it).

I failed to mention yesterday that it was the humble shipping container’s 64th birthday; on 27th April 1956 Malcolm McLean loaded 58 trailer vans (what we now call containers) onto a converted world war 2 era oil tanker named SS Ideal-X and off it sailed from Newark to Houston. Watching it sail off into the distance, Freddy Fields, a top official of the International Longshoremen's Association was asked "What do you think of that new ship?" Fields replied, "I'd like to sink that sonofabitch." (Longshoremen are the people who load and unload ships). Longshoremen strikes ensued, but the cost of shipping dropped by a factor of 36 overnight. The age of the container had arrived and in a further visionary move McLean made available his container patents free of charge thus ensuring rapid adaption of global standards in relation to construction and size of the containers. McLean’s company (which ended up being called SeaLand) steadily grew and by the end of the 60s SeaLand was sending over 1,000 containers every month from the US to Vietnam alone for the US military. McLean parted ways with Sealand by 1977 but in 1978 his new company United States Lines placed construction orders with a shipyard for a then world record 4,400 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit, a standard measurement in the industry) shipyard. Unfortunately United States Lines went bankrupt shortly after, a victim of very high oil prices at the time.
Last week the Korean container shipping line HMM named its latest container ship HMM Algecerias. Its capacity is 23,964 TEU; more than 5 times the size of the ship McLean ordered 42 years ago. It may be a long time though before HMM Algecerias has a heavily laden voyage; currently there is massive overcapacity in the container shipping industry according to the American Journal of Transportation which clarifies that Maersk has a container ship fleet with a capacity of nearly 4.2m TEUs, MSC has 3.7m TEU fleet capacity while COSCO, CMA-CGM, Hapag Lloyd, ONE and Evergreen all have fleets with over 1m TEU capacity each. Between them (and other smaller operators), they’ve idled 9.2% of the world’s fleet in the past few months because there’s not enough cargo to fill the ships and make them operationally profitable. As for Malcolm McLean - he died in New York in 2001 but the Sealand name lives on as a division of Maersk (it bought SeaLand in Decembe 1999); today SeaLand operates in the Americas. Personally, for several years now I’ve fancied building a home out of shipping containers (much to the amusement of my wife). Maybe I should have a chat with her about it again; I reckon that suitable containers must be really cheap now.
Anyway…

Virus news in depth


Coronavirus: Anger after Panorama programme claims government 'failed to stockpile crucial PPE' - Yahoo News is reporting (as is pretty much every UK news outlet today) on a BBC Panorama show that was aired last night. (For the benefit of non Brits, Panorama is a flagship in-depth investigative program that’s over 50 years old and held in high esteem particularly for a 1995 interview with Princess Diana). There has been anger from health experts after an investigation revealed the government failed to stockpile crucial personal protective equipment (PPE) ahead of the coronavirus pandemic says Yahoo News.
BBC Panorama found there were no gowns, visors, swabs and body bags in the government’s pandemic stockpile when COVID-19 reached the UK. It said vital items were left out of the stockpile when it was set up in 2009 and that the government ignored a warning from its own advisers to buy missing equipment. The programme also claimed the government downgraded its guidance on the severity of COVID-19 as late as 13 March so it could provide a lower level of PPE to health workers. The programme, “Has the Government Failed the NHS?”, claimed the government counted single surgical gloves instead of a pair as one item of PPE with paper towels and cleaning materials such as bleach also counted as units of PPE. One health worker told the programme: “Calling us heroes just makes it okay when we die.”
(Cont’d) COVID-19 was officially designated a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) in January. In 2019, the Health and Safety Executive recommended that all healthcare workers wear a gown, FFP3 respirator mask and visor when dealing with HCIDs. But Panorama said the government downgraded its PPE guidance on 13 March to tell NHS workers they were safe to wear less protective aprons and basic surgical masks - and took steps to remove COVID-19 from its list of HCIDs on the same day. Rather than consult the experts who recommended categorising COVID-19 as HCID, however, the government instead asked its Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP), Panorama said. The programme claimed sources on that committee said the decision was, in part, a decision based on the low availability of PPE.
(Cont’d) Dr Gabriel Scally, a former regional director of public health and honorary professor of public health at the University of Bristol, said the programme was “totally damning” for the government. Labour MP Zarah Sultana said the programme “showed the incredible bravery of NHS staff”. Charlotte Villiers, professor of law at the University of Bristol, tweeted: “How the government can survive and stay in power following that is unfathomable. They are drenched with guilt.”
The episode in question is available to UK residents on iplayer.

Supply chain news in depth


**USDA (**US Department of Agriculture) let millions of pounds of food rot while food-bank demand soared - Politico reports that Tens of millions of pounds of American-grown produce is rotting in fields as food banks across the country scramble to meet a massive surge in demand, a two-pronged disaster that has deprived farmers of billions of dollars in revenue while millions of newly jobless Americans struggle to feed their families. While other federal agencies quickly adapted their programs to the coronavirus crisis, the Agriculture Department took more than a month to make its first significant move to buy up surplus fruits and vegetables — despite repeated entreaties. Images of farmers destroying tomatoes, piling up squash, burying onions and dumping milk shocked many Americans who remain fearful of supply shortages. At the same time, people who recently lost their jobs lined up for miles outside some food banks, raising questions about why there has been no coordinated response at the federal level to get the surplus of perishable food to more people in need, even as commodity groups, state leaders and lawmakers repeatedly urged the Agriculture Department to step in. Demand at food banks has increased an average of 70 percent, according to Feeding America, which represents about 200 major food banks across the country. The group estimates that 40 percent of those being served are new to the system.
(Cont’d) In mid-April, USDA unveiled a long-awaited $19 billion aid program with $3 billion set aside to buy excess food, a pot of money that would cover a major ramp-up of fresh produce purchases, along with dairy and meats. But federal officials predicted it would take the better part of a month before that food is packed and shipped to food banks and other nonprofits in need. At that point, it will be too late for many produce growers who saw a huge drop in demand right at the peak of their season. “By the time that comes through, it won’t help Florida,” said Brittany Lee, a blueberry farmer and executive director of the Florida Blueberry Growers Association. Blueberry prices are about half of what they were this time last year, she said. The precipitous drop in demand left many growers with no choice but to trash excess food or leave it in the fields because the cost of picking, packing and storing the crops would only put them further in the hole. Some with more resources in hand took on the cost of harvesting and donating the food themselves, but the gut-wrenching reality is that crops are being abandoned on an unprecedented scale.
(Cont’d) Paul Allen, co-owner of RC Hatton Farms, is currently disking hundreds of acres of cabbage — a process that grinds crops into the soil — because there’s simply no market for it. It's heartbreaking to watch, but the cabbage he grows is typically used for coleslaw at restaurant chains like KFC. Allen estimates he’s left about 8 million pounds of cabbage and 4.5 million pounds of green beans in the fields. “We’ve been devastated,” Allen said. His company has already donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of vegetables to food banks. The company also sent containers of produce to the Bahamas and paid for the cost of harvesting to make it all happen. Now, Allen says, he must decide how many of his crops are better left unpicked, not knowing when much of his customer base will be able to reopen for business. “Do I keep taking on more losses?” he said, noting that vegetable growers have already spent several thousands of dollars per acre before harvest. “But if I stop growing food for our country, that’s a bigger problem yet.”
(Cont’d) Produce industry leaders, including Allen, are also furious that USDA plans to impose payment limits for the rest of its aid to farmers affected by coronavirus. The department said in mid-April that agricultural producers would be limited to $125,000 per commodity or $250,000 total to help compensate them for damages as it hands out $16 billion in direct payments. “We begged them not to put a cap on it,” Allen said. Farmers who grow fruits and vegetables have extremely high costs per acre and often plant at such a large scale that the payments won’t even begin to cover their losses. It typically costs less than $700 per acre to grow commodity soybeans. It costs more than $4,000 per acre to grow cabbage. “What is fair is not always equal,” he said. While $250,000 is a lot of money for most Americans, it represents about one day's harvest for RC Hatton. The scale of produce waste is staggering. Farmers in Florida, which provides much of the fresh produce to the eastern half of the U.S. during the winter and spring, left about 75 percent of the lettuce crop unharvested, along with significant portions of the state’s sweet corn, cabbage and squash. Up to 250 million pounds of tomatoes could end up left in the fields, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. Florida officials estimate produce growers there have taken a half a billion dollar hit. In California, the industry is projected to lose more than $1 billion per month.

COVID - 19: The United States does not need to answer China On March 13, 2020, Reuters news agency quoted the tweet of Chinese
COVID - 19: The United States does not need to answer China On March 13, 2020, Reuters news agency quoted the tweet of Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian as saying 4 questions without giving any evidence:
1 Who is Patient No. 0 in the USA? 2. What are the names of the hospitals? 3. How many people are infected with SARS-CoV-2? 4. Could it be the US military that brought Covid -19 to Wuhan? At the same time, China spread the rumor that "the US team participating in the World Army Sports Festival held in Wuhan in 2019 may have accidentally or intentionally brought the disease into China." in the direction of China denying responsibility.
ANSWER 1, 2, 3
Medical Ethics / Code of Ethics and US law do not allow the disclosure or medical records to protect patients, except with subpoenas. Question 3 is not unique to the US, but France, Italy, South Korea ... all reported cases. In contrast, from the outset, the world asked who "Patient No. 0 in China" was but China was as conscious as flies.
QUESTION 4: WORLD ARMY SPORTS COUNCIL October 18, 2019
Military World Games, CISM for short, is the seventh convention held in Wuhan from October 18 to October 27, 2019. Xi Jinping came to the opening. The number of spectators attending depends on the capacity of the Wuhan City Stadium: 5,000 to 80,000. A full list of 110 participating countries is on Wikipedia, 10,000 athletes, 28 sports with hundreds of subjects from soccer, tennis, horseback riding, archery, swimming, judo ... jackfruit.
If 280 soldiers of the US military brought the virus to CISM, now it is not only the officials and the people but the athletes' force has already passed 6 shots. So far, no athlete has reported being infected with WuHan virus. In 110 countries, none of the countries had outbreaks in high numbers during 3 months (December 2019, January 20, 2020, and 2020) like Wuhan.
The six countries with the highest medals (gold-silver-copper) are China, Russia, Brazil, France, Poland and Germany. The US ranked 35 with 18 medals, Vietnam ranked 46 with the Syria with 4 medals
The first coronavirus case in VO HAN
Today, March 13, 2020, the South China Morning Post quoted data from the Chinese government that patient 0 could be a "55-year-old man from Wuhan City who was infected on November 17, 2019" (not stated. name or gender), exactly one month after the opening date of CISM October 18, 2019.
China DROP 5 TR. Where do the Chinese people go?
Exactly three months after the opening of the CISM sports festival on October 18, 2019, Wuhan City "organized a huge party on January 18, 2020 with 40,000 families participating to win a world record, and released. sending 5 million Wuhan people away while the epidemic is progressing fast. ” The world also asks where they go, where they spread ... China is as dumb as a grain.
January 23, 2020: More than three months after the opening of the CISM sports festival on October 18, 2019, among 5 million people "wandering" with a 66-67-year-old Chinese couple from Wuhan traveling to Italy Milan Malpensa International Airport. The airport is 51 km from the center of Milan, with 79,000 passengers a day.
According to wikipedia page, "2020 coronavirus pandemic in Italy", they went to Verona, to Parma. On January 28, they arrived in Rome, the next day had a cough and fever, was admitted to Spallanzani hospital to 118 people who tested and tested positive for Wuhan corona. Spallanzani Hospital did not disclose the patient's name.
The wiki may be deleted by someone, but the medical records of Italy and the world never erased the first case of corona infection.
VIRUS-MILAN OR VIRUS DRAWING?
The case of 17 Vietnamese 26-year-olds who has a thrilling route: 2/15: She traveled from Noi Bai to London, staying at the home of her 28-year-old sister. The two sisters went to Milan and Paris by high speed train to attend the fashion shows of the Gucci and Saint Laurent houses. March 1: Ms. 17 returns to Noi Bai, flight VN0054 Vietnam Airlines. March 5: Both sisters tested positive for Wuhan virus. The older sister claimed to have been infected with the corona virus during her stay in Milan.
February 22: Wikipedia "2020 coronavirus pandemic in Italy" records the Lombardy region of 81 cases, the first case of death, 4 days after the 17 sisters arrived in Milan, 30 days after Milan was infected from 2 Chinese tourists from Wuhan. So I kept calling coronaWuhan or VirusWuhan for it ... well, although the WHO General Director Tedros Ghebreyesus dodged China named COVID-19, even if the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs maliciously called Virus-Milan, Virus-Japan, virus-US, virus-Paris, virus-London, virus-Canberra ... guaranteed not to call Russia-Russia virus and swollen beak.
DO THE US NEED TO RESPOND TO CHINA'S REQUEST?
Is not! America, Japan, France, Australia, South Korea ... all need no reply. Because it is the habit of the "East Asian Lady" to always raise the tone of the voice of the superior to demand that all people prove it, because the first and quintessential principle of the free land law is that the person who condemns must give "accused" does not need to prove innocent. Not to mention China conceals information from all sides deserves to play the role of "accusation"? Not counting on January 27, 2020, President Old Trump spoke wanted to support China against coronavirus (Trump Offers China 'Any Help' to Fight Coronavirus) but Xi Jinping refused. China also sent WHO to ... Beijing to "research", ban them from going to Wuhan. .

2019.12.11 06:22 bobbyBobBobson9 It is advisable to go on the sydney melbourne coastal drive atm (regarding bushfires)?

Hi all, I'm from germany and atm together with my fiancee visiting australia. More precise we flew to sydney, staying here till 12th Dec, renting a camper, doing a trip with the target to be on 23th Dec in melbourne, staying there some days and finally flying back to germany. Atm we are allready in sydney and coarsly making our mind which route to take to melbourne. Taking the sydney-melbourne coastal drive seems to be not to fast to seek, but we are wondering how to deal with the bushfires, especially the currowan fire. According to https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/ the fire is stated as "advice" and "out of control". Also as far as i can see it's still possible to just drive through the area there are just some extra speed limit restrictions. But is it advisable to do so? Or should we just taking a the devision route about canberra. The only scheduled place and date atm is to be from 14th to 16th at tanja lagoon camp. I think starting at 12th in sydney and arriving at 14th in tanja makes both routes doable. Nevertheless our main goal is to avoid as much bushfires and "smokey regions" as possible.
We are thankful for every advice.

III. Operational history
Glasgow, maybe prewar
Glasgow was ordered on December 17, 1934 at the Scotts Shipbuilding Company in Greenock as part of the Royal Navy's expansion program. She was the 7th ship to bear the name, with the first being a Scottish 6th-rate ship and the 6th one being a 1910 Town-class cruiser. She was laid down on April 16, 1935 and launched on June 20, 1936 by Mrs. Lucy Baldwin, the wife of former PM Stanley Baldwin. Glasgow-chan joined the maid team on September 9, 1937 after being completed. She was assigned to 2nd Cruiser Squadron of the Home Fleet.
Glasgow spent the first years of her career uneventful with some naval exercises and "flag showing". In May and June 1939, Glasgow and her big sister Southampton escorted liner RMS Empress of Australia carrying King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on their Royal visits to Canada and the US before escorting them back to the UK on Empress of Australia's sister, RMS Empress of Britain (both belongs to Canadian Pacific Line). In July 1939, Captain Frank Pegram was appointed the commander of the ship.
With war being inevitable, on September 2, 1939, Glasgow was detached for patrol off Norway with Humber Force to intercept commerce raiders and blockade runners. The following day, Britain declared war on Germany, and on September 4, Glasgow and J-class destroyer Jersey (has got an episode on her, I can translate it may anyone want) intercepted German freighter Johannes Molken Buhr, which was later scuttled by her own crew. Glasgow was later sent to patrol in Skaggerak with her sisters Southampton, Sheffield-chan and Arethusa-class Aurora. However, due to Javelin-chan and Jersey-chan collided with each other, the mission was cancelled and they returned to Rosyth. 4 days later, Glasgow was sent to escort damaged submarine Spearfish back to her home base, during which, Glasgow-chan was attacked by enemy aircrafts without success.
With reports of Gneisenau in the area, Glasgow escorted Hood-neesan and Repulse in search for the new German battlecruiser. While returning to Britain, Glasgow and fellow sisters Southampton and Edinburgh was attacked by Luftwaffe's aircrafts, who dropped 120 bombs on them. Fortunately, Glasgow-chan wasn't damaged. Later on, Glasgow and Edinburgh escorted convoy KJ 003 made of 19 tankers from October 22 to 24. Towards the end of November, Glasgow joined 2 destroyers in search of German liner Bremen. She was then diverted to search for escaping Scharnhorst and Gneisenau in seek of revenging the sinking of armed merchant cruiser Rawalpindi. A week later, Glasgow took part in the unsuccessful search for American merchantman City of Flint, which had been captured by Deutschland. In December 1939, she escorted three convoys: HN 003, ON 004/1, ON 006/1 with another convoy, ON 007/1 in early January.
Glasgow was transferred to another maid team, the 18th Cruiser Squadron on January 7, 1940. There, along with Newcastle, she escorted 6 convoys in January 1940. Glasgow captured German trawler Herrlichkeit off Tromsø on February 12 before returning to Belfast for repairs 5 days later, which last for a month. After repairs were completed, Glasgow-chan returned to action, just as the German was launching Operation Weserübung. On April 7, Glasgow sailed with Berwick, Portlandshire and York to intercept German warships in the area. Two days later, Glasgow-chan and her fleet was attacked by German Ju 88 and He 111 bombers off Bergen, which scored two near misses. The near misses caused minor flooding to the ship, knocking out her "A" turret and killed 2 of her crew. Things were worse for her teammates as Tribal-class destroyer leader Gurkha was sunk during the air attack. After this, Glasgow-chan was detached with Sheffield to Britain for repairs on the following day. While en route, they was involved in another air attack, with no damage sustained.
After a very short 22-hour repair, Glasgow was assigned with Sheffield and 6 Tribal-class destroyer leaders to land troops in Harstad and Namsos as part of Operation Henry and Harry. Galatea joined Glasgow and Sheffy in Operation Sickle, the landing of the 15th Infantry Brigade in Åndalsnes on April 23. 6 days later, Glasgow embarked the King of Norway, King Haakon VII and Crown Prince Olav, Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Halvdan Kolt and Minister of Defense Birger Ljungberg. Under the escort of Jackal and Javelin-chan, Glasgow arrived in Scapa Flow on May 1. Later that week, Glasgow embarked the Royal Marines at Greenock and carried out the initial occupation of Iceland during Operation Fork. The Marines disembarked at Reykjavik on May 10, under the protection of heavy cruiser Berwick, Glasgow as well as two F-class destroyers Fearless and Fortune. They carried out patrols in Iceland before sailing back to Liverpool for some refit. During her month-long refit in Liverpool, Italy declared war on Britain, and so on June 10, Glasgow's crew captured Italian freighter Gambiano.
Underway in the Mediterrenean
Returning to action in July, Glasgow-chan joined her big sister Southampton and the Salty Sussex and Shropshire. However, in the thick (bloody) British fog off Duncansby Head on July 16, our careless little maid collided with destroyer HMS Imogen. The collision caused extensive fire abroad and heavy flooding to the little destroyer. Imogen had to be abandoned and later sank. The incident resulted in nineteen of Imogen's crew and two of Glasgow's lost their lives. After rescuing the I-class destroyer crew, Glasgow returned to Liverpool and stayed there 3 months for repairs.
Late October 1940 saw Glasgow escorting Arklolicon and Barham to Gibraltar. There, she joined Force X to transport troops to Malta. After arriving in Malta on November 7, Glasgow joined the 7th Cruiser Squadron. She screened Lusty in her raid on Italian fleet in Taranto. 3 days later, Glasgow, along with Berwick, Gloucester and HMAS Sydney landed 3,400 troops in Piraeus, Greece. Later that month and in early December, Glasgow-chan escorted convoys MW 4 and ME 4 with Force E and Force F. While anchored at Suda Bay in Crete on December 3, Glasgow was attacked by a Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 flown by Italian ace Carlo Emanuele Buscaglia. 2 torpedoes hit the British cruiser, knocking out her propellers. Therefore, Glasgow-chan was sent to Alexandria for temporary repairs in January 1941.
Damaged Glasgow was sent to the Indian Ocean in early 1941 to protecc convoys from potential enemies. On February 15, Glasgow escorted some 4 landing ships through the Suez Canal. Later on, she was deployed with Hermes, (the salty) Shropshire, Emerald and her sister Enterprise (the British E-class cruiser, not the American legend Enty or Belfast x Enty, okay?) and Australian heavy cruisers Australia and Canberra to search for German cruiser Admiral Scheer, who had just sunk Canadian freighter Canadian Cruiser and AMC HMCS Rantaupandjang (Rawalpindi's little sister). On February 22, one of Glasgow's two Walrus spotted Admiral Scheer. However, fuel shortages prevented them from chasing down the German raider. A month later, Glasgow was deployed with Caledon, two K-class destroyers and two Indian trawler to provide support for the invasion of Italian Somaliland, as part of Operation Appearance.
After the successful landing in Somaliland, Glasgow joined HMS Cornwall, Portlandshire, Phoebe and HMAS Canberra as escort for convoy WS 6 from April 10-13, later relieved by C-class cruiser Colombo. Later in April, Glasgow relieved old heavy cruiser Hawkins to escort WS 7 until May 7. Our maid was sent to search for German commerce raider Pinguin later in May. From June 1941 to February 1942, Glasgow joined in convoy defense operations and escorted convoys WS 11 and WS 12. Another friendly fire incident occurred at midnight on December 9, 1941 when our careless maid opened fire with her 6-inch on friendly Indian patrol ship Prabhavati, mistaken her for a surfacing Japanese submarine. Prabhavati was sunk and Glasgow had to rescue the ship's survivors and sent them to Bombay.
With Enterprise in Singapore, 1942
In March, Glasgow escorted convoy WS 16 with her sister Newcastle. On April 1, she was relieved by Colombo and armed merchant cruiser Aleunia so that she can move to the US for repairs in April. Arriving in Brooklyn Naval Shipyard in New York on May 6 after a passage through Mombasa, Glasgow went through a month-long repair before returning to Britain. There, she was equipped with a new Type 284 fire-control radar and Type 271 airborne warning radar. New Oerlikons were also equipped to Glasgow-chan. She returned to Britain in August and arrived at Scapa Flow on September 3, 1942.

Upon arrival, Glasgow-chan was reassigned to the 10th Cruiser Squadron of the Home Fleet and assigned to the task of escorting British convoy bound for the Soviet Union. After some period of retrain and repairs lasted until December 1942, Glasgow was ready for action by the beginning of 1943. On January 20, 1943, Glasgow-chan was deployed with Bermuda and the salty cruiser Kent (hey shikika..) to screen Convoy JW 52 and returning convoy RA 52. She then patrolled around Icelandic waters and was involved in a minor incident on February 23. While anchoring at Seidisfjord, heavy weather dragged Glasgow and she was grounded. After a short repair, Glasgow-chan escorted King George V and her sister Howe to provide distant escort for homebound convoy RA 53 from Kola Inlet. Later in March, Glasgow encountered German blockade runner Regensberg carrying rubber, tungsten and many valuable goods from Japan. Unwanted to get their valuable supplies got captured by the also material-hungering Britain, the crew of Regensberg scuttled their ship. In heavy weathers, only 6 of the runner’s crew survived and was rescued by Glasgow. After some patrols in the Arctic, Glasgow was sent to a warmer place, the Southwest Approach to hunt for German blockade runners and commerce raiders.
In Scapa Flow, date unknown, maybe during her second deployment to the Arctic in late 42- early 43
The first action where our maid was involved was some action against French coastal shipping on June 12 with Crown Colony-class cruiser Bermuda, who joined Glasgow during JW 52. A week later, Glasgow escorted carrier Archer and corvettes of Escort Group B5 to hunt for submarines from Brest. By the end of the month, Glasgow provided Ocean Escort for minelaying operation of the 1st Minelaying Squadron in Northern Barrage. In late July, Glasgow joined Canadian destroyers HMCS Athabaskan, Iroquois and Polish destroyer ORP Orkan for assault patrols in the Bay of Biscay. After operations in the Bay of Biscay, she was anchored at Devonport Dockyard for repairs that last for a month, where her Walruses and catapults got removed to make room for additional Oerlikons and she was fitted with the new Type 283 Fire-Control Radar. She also had a new commander, Captain Charles Clark. On October 26, 1943, Glasgow embarked First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham and undertake the internment of the ashes of the old First Sea Lord, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Dudley Pound, who have just passed away on October 21 off Nab Tower. After that, she participated in Operation Tunnel series of attacks on French coastal shipping in November 1943. In December, Glasgow and Gambia took part in Operation Stonewall, the interception of blockade runners returning to occupied French from Japan. After 2 weeks of patrol, a Sunderland flying boat sighted German blockade runners Alsterufer, who was carrying precious Tungsten and rubber on December 27. Thus, Glasgow, Enterprise (again the E-class), Penelope and Ariadne were sent to capture the merchantman. This would lead into the Battle of the Bay of Biscay.

The Kriegsmarine sent two flotillas to escort Alsterufer home: the 4th Torpedo Boat Flotilla consisted of torpedo boats T22, T23, T24 and T26 and the 8th Destroyer Flotilla consisted of Niimi-chan and her sisters Z24, Z27, Z32, Z37 and two torpedo boats T25 and T27. By 04:00 on December 28, the two German flotillas were waiting south of Cape Clear, but Alsterufer was nowhere to be seen. Unknown to the German, the blockade runner was sunk by Liberator bombers from Czechoslovak No. 311 Squadron and the No. 86 Squadron. By midday, the two German flotillas met each other. One hour later, they were spotted by Allied aircrafts. Meanwhile, a Fw 200 Condor bomber detected Glasgow and Enterprise, and attacked them. As they were detected, Glasgow changed her course towards the Northeast. At 13:32, from a range of 16 miles, Glasgow-chan detected the German destroyers. Captain Clark ordered Glasgow to open fire at Niimi with her “A” and “B” turrets, guided by the newly installed Type 273 radar. Enterprise followed some few minutes later. In the first minutes of the battle, though being targeted, Niimi wasn't damaged. Our Soviet German protagonist launched 6 of her torpedoes at a range of 17,000 meters. Niimi-chan and her sister Z24 returned fire with their 15 cm, almost hitting Glasgow and Enterprise. At 14:05, Glasgow was hit in the “A” boiler room by either of the destroyers, killing two seamen who were manning the pom-pom and further wounded three. By 14:18, both German flotillas was involved in action. High seas prevented the torpedo boats from launching their torpedoes, so only destroyers Z32 and Z37 could launch their torpedoes at Glasgow. With 10 torpedoes heading for her, Glasgow-chan had to take evasive maneuvers. Glasgow was almost hit by a torpedo as she and Enterprise was baiting them. After the second torpedo run, the German boats laid smoke turned away.
During the Battle of the Bay of Biscay, Dec. 28 1943
At 14:35, Glasgow reversed her course to chase down the retreating German. By this time, Glasgow and Enterprise was separated after the torpedobait and was acting independently. The German launched another torpedo attack against the charging British cruisers, whilst the two British were keeping accurate 6-inch shots. At around 14:38, after firing her first salvo of torpedoes, Z27 was critically damaged by a 6-inch shell from Enterprise, causing fire and slowing the German destroyer down. After being hit, Z27 launched the second salvo of 4 torpedoes, however, just like the first salvo, no torpedoes hit the British cruisers.
Meanwhile, Glasgow was concentrating her fire on torpedo boat T25. The little *Elbing-*class torpedo boat was hit in her aft torpedo tubes area, killing many of her crew. A second shell hit T25’s funnel, immobilize her. Being a sitting duck at that moment, T25 requested her big sis T22 to cover for her. In the meantime, Glasgow shifted fire towards T25’s sister, T26. T26 was bracketed by near misses from the accurate radar-guided guns from Glasgow and was critically hit with a shell right into her boiler room at 14:40, slowing the ship down. T22, trying to help her crippled sister, was focused by Enterprise, who hit her with shells and fragments from the near misses. After firing her 10.5 cm guns and all of her torpedoes, which proved harmless to the cruisers, T22 laid smoke and retreated.
Enterprise finished off the crippled T26 at 14:45 with a single torpedo whereas Glasgow hit Z27’s magazine at point-blank range, sinking the drifting destroyer in a large magazine explosion which killed most of her staff. Enterprise fired her guns and a torpedo, which reduce T25 to a burning and sinking wreck by 14:50. The British cruisers, low on ammunition and fuel, withdrew towards Plymouth.
The Battle of the Bay of Biscay was a complete victory for the British. Glasgow and Enterprise sank a destroyer (Z27) and two torpedo boats (T25 and T26) and further severely damaged another TB, T22 while receiving minimal damage to themselves. 532 Kriegsmarine’s sailors were killed during the battle, further lowering Kriegsmarine's morale after Scharnhorst was sunk in the Battle of the North Cape 2 days earlier. The failure in Bay of Biscay and North Cape marked a sour end of 1943 for the German. From then on, in addition to the lost of 3 blockade runners in the South Atlantic, Germany could only trade with her only real ally, Japan, via small little submarines, hampering her supplies.
After the Battle of the Bay of Biscay, Glasgow and Enterprise withdrew to Britain. En route, they were attacked by He 177 armed with Fritz-X Glider bomb on December 28. Neither of the ship was hit, however. They arrived at Plymouth the following day. Glasgow was repaired for some weeks before returning to defend convoys MKF 026, MKF 028A and MKF 029 from mid January to mid-March.
Bombarding Cherbourg, June 25, 1944. USS Quincy in the background
In April, Glasgow joined US Western Task Force consisted of USN battleships Texas and Arkansas, Free French cruiser Montcalm and Georges Leygues, nine USN destroyers and three Royal Navy Hunt-class destroyers. During Operation Neptune, they took part in bombardment exercises in Cape Wrath. On D-Day (June 6, 1944), Glasgow took part in the bombardment of the Omaha Beach with ships of Force C. She continued this action until June 20, when her squadron was detached to bombard the port of Cherbourg. After returning to Portland on the following day, Glasgow again joined her peer Enterprise, US battleship Shounen Nevada and two Pacific veteran Tuscaloosa and Quincy in Task Force 129. Together, they carried out the bombardment of Cherbourg on June 25, which Glasgow was hit by two shells from shore batteries, damaging her electrical system. On June 30, Glasgow withdrew to Belfast for a nine-month-long refit. During the time, Glasgow-chan was fitted with new radars and additional anti-aircraft armament. Her “X” turret was removed in favour of additional Bofors.
After a long refit, Glasgow was back in action by May 1945. By this time, Germany had surrendered, so she was transferred to the Indian Ocean to fight the already desperate Japanese Empire. On August 22, 1945, Glasgow sailed with Jamaica to the British East Indies Fleet. By this time, Japan had got nuked and was preparing for surrender.
On October 5, 1945, Glasgow relieved Phoebe as the flagship of the 5th Cruiser Squadron. After serving in the Indian Ocean for two years, she steamed back to Portsmouth and was put into reserve. Later in September 1948, after being recommissioned for active service, Glasgow was appointed the flagship of the British West Indies Station. She attended the Halifax bicentenary celebrations in Nova Scotia in 1949. In October 1950, she returned to Britain and was refitted at Chatham before being transferred to the Mediterranean Fleet in 1951. Glasgow was appointed the flagship of the Malta station, under Admiral the Earl Mountbatten of Burma.
Lord Mountbatten aboard Glagow, 1952
2 years later, she and her crew took part in film “Sailor of the King” as the fictional cruiser HMS Cambridge. In the same year, Glasgow-chan took part in the Fleet Review to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Together with Town-class cruisers Gambia and Bermuda, new cruiser Eagle, seven destroyers, Glasgow-chan escorted the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh aboard Royal Yacht HMY Britannia on their world tour when they arrived at Malta on May 2, 1954. With Gambia, she took part in the withdrawal of the 40th Royal Marines Commando Brigade from Port Said, Sudan, giving the independence to the African nation.
In 1955, after 5 years of serving in Malta, Glasgow returned to Britain and joined the Flag Officer D Flotilla of the Home Fleet. In late 1955, Glasgow-chan was decommissioned in Portsmouth. However, with the Suez Canal Crisis in 1956, she was temporary called back before being officially decommissioned in November 1956. Glasgow was considered a surplus at the time of economic hardship and the budget was tight, so she was put on the disposal list in March 1958. In July 4, 1958, Glasgow was sold to BISCO for scrapping and left Portsmouth. She was broken up on July 8, 1958 at Hughes Bolckow’s yard in Blyth.
IV. In Azur Lane
In-game Glasgow
Glasgow was put into the game in the mid-November update. She is a Rare ship which can be obtained through the Light Construction Pool with a build time of 01:25:00. Upon her introduction, there was a short period when her Construction Rate was increased for 2.5%. Glasgow is still unvoiced.
Similar to most light cruiser, Glasgow-chan has three equipment slots for CL Guns (115%->135%), Torpedoes (120%->130% and Anti-Air Guns (110%) . Glasgow has two class-specified Assault Skills: “Full Firepower” which increase her own firepower and “All Out Barrage” which triggers her class’ barrage. She also has a Defensive Skill, “Swift Defender” (related to the fact that she defended many convoys?) which reduces damage dealt to the fleet.
In the wiki, there is something wrong with the translation of her Self Intro line as Glasgow could never taken part in the Battle of the North Cape, as she was busy fighting the German destroyers off France when the battle occurred. Also in her Self-Intro, she mentioned having bad eyesight, related to the fact that she rammed and sank Imogen in foggy weather and mistook Prabhavati for a Japanese loliboat. (So, buy her glass :> ). Secretary 1 and 2 referred to her sisters Newcastle and Sheffield. Glasgow also have Additional Lines when sortieing with her sisters Sheffield, Edinburgh, Belfast, Newcastle and her big sis Southampton.

2019.11.30 06:01 Rumbuck_274 Does your jurisdiction accept dashcam footage from the public to help investigate traffic crimes?

So this question stems from my own experience, that being that dash and are pointless in most cases unless you're getting them in HD (1080 or 4k) and for insurance.
Now I regaled this story earlier and was told "Maybe you just met some lazy cops", so I thought I'd ask here.
Anyway, I spent about a month after getting my new dashcam (Time and Date Stamps, GPS Stamps, Speed Overlay, etc) collecting footage of people doing stupid speeds, running red lights, cutting people off, just being dicks on the road.
I sat down and eliminated the ones where you couldn't get POSIDENT on the vehicles, cos that's a waste of time, burned about 4 hours of footage in over 100 clips to a disc and wandered down the local station (In Canberra greater region, ACT, Australia) in roughly November 2014.
"No sorry, we don't accept dashcam footage" was the response given at the desk. When I enquired as to why not,they said it was "too easy to fake"
Now, I'm not buying into all the stuff on CSI, but don't the police have specialised departments in most major cities that deal with whether videos are doctored? Or at least one in the State for that police force? So like, all NSW Police handle all of the stuff for NSW Police.
Either way, I was a bit blown away, in one of them a kid nearly fell out of a car because the door swung open on the highway, but not interested.
So the question is, if someone walked into your station wherever you are in the world,with a CD full of idiots in cars they'd got on their dashcam, would you/can you accept it?

2018.11.14 06:09 thril_hou Todd Carney. This is your unknown life.

Todd Traveling Carney was born on the 2nd of June, 1986 in Goulburn. Not much is known about Todd’s childhood, primarily because social media was yet to be invented.
It is believed that Todd played sports as a child and may have received some limited formalised education. Todd got his first tattoo at the age of 7. His dad’s name, phone and fax number were all tattooed on his neck because little Todd had a habit of running away during family outings.
The word ‘Daryl’ is still visible on Todd’s neck; the other contact details were covered over at a later date by a tasteful and thought-provoking image of a pigeon eating a slice of pizza, a homage to Todd’s favourite animal and food.
As a youngster Todd was renowned for his speed, believing he could ‘outrun’ the freezing Goulburn winds. He also possessed impressive grip strength, developed by spending hours dangling from the prominent testicles of The Big Merino, located on the corner of Hume and Sowerby Streets.
In 2004 at the age of 17, he debuted for the Canberra Raiders, after impressing Coach Matt Elliott at training. On selecting Carney, Elliott stated ‘his training is impressive’. Todd won the 2004 Reschs Real Raiders Rookie Of The Year award, narrowly beating out quality candidates such as Alan Rothery. The award came with a years supply of Reschs, which the 17 year old had exhausted by the start of pre-season training a month later. A spokesperson for Reschs said sponsorship of the award was the most regrettable business decision the company had ever made and the primary factor in the company’s downfall and eventual restructure.
In 2005 Todd managed 11 games and 1 try for the Raiders. Coach Elliott could see from an early age that Todd needed guidance and a positive role model in his life, so Todd was wisely mentored by teammate Jason Smith.
In January 2014 Smith, the former Queensland State of Origin star, was charged with trafficking cocaine in south-east Queensland. Smith pleaded guilty to eight charges of possessing more than two grams of cocaine and was sentenced to three years imprisonment.
In 2006 Todd was named captain of the Junior Kangaroos, and established himself as a star in the Raiders first grade team. He was the Raiders joint leading try scorer (alongside Qld legend Adam Mogg) with 12 tries in 18 games.
After a mentoring session with Smith in Goulburn, Todd was arrested for the first time on drink and reckless driving charges. He was suspended from driving for 5 years.
2007 was when things began to go wrong for Todd, and oh so right for the journalists and punters starting to take an interest in this bad boy from Goulburn.
Todd was ineligible for NSW Country selection because on 18 May 2007, 1 year in to his 5 year driving suspension, Todd drove a ute belonging to teammate, Steve ‘The Croc’ Irwin.
Police pursued Todd and The Croc after noticing the ute fishtailing around a corner.
Despite the police sirens sounding and lights flashing, Todd and The Croc refused to stop and led police on a high-speed chase through the back streets of the Canberra.
After turning into a dead-end street, he stopped the car and fled the scene on foot, leaving The Croc in the passenger seat. The Croc immediately ratted Todd out, telling police that Carney was the driver.
The next morning, Todd turned himself into the police.
In June 2007, Todd appeared at the ACT Magistrates Court pleading guilty to the charges of failing to stop when directed by police, negligent driving and driving while disqualified. No drink driving charges were laid because Todd legged it from the scene of the crime. ‘No evidence, no proof #lawyered’ was Todd’s My Space status at the time.
He was spared jail, but the Court placed him on a 12-month good behaviour order and banned him from driving until 2012. He was also sentenced to 200 hours of community service, which he spent re-mixing the Raiders theme song and performing it at aged care homes.
The Magistrate warned Todd that if he were to commit another offence he would, “undoubtedly go to jail.”
Controversially the Raiders sacked The Croc (who was not charged with any offences over the incident), but retained Todd.
Oh, and Todd was the Raiders' top try-scorer for the 2007 season.
2008 comes along and Todd re-signed with the club until 2010. Leaked minutes from the Board meeting endorsing his contract upgrade included the quote from an unnamed Director: ‘what’s a little neg driving between friends’.
Todd celebrated his new contract by going out to a Canberra ‘nightclub’, All Bar Nun, and pissing on the head of a bloke standing next to him in the urinals. This was when Todd first noticed he had abnormally strong pubococcygeal muscles, which he used to great effect and much hilarity each time he relieved himself. The nightclub victim had to undertake intense and prolonged counselling to overcome the trauma of the incident, and also had to go home to shower and get a new shirt.
While the allegations were investigated, Todd was suspended from playing, training and weeing on other people. The complaint was withdrawn two-days later, after the victim has visited at home by two muscular, tattooed, OLMCG affiliated ‘professional persuaders’.
When old mate Steve ‘The Croc’ Irwin got wind of this, it sparked renewed interest in Todd's 2007 negligent driving charges. The Croc outrageously claimed that Todd was also intoxicated whilst driving at the time of the 2007 incident, and was pressured by the Raiders to remain quiet, in an attempt to avoid a jail sentence for Todd.
A Raiders spokesperson was quoted as saying ‘The Croc needs to shut-up and go back to playing mediocre footy for Mounties, scratching out a meagre existence before falling in to obscurity entirely’.
The latest incident led to the club imposing an ultimatum on Todd which included a five-point plan.
Todd had to agree to:
• Stand-down from training and matches for the rest of the season.
• Go on an alcohol ban until the end of 2012.
• Undergo counselling.
• Complete a community service programme.
• Pay a $20,000 fine.
The NRL threatened to de-register his contract for two-years, if he did not accept this plan.
Todd looked over the plan that night during the ads of Home and Away. After careful consideration he asked for a variation of the plan where he could avoid points one and two lol.
The club finally woke up and said ‘yeah, nah’, sacking poor Todd and terminating his $400,000 a season contract. The NRL also de-registered him until the end of 2009.
Todd took the decision quite well, going out on a casual petty vandalism spree and blaming it on his mate. After a night of drinking he was questioned by the police about a smashed door of a Goulburn Fone Zone shop (coincidentally a Raiders major sponsor).
Todd was asked later about this incident and gave the following response (this is true):
"There's this kebab shop around the corner and I was there talking to these two girls for about half an hour," he said.
"All of a sudden my mate started punching the door. Then he started running at it. It didn't break. But it sort of collapsed. He was gone by the time the cops showed up. They took statements from everyone who saw it.”
"I didn't tell them who it was because it was my mate."
"I don't know [why he did it]- he's just a lunatic. He doesn't play rugby league. He's a local guy I've known from Goulburn. He plays AFL."
After three hours of questioning, Todd was released without charge.
Happy 2009! We pick up the story with an unemployed Todd still kicking it at his old girl’s place in Goulburn. In February Todd is arrested again, after CCTV footage captured him and another man damaging a car in Goulburn by jumping on the roof and bonnet.
Todd is given a 12 month suspended custodial sentence for this offence, with the judge also making the extraordinary decision to ban Todd from living in Goulburn for the next year. Todd joined esteemed company in this regard – the only other people in history to receive a Goulburn residency ban are Ivan Milat, Sam Newman and Tracey Grimshaw.
Unable to go home to hug his mum or collect his X-Box, Todd moves to Far North Queensland to play footy with the Atherton Roosters. He starts work in a pub, where he learns the trade secrets to adopting a high-functioning alcoholic lifestyle.
Todd made a good impression in Atherton, only being assaulted once by four-men in May. One of those men was former Cowboys, Broncos and London Broncos' player, Nick ‘The People’s Champion’ Slyney.
Also in 2009 – nude photos of Todd were found on a phone lent out to a customer from a Telstra shop. Todd had been swapping nudes over Facebook and was at a loss to how they ended up on the phone. Telstra apologised for the incident, saying they regret not selling the images to TMZ for a small profit.
Todd started tearing up the comp while at Atherton, dominating the washed up has-beens and 16 year old kids. He impressed so much, he signed a 3 year deal with the Sydney Roosters from 2010.
Todd celebrated this new contract (there’s a theme emerging) by going out camping at Airlie Beach and setting a mates pants on fire, burning the dudes buttock, scrotum and upper thighs.
This was not investigated further by police as the victim did not formally complain, saying ‘it was just a funny prank bro. It was only third degree burns, not first degree’.
Todd started his Roosters career in Sydney by playing fullback, until he was switched to the halves in Rd 14. He finished 2010 2nd on the competition points scoring and goal kicking lists, won the Dally M player of the year, Dolly Magazine’s Hunkiest Footballer 2010, the Dally M 'Five-Eight of the Year' and the Provan-Summons Medal ('People's Choice') Award. He also received the Rugby League International Federation's 'International Player of the Year Award' for 2010.
While celebrating his successful 2010 season, Todd broke ribs and suffered internal injuries falling from a balcony in December. He had locked himself out and was climbing up the outside of the apartment complex. Neighbours reported him yelling out ‘Hey look at me, I’m super-spider man’ before the incident.
It is now 2011, and Todd is starting his second year at the Roosters. It has been nearly 2 years since his last arrest. Todd proceeds to drink 8-10 beers and goes to meet with his Financial Advisor. On the way he was arrested and charged with low-range drink driving.
The Roosters stated they would stand-by him through this indiscretion, with Todd publicly swearing he would get off the booze and vowing to attend Alcoholics Anonymous.
Cheeky Toddy actually had his fingers crossed in his pocket when he made this public declaration, as a month later he was caught drinking with known penis biter and failed boxer Anthony Watts.
He was stood down by the Roosters until Round 10 of the season.
Todd didn’t seem to heed the message, because in August, he was caught with Nate Myles and Frank-Paul Nuuausala, breaking a team agreement to not touch alcohol for two-weeks. All three players were subject to disciplinary hearings, with Todd being released from the final year of his contract.
Todd attempted to re-invent his career in France, however was wisely denied a French visa. A month later, it was announced he had accepted a two-year contract with the Cronulla Sharks, estimated to be worth $700,000.
Throughout 2012 and his first year at the Sharks, Todd was finally scandal free.
Completely unrelated to this, Northies announced record profits and Cronulla’s player welfare and media relations teams both received significant performance based pay rises.
At the end of 2012 Todd tore his Achilles tendon and, unable to walk, spent the off-season recovering, much to the relief of the Cronulla club.
A scandal free Todd then knocked back an offer from the New Zealand Warriors in January 2013, to sign with the Sharks for an additional five-years from 2013.
Todd’s rep career was invigorated as well; he was selected to represent New South Wales at 5/8 during the State of Origin series.
At the end of 2013 he won the Dally M 'Five-Eight of the Year' Award for the second time, as well as appearing on the cover of Guns ‘n Ink magazine.
After two and a half years of relatively good behaviour, and despite the ongoing and thankless work of the Sharks public relations team, a scandal finally bubbled to the surface.
Todd’s pesky pubococcygeal muscles betrayed him again, with a photo leaking on to social media showing Todd urinating into his own mouth with relative ease and familiarity.
It was alleged the phone containing the images was lost (another theme to emerge) and the image was then published on social media.
Todd was immediately sacked by the Sharks, deregistered by the NRL, and bubbling entered the Australian lexicon.
Todd fled to Bali, where he engaged in raucous antics with both of the Corby sisters, sometimes simultaneously.
Despite Schapelle’s pleas, Todd felt he still had a footy itch to scratch. At the end of 2014 it was reported he flew to Turkey undertaking a perilous journey in the back of a truck with several Syrian refugees, finally smuggling himself in to France. He sought asylum at the Australian embassy in Paris, ensuring he was able to get a French visa, bypassing his earlier ban from the French Government.
Todd spent 2015 and 2016 playing for the Catalans Dragons. Not much is known of his time there, although French headlines featuring the words ‘Pipi’, ‘Chien’, ‘Sous-Vetements’, ‘Saucisse’ and ‘Mari’ appeared regularly next to his picture. What those words mean will remain a mystery.
After finally overstaying his welcome in the land of the cheese-eating surrender monkey, Todd moved to the Motherland, spending the 2018 season with the Salford Red Devils. He arrived in the UK via inflatable canoe, paddling across the English channel in a manner that was, according to the UK Coastguard, ‘reckless and incredibly stupid’.
At the conclusion of the 2018 Super League season, Todd was not re-signed by Salford despite wanting to stay on.
Todd returned to Australia in an attempt to restart his NRL career. He signed with the Northern Pride and after being rejected by Manly, started training with the NQld Cowboys. Despite some speculation, he wasn’t cleared by the NRL. Todd then moved back to Sydney citing family reasons, taking several pairs of NQld training shorts with him.
Todd then signed with the North Sydney Bears, however as he wouldn’t pay the $15,000 release fee, he signed a short term contract with Hull K-R, playing 6 games.
Todd then returned to Australia, cashed in his frequent flyer miles for a $50 Woolworths voucher, and signed on as captain coach of the Byron Bay Red Devils, renting a shack in the quaint town of Nimbin.
What can possibly go wrong for Todd now.

2018.06.21 03:59 splodingshroom Developing Australian metal: Origins, traditional bands and Aussie thrash

G'day all,
Welcome back to the series of primers on Australian metal. Today we come to part two, covering the musical development of heavy music in Australia from the classic pub-rock/hard rock bands you've probably heard of on to the classic early heavy metal bands that you've likely not heard of, through to our classic thrash bands that you've probably heard of. If you haven't already, check out the previous post that gives a bit of an introduction to the topic. Links to the other posts below.
1: An introduction to Australian metal, and the big bands that sound like other bands
2: Developing Australian metal: Origins, traditional bands and Aussie thrash [This Post]
3: Aussie Prog/melodeath/symphonic
4: Aussie death/grind
5: Aussie war, black/death, black/thrash
6: Orthodox BM, DSBM, Atmoblack/death and LoFi BM
Where the previous post was intended to give people an introduction to a wide variety of bands, this one will be something of a musical-historical narrative, hoping to show how Australian bands developed. It's going to be somewhat simplified, and my focus is more on the bands and their music, rather than stringing together a blow-by-blow of how Australian metal proliferated. As with the previous posts

please note I may have intentionally left a big/good band to discuss in a later post. Please don't send me tonnes of messages about leaving out band X.

Some sources that I've used for this:

Metal Down Under - This is a three-part documentary that follows the development of Australian metal in three broad eras: the beginning of Aussie metal out of hard rock, the development of thrash and extreme metal in the late 80s and early 90s, and contemporary scenes in the 2000s and onwards. It's worth a watch if you're interested in the topic, but many of the underground scenes and bands are glossed over in favour of following big names around (though many of them have interesting things to say).
Brian Giffin's Encyclopaedia of Australian Heavy Metal - This has been an invaluable resource for me in my study, it's like a print version of Metal Archives with as much detail packed in as possible. It's good at giving context on certain bands in terms of how they fit with wider movements, but has the big limitation of a book in that it's only accurate up until its publication date (mid 2010s in this case) and as such misses out on some of the most recent developments in Aussie metal.
Ian McFarlane's Encyclopaedia of Australian Rock and Pop - Similar to Giffin's book, but a much broader focus. Nonetheless, it's got a surprisingly large amount of metal bands in there with very accurate information and genre knowledge (McFarlane worked for a subsidiary of Roadrunner back in the day, so he's got some familiarity with the subject matter). It also gives a good idea of how the biggest bands fit into the wider picture of Australian music and was particularly helpful with musical developments in the 70s and 80s. Like Giffin's encyclopaedia, it's limited by print era (the first edition cutting off in the late 90s) but the second edition was published in 2017.
I also used a smattering of academic and journalistic sources. For those after a more academic take on Australian metal, I'd recommend Michelle Phillipov's chapter 'Metal Downunderground' where she gives a broad overview of Australian metal and some of its interactions with wider Australian society. I've just about hit the post limit, so hit me up if you're interested in citations for some of this work. Beyond that, additional information is an amalgamation of my own personal knowledge and things I've gleaned from chatting with various different fans, musicians and journos across the past few years while working on bits and pieces of my research. If anyone finds anything inaccurate, I'd love to know and would be happy to make corrections!
On with the show!

Australian Hard Rock

Australia has a long-standing tradition of pub rock bands. Many of our biggest bands got their start playing in dingy pubs and clubs around the nation, even when they would later go on to greatness. Punk and metal in Australia developed in much the same way, and the early bands in both of these genres influenced each other and were influenced by each other, to the point that the line between hard rock, punk rock and heavy metal is fairly blurry in a number of cases. These pubs became the main sites of scenic activity in the early days of metal bands, and there's still a fair culture of live shows in pubs today, seen in venues like Sydney's The Bald Faced Stag and Hobart's The Brisbane Hotel that regularly host metal gigs for bands big and small.
Aside from pubs, record stores were another big site of scenic activity, as they have been in many burgeoning metal scenes around the world. Stores such as Melbourne's 'Metal for Melbourne' store and its owner Greta Tate were instrumental in the development of Australian metal bands in the 70s and 80s, pushing for bands like Taramis, Taipan and Bengal Tigers to get some recognition. This also led to some Metal for Melbourne gigs between 1981 and 1986 that were especially important for young bands with members under 18 who couldn't get into pubs. Utopia Records in Sydney was likewise important to the early scene in terms of centrality and influence and provided a gateway for many Australian bands to access international acts through tape trading and vice versa (especially for a little band called Slaughter Lord!).
This simultaneous connection to and isolation from the rest of the world characterises a lot of Australian metal. It costs a LOT of money to get all your gear over here, so most of the international acts that made it out here were the really huge ones. The early hard rock bands talk about KISS as a huge influence; the next generation of thrash bands talk about Metallica in their prime as a live influence. Tape trading provided some access to the international underground, but many people speaking of the period from the 70s-late 80s describe feeling fairly cut off from the rest of the world, noting that this meant that Australian metal had to develop on its own somewhat with occasional reference to international forms.
By now, you're hopefully getting a bit of a sense of the melting pot that Australian music scenes are. In a way, this is representative more broadly of Australian culture. The Indigenous cultures and language groups were largely destroyed (though some do still survive) by invading settlers from Britain, meaning that much of our culture is based around that of Britain filtered through the lower-class convicts that made up most of the early population. There have been successive waves of migration to Australia from all over the world through the years, meaning that it's quite hard to identify something unique and original as 'Australian culture'; it's truly pretty multicultural, especially in the major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. The same is true for our music, described as being 'inflections or permutations on international styles' (Phillipov, 2008). This is largely borne out when you examine Australian hard rock and early metal, and is reasonably accurate for our other styles as well, though some more unique elements begin to emerge in various extreme metal subgenres. That said, Australian bands still play metal bloody well without needing to reinvent the wheel, and so we'll take a musical tour through our hard rock and metal bands. Aussie Hard Rock
Like Aussie metal, Aussie hard rock has something of an innate Australian attitude to it. A bit of rough-around-the-edges rogueish charm, a love of grog (alcohol), a fair go and knockin' off after a hard day's work and goin' down the pub with ya mates aye? Many people consider this 'something magical' about Aussie rock to have been imported almost wholesale into the early days of Aussie metal, and this attitude permeates through from Buffalo to Hobb's Angel of Death through to Blood Duster. Let's look at where it began.
NB: I've left the FFOs out of this section, as they're mainly meant to contextualise metal bands and I was having trouble giving recs that weren't sassy jabs.

AC/DC
Genre: Hard Rock/Blues Rock
Start with: T.N.T (1975) or Back in Black (1980)
A band that needs no introduction, AC/DC are Australia's most famous band of people who weren't Australian (all of them being Scottish). Angus and Martin Young were the driving guitarists, whilst Bon Scott is pretty much the quintessential Australian rocker, complete with living fast and dying young in 1980. Recruiting Brian Johnsson, the band continued and put out one of the best rock albums of all time with Back in Black, but he lacks the bad boy charm of Scott. Although not a metal band by any stretch of the imagination, they're hugely influential on metal, both Australian and otherwise. The eldest Young brother, George, also deserves special mention, being a key member of another big Aussie band The Easybeats and producing a large part of AC/DC's early work alongside work by The Angles and Rose Tattoo. AC/DC are truly a national icon, to the point where current Prime Minister copped some flak in the press for not being able to name a single AC/DC song last year, something considered 'un-Australian'.
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Airbourne: AC/DC 2.0 and unashamed about it, mixing in some elements of The Angels and Rose Tattoo. If you like any of the bands in this section, you'll probably enjoy them.
Jet: Equal parts Lonely Hearts-era Beatles and AC/DC hard rock. Their first album Get Born is pretty great, and the various singles got tonnes of Aussie radio play.

The Angels
Genre: Hard rock/punk rock
Start with: Face to Face (1975)
Another legendary Aussie act that moved from pubs to colossal international tours and influenced huge amounts of hard rock, punk and metal bands around the world, arguably setting much of the blueprint that would be followed by later bands like Cold Chisel and Midnight Oil. A large part of this band's draw was their live show, with lots of audience interaction. Their punky attitude and rhythm have been cited as particularly influential on the later development of Aussie metal, and they were given some early press by AC/DC.
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Midnight Oil: A fairly famous punky-hard rock act known in part for their environmental activism (how CAN we sleep if our beds are burning???). Singer Peter Garrett was later the Australian Federal Minister for the Arts and the Environment, in some connection with his musical activity.

Cold Chisel
Genre: Hard Rock
Start with: Cold Chisel (1978)
Starting out as a heavy metal-styled band called Orange that played Deep Purple covers, Cold Chisel would become another legendary Aussie rock act. Singer Jimmy Barnes' vocals are iconic, and Ian Moss is regarded as one of Australia's better guitarists, having a distinguished solo career. Interconnected with the bands above (Barnes replaced Bon Scott in the band Fraternity), Cold Chisel are another of the hugely influential pub rock bands.
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
The Church: Sonically, they're more post-punk and jangly guitars that Chisel's straightforward rock approach, but both bands seem to have a fairly similar fan base.

Rose Tattoo
Genre: Hard rock/proto-metal
Start with: Rose Tattoo (1978)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/artists/Angry_Anderson/31060 (singer for the band, largely based on his work with Saxon).
Perhaps the closest to being 'real metal' of these rock bands, though for my money there's a bit too much of the blues-rock influence still there for them to be a metal band. Regardless, they're hugely influential on Australian metal and hard rock, featuring Peter Wells formerly of Buffalo, Phil Rudd formerly of AC/DC and renowned singer Angry Anderson, who (much later) would do some session vocals for Saxon. Certainly worth checking out if 70s trad is your thing.

The origins of Aussie heavy metal

It's from this musical context (and even from some of these same bands) that the beginnings of Aussie metal come from. There were tonnes of trad bands that popped up around this era, but I'm going to focus on the ones that lasted the longest and had the biggest impact. Of some note is the fact that a large majority of these bands are from Melbourne, with a few bands from Adelaide and Sydney in the mix.
NB: Where I think the best recommendation for Aussie bands is other bands in this section, I've left off the 'If I liked this Aussie band, I might also like the following Aussie band(s)' section.

Buffalo
Genre: Hard rock/Heavy Metal
FFO: Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple
Start with: Volcanic Rock (1973)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Buffalo/3540367303
Arguably Australia's first heavy metal band that originally formed in 1968 under the name Head. While the first release Dead Forever (1972) straddles the line between Zeppelin-style blues rock and Sabbath-style heavy metal, Volcanic Rock (1973) is a bonafide metal album very much in the vein of early Sabbath, complete with opener 'Sunrise' that sounds very much like a band that has just heard 'Paranoid' and wants to get in on that. That said, there's something quite different about them that can be heard in the chorus of the same song that shows a fair connection to the Aussie pub-rock bands mentioned above. Though they supported Sabbath for a couple of shows in 1973, they never managed to make it very big, held back in part by a lack of radio play (and some controversy over the androgynous penis-wielding figure on the cover of Volcanic Rock). There's a bit of a doomy-proggy sound that can be heard on songs like 'The Prophet' and 'Shylock' that cement the harder, heavy metal edge to the band and has the 'darkness' that's always separated early metal like Sabbath from hard rock like Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple for me. Following a line-up change in 1975, they headed in a much more commercial hard rock direction, leaning a bit more heavily into the tropes and double-entendre lyrical style of hard rock that AC/DC were beginning to make famous. Regardless of their later output, it's hard to deny the impact that their early albums had on the development of Aussie metal and rock, and they're worth a listen
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Ash: A pretty small band in a similar early-Sabbath style that were active in Melbourne around the same time. The Sabbath-style vocals make the comparison even more obvious, but musically they're a bit more on the hard rock side of things. Only have two singles recorded - Mightnight Witch/Warrant (1971) is the more 'metal' of the two, while Avignon/Sable (1970) is much more poppy. Recordings and a handful of videos can be found on Youtube fairly easily if you're interested.
Tarot: A much more recent band from Hobart, not to be confused with the Finnish band. Similar classic Sabbath-style heavy metal run through the proggy lens of Deep Purple and Rainbow. Sitting fairly closely on the border between hard rock and metal, but their Reflections (2016) is worth a listen.

Taipan
Genre: Heavy Metal
FFO: Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath
Start with: Breakout (EP 1982)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Taipan/5682
As you'll notice with this next group of bands that formed toward the end of the 1970s, there's a big influence from Judas Priest and the newly-developing NWOBHM. Taipan show a huge connection to early Priest and, for me, are reminiscent of early Maiden minus their punk-ish leanings. The chorus to 'Breakout' could fit pretty neatly underneath the chorus to 'Iron Maiden', and they're both from the same year. Other songs on Breakout demonstrate some Sabbath-style riffing, with 'Tired of you' being quite reminiscent of 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'. Later albums are very NWOBHM influenced and also demonstrate a much more proggy sound (see 1770 (1985) for an example of this and a straight rip-off of 'Don't Fear the Reaper' in the middle of 'Waiting for the Day') If you take a look at their MA page, you might notice that they formed in 1979, recorded some EPs and demos in the 80s, but their first full-length album was recorded in 2007. This is somewhat common for bands of this era, who made their mark mostly through smaller live shows in pubs and clubs around the bigger cities.

Bengal Tigers
Genre: Heavy Metal
FFO: Scorpions, Accept, AC/DC
Start with: Metal Fetish (EP 1982) or In the Blood (1998)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Bengal_Tigers/5842
Leaning on the attitude and chords of AC/DC mixed in with some of the more metal stylings and riffing of the developing European metal bands. They're also somewhat more reminiscent of a glammy-Van Halen-esque style of metal/hard rock that sounds very Sunset Strip listening back to it now. After breaking up in 1983, they reformed at the end of the 80s, releasing a few EPs that were much more reminiscent of the passing NWOBHM movement leading up to their first full-length in 1998 that mixed in a bit of thrashy rhythm. Again, they broke up shortly afterwards in 1999, reforming once more in 2014. Depending on whether you're more interested in the glammy-trad style or the thrashy-trad style, pick either the former or latter album suggested above, but both are pretty good. Their main period of being influential on the development of Aussie metal seems to have been in their earlier run from 1979-1983, but they remain pretty widely regarded to this day.
If I liked this Aussie band, I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Axatak: A bit of a darker sound, they're a bit like if Bengal Tigers followed some of the darker NWOBHM bands along the lines of Venom and Mercyful Fate before coming back to the likes of Accept and the Scorpions. Their visual aesthetic looks a bit like KISS and Alice Cooper had a baby that didn't like wearing makeup, which is matched somewhat in elements of their sound.

Black jack
Genre: Heavy Metal
FFO: Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest
Start with: Five Pieces of eight (1985)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Black_Jack/18613
While not releasing much material, Black Jack are still a classic Aussie metal band, and rival Running Wild for being one of the early bands to mix pirate themes into their metal music. Five Pieces of Eight (1985) is an excellent album, released thanks in part to the efforts of Metal for Melbourne. There's some excellent drumming, especially on the track 'The Wizard' and also some very neo-classical shred on 'Prelude #3', reminiscent of what Yngwie Malmsteen and Van Halen might play combined with much more straightforward bluesy metal. Very much worth checking out.

S.A.S
Genre: Heavy Metal
FFO: Iron Maiden gallops, NWOBHM
Start with: Warlords (1987)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/S.A.S./5883
A pretty shortlived band, but quite influential and well regarded in the local Melbourne scene while they were around. VERY big Maiden influence in their sound combined with some of the older influences from hard rock and early metal acts that can be heard in some of the riffing. This shows that NWOBHM had very much arrived in Australia by this point, but the older influence of bands like Buffalo and Sabbath had hung around a bit longer in bands of this era that they had elsewhere in the world (consider that this band formed the year Metallica released Ride the Lightning (1984) to get a better idea of how sounds were progressing elsewhere in the world).
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Outcast: Iron Maiden worship from a recent band that's done pretty well. Label mates with Tarot above, they've got a pretty solid EP out that can be found through the Heavy Chains Records bandcamp. Worth a listen if you really like Maiden, there's some good songwriting and musicianship on display.

Boss/BB Steal
Genre: Heavy Metal/Glam
FFO: Judas Priest, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister
Start with: Step on it (1984)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Boss/10171
A huge sound and attitude, clearly heavily influenced by Judas Priest from the sound to the logo. There's a fair amount of AC/DC attitude and vocal style in their sound as well, alongside a very US-glam sound (and lyrical focus) reminiscent of Motley Crue and Dokken style bands. They had a pretty solid live reputation but found it pretty hard to make much of an impact sales-wise in Australia, though they found a fair amount of success in Germany and Japan. The group later changed its name to BB Steal and followed the commercial hard rock/glam style much more heavily.
If I liked this Aussie band I might like the following Aussie band(s):
Heaven: Another hard rock/heavy metal band that kind of straddle the line between AC/DC and Judas Priest. Somewhat successful in Australia, they eventually moved to America to keep the band going.

Ion Drive
Genre: Heavy Metal
FFO: Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath
Start with: Witches (demo, 1984)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ion_Drive/24004
Another band with a huge, well-established live presence in connection with Metal for Melbourne that put out a live EP and 10-track demo in 1984 and recorded their 'debut' EP in 2017. Some solid and atmospheric heavy metal very much in the vein of heavier Sabbath and Iron Maiden (especially vocally!). The Witches (1984) demo has the biggest collection of their material, with the EP mainly being re-recordings of the demo tracks. Regarded by many as one of the most underrated bands of this era of Melbourne heavy metal, the demo is worth checking out if you can find it (with a few scattered tracks around online). They've been recording tracks for a full length this year, so hopefully something interesting is on its way soon!

The Development of Aussie Thrash

Australia has truly produced some of the world's best thrash, and this section is going to cover the big bands in two main groups: Melbourne bands and Sydney bands. In Melbourne, there's a reasonably clear link between the heavy metal discussed above and the development of thrash metal seen in bands like Renegade, Taramis and Nothing Sacred moving through to the more extreme bands like Hobb's Angel of Death. In Sydney (and Canberra), things developed in a somewhat more extreme way, with bands like Slaughter Lord being very evocative of the first wave of Black metal as an inspiration for bands like Bathory, right through until the legendarily extreme Sadistik Exekution that will be covered in a later post. It's with the development of Australian thrash that the characteristic hybridity and extremity of the bands come out: punk makes a very big imprint on the Sydney thrash scene (more so that it does in some other areas), owing to the fact that many of the Western Sydney metal and punk scenes were so small that they were often lumped in together. Slayer was a big influence on Australian metal, and many thrash bands jumped pretty quickly up to a very death-thrash or black-thrash style (seen perhaps most clearly with Armoured Angel and Slaughter Lord) that would contribute to the development of later bands like Destroyer 666. While the Western coast of the country was still somewhat isolated from these developments, Allegiance are a notable Perth band who were very influential in spite of their isolation.
Aussie thrash has much to owe to the worldwide impact of Bay Area thrash; while many of these bands were active from the early 80s, it wasn't until the worldwide success of bands like Metallica and Slayer that many of these bands gained popularity and interest in the form of regular gigs, especially for the bands falling on the more extreme side of the thrash spectrum. This can be seen in the somewhat later dates of many of the early albums for these bands, with full-length records tending to be released around 1987-1988, occasionally preceded by demos and EPs. Sadly for many bands, this was too little too late, and they folded for one reason or another, with Mortal Sin and Armoured Angel being the only real exceptions. However, don't let that suggest to you that these bands aren't high quality and their influence is often far-reaching, both within Australian and across the world.
NB: As with the previous section, I've left out the 'If I liked this Aussie band, I might also like the following Aussie band(s)' section as most of the connections would be to other bands on this list, or to the personal picks section that follows.

Taramis
Genre: PoweProg/Thrash
FFO: Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Fates Warning
Start with: Queen of Thieves (1987)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Taramis/2008
Taramis are something of a link between the Melbourne trad bands covered above and the more clearly thrash bands covered below. Forming in 1983 under the name Prowler, there's a pretty clear Iron Maiden influence in the poweprog side of their music and elements of Mercyful Fate in the vocals and cleaner sections (see the title track of Queen of Thieves and compare it to 'Melissa'). There's still a bit of a proto-thrash edge to some of the other tracks, especially in regards to the harmony and rhythm guitar work. 1991's Stretch of the Imagination has a more thrashy feel to it, feeling like a poweprog version of Megadeth in some ways. There was some crossover of members between Taramis and Nothing Sacred.

Nothing Sacred
Genre: PoweThrash
FFO: Judas Priest, a more chill version of early Metallica
Start with: Let us Prey (1988)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Nothing_Sacred/4458
Another 'missing link' band between the Melbourne trad bands and the developing Thrash bands; if Taramis were a bit too NWOBHM for you, you might enjoy these guys a bit more. Not quite heavy enough to be thrash proper (though there is a young-Hetfield kind of edge to the vocals) but not quite melodic and cheesy enough to be straight power metal. Some sections have that very thrashy Phrygian harmony to them that puts me in mind of early Metallica, but it lacks the speed and aggression that you'd expect from Bay Area thrash. Nothing Sacred were a pretty big influence on the development of Aussie thrash, and were somewhat famous for taking radio play by force when they broke into a station and held the DJ at gunpoint to play their album, leaving when the guitarist started swearing on radio. During the recording of their second album, they decided to take a short hiatus that wound up lasting 23 years, reforming in 2015 with a supposed new album on the way. As mentioned, some members crossed over into Taramis and some members were also involved with Hobbs' Angel of Death later on.

Renegade
Genre: Trad/Thrash
FFO: early Metallica, Venom, Mercyful Fate, Slayer
Start with: Total Armageddon (1987)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Renegade/4851
This is starting to sound a bit more like thrash, especially with the mix of higher vocals and harsher growls in the vein of Venom, though there's still a fair connection back to classic trad sounds and NWOBHM. As cheesy as the demon with a can of beer cover looks today, it caused some waves back in the day, and this album is definitely on the darker side of thrash with some of the later tracks being closer to Slayer than they are Metallica. There's a fair amount of punk in their sound, attributed to the influence of Melbourne punk band Depression. Along with the previous to bands, they were regulars at Metal for Melbourne through the 80s, until their gear was stolen at a gig in 1988 leading them to call it quits. Reformed in 2017 as 'Jonny Beer's Renegade'.

Tyrus/Hobbs' Angel of Death
Genre: Thrash (proto-death/thrash is argued by many for Hobbs)
FFO: Slayer, Dark Angel, Sodom, Kreator
Start with: Tyrus (Compilation, 2013); Hobbs: Hobbs' Angel of Death (1988)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Tyrus/18760; https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Hobbs%27_Angel_of_Death/3357
No disrespect to Tyrus, but Hobb's is the real gem here. Tyrus were reasonably successful for their short time as a band, especially live, and were similar in vein, if heavier than, Renegade. However, main songwriter Peter Hobbs decided in 1977 that he could do better on his own and formed Hobbs' Angel of Death and set about re-recording much of Tyrus' material plus some new songs, using the former Tyrus and Nothing Sacred members essentially as session musicians. Referring to this new style of music as 'virgin metal' (as it was new and 'unfucked'), the Angel of Death (1977) demo initially wasn't very well received in Australia but was picked up in Germany and was VERY well liked. The influence of Slayer and similarity to the big Teutonic thrash bands is fairly evident when listening to their debut, so this isn't much of a surprise. Although the band dissolved shortly after this, they were very influential on developing the extreme end of thrash and introducing a proto-death/thrash style to Australia, later taken further by bands like Armoured Angel. Hobbs' reformed the band in a variety of incarnations, putting out an album every decade or so; Inheritance (1995) is a good place to go if you want to be reminded that thrash was still alive in the 90s and Heaven Bled (2016) maintains a fair amount of aggression) and have been reasonably active since their most recent reformation in 2002.

Mortal Sin
Genre: Thrash
FFO: Early Metallica, Coroner, Testament, Exodus
Start with: Mayhemic Destruction (1986)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Mortal_Sin/709
We move now to Sydney and one of the greatest Australian acts to have made music. If you are into extreme music at all, then you need to hear both Mortal Sin and Slaughter Lord. In the case of Mortal Sin, their debut Mayhemic Destruction (1986) had them pegged by Kerrang! as the next big thing in metal. This was then followed up by the very capable Faces of Despair (1989), another Aussie metal classic. As with Hobbs' and Slaughter Lord, Mortal Sin were responsible for pushing the envelope in terms of more extreme sounds and were hugely influential on a generation of Australian metalheads; one anecdote tells it that Mortal Sin supported Metallica during their Australian tour supporting Master of Puppets and that it was Mortal Sin, NOT Metallica that were the draw-card for most Aussie fans. In spite of this level of success, interpersonal conflict drove the band apart shortly after a European tour in 1990, leaving bassist Andy Eftichou as the only original member left. Not deterred, he collected some new members are released the pretty abysmal Every Dog Has its Day (1991, released elsewhere as Rebellious Youth), eventually attracting a lawsuit from the other original members and ending the band for the time. The original members reformed briefly in 1996, releasing an EP before conflicts drove them apart again. A final reformation in 2004 led to two further albums (that were fairly decent) before they broke up for the final time in 2012.

Slaughter Lord
Genre: Thrash/death/black
FFO: Bathory, Possessed, Demolition Hammer, Sacrafago
Start with: Thrash Til Death 86-87 (Compilation, 2000)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Slaughter_Lord/1767
By far the most legendary Australian band to never record an album with an impact and influence much wider than their brief two years of activity and comparatively small discography might suggest. Slaughter Lord were thanked in the liner notes to Bathory's Under the Sign of the Black Mark, covered by At the Gates on Slaughter of the Soul (1995) and had members who went on to play in Mortal Sin, Nazxul and Sadistik Exekution. It's perhaps difficult to overstate the importance of Slaughter Lord to Australian extreme metal and extreme metal in general. If you have any interest in black, death, thrash or extreme metal broadly, I strongly recommend listening to Slaughter Lord, they're fantastic and you can quite clearly hear the influence they had and took from bands like Bathory and Possessed.

Armoured Angel
Genre: Thrash/Death
FFO: early era: Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Venom; mid-later era: Bolt Thrower, Ares Kingdom, Arghoslent
Start with: Baptism in Blood (demo, 1985 for the 'pure' thrash side) or Stygmartyr (EP, 1992 - for the death/thrash side) or Angel of the Sixth Order (1999 - for the death metal side)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Armoured_Angel/597
The early demo is really what fits into this part of the conversation. One of the earlier trash bands, forming in 1982, which can be heard in the demo that still retains a BIG NWOBHM influence. As the later albums suggest, they evolved into a much heavier death/thrash style. All eras of the band are pretty solid, though they're definitely better known as a death/thrash band these days than their early thrash origins.
Armoured Angel are also responsible for starting the annual 'Metal for the Brain' festival that ran from 1991-2006, the proceeds of which were sent to a friend of the bands' who had been injured in a fight outside a Canberra nightclub, became quadriplegic and suffered brain damage. This festival was a huge event in the Aussie metal scene, with many of the line-ups for each year reading as a whos-who of established and up-and-coming Australian metal. Organisation of the event was later taken over by fellow Canberra band Alchemist in 1996, though it proved costly as all proceeds were given to charity, meaning the band organising it (usually Alchemist) had to start from scratch each year. This fact, combined with some manufactured controversies with local government, meant that the festival eventually shut down in 2006.

Addictive
Genre: Thrash
FFO: Dark Angel, Kreator, 80s-Metallica
Start with: Pity of Man (1989)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Addictive/1635
Something of a sister band to Mortal Sin (with about half of Addictive also being in Mortal Sin) though not quite of the same calibre. Less of a 'punch you in the face with riffs' vibe than Mortal Sin had, Addictive are the Master of Puppets to Mortal Sin's Kill 'Em All. Both Pity of Man (1989) and Kick 'em Hard (1993) are well written and feature some great riffs. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you really enjoyed Mortal Sin's first two albums.

Allegiance
Genre: Thrash
FFO: Testament, Black-album Metallica, Vio-Lence
Start with: D.e.s.t.i.t.u.t.i.o.n (1994)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Allegiance/708
Somewhat isolated from both groups of previous thrash bands all the way over in Perth, Allegiance are also a little late to the game, forming in 1990 and putting out their first album in 1994. While there's a certain early-90s groove-y-ness to them, there's still some really well-written thrash in there. Some parts very much feel like a slightly thrashier Black album, while in other parts it feels like the secret side project of Robb Flynn and Phil Demmel when Vio-lence and Machine Head are put aside for a while. Don't be dissuaded by these comparisons, this is still a thrash band fundamentally and is worth your time to check out. Allegiance were especially influential in the Perth scene and had a huge grassroots marketing campaign that pushed them to #1 in the Western Australian ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association) charts. There was also something of a kerfuffle with Rob Halford and his marketing company apparently promising to promote the band but never doing so and the band maintain that he never did anything to help them. Allegiance themselves were keen to support local acts, and were a fair part of getting bands like iNFeCTeD to pull big support slots.

My picks for other Aussie thrash

Blathudah
Genre: Thrash
FFO: Exodus, Anthrax
Start with: Spawnography (1995)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Blathudah/4350
A true cult-classic band from Sydney, barely anyone seems to have heard of these guys which is a real shame because they're fantastic. Like a very punky Anthrax, they've got a good mix of groove, speed and thrash. Spawnography is a seriously great release and damn near impossible to find, selling for $120 at its lowest on discogs.

4arm
Genre: Thrash/Groove
FFO: Pantera, Testament, 90s Metallica
Start with: 13 Scars (2005) or Submission for Liberty (2012)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/4Arm/3540307363
4arm are... Kinda meh imo, but they're quite popular and worth mentioning in regards to Aussie thrash. They're kind of like a thrashier Aussie Pantera in their early work, and the later work has a bit less groove going on, whilst the new vocalist sounds less like Phil Anselmo and more like he's James Hetfield doing a poor Tom Araya impression. If Groove/Thrash is your thing, you'll probably like them, and they're a logical conclusion to the kind of music Allegiance were making a decade earlier, but I find them somewhat generic.

Psychonaut
Genre: Thrash? (elements of trad and hard rock as well)
FFO: Slayer, Motorhead, Exodus, 80s Bay Area
Start with: Shock 'Em Dead (2012)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Psychonaut/20484
Psychonaut have something of a schizophrenic sound. There's a myriad of styles in the mix here, but rather than being 'progressive' it comes off as a bit confused. Some songs feature very punky rhythms under thrashy, early-Metallica style vocals (see 'Darklord Rise!') while others give off something of a hard rock vibe with odd Dethklok-esque vocals over the top (see 'Wolfman'). This isn't necessarily bad, and the band show a fair amount of promise in their styles, but they'd be better off picking one and sticking to it IMO. The thrashy stuff they've done is definitely worth a look though.

Desecrator
Genre: Thrash
FFO: Metallica, Testament, Sacred Reich
Start with: Live Til Death (Live, 2011) or To The Gallows (2017)
MA: https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Desecrato3540324406
A more recent Melbourne thrash band that play fairly straightforward thrash very much in the vein of the classic 80s Bay Area sound. Some solid riffs across their releases and a pretty solid live presence. If you enjoyed some of the classic Aussie thrash bands that were on the less extreme side, these guys are worth a look too.
That's all for this post, apologies for the length (it's juuust under the character limit). Looking back, we've covered a fair amount of ground from hard rock classics through to intense black/thrash/death mixes (NB: some of the noteworthy black/thrash/death mixes will be covered in more detail in the post for that style). Next time, we'll discuss some of our big progressive bands and some of our melodic death metal bands you should have a listen to alongside a smattering of symphonic bands.
