  2. I remember when they played Brisbane back in about 1980 and they hit the headlines when they threw a piano down the stairs at the hotel they were staying at and JJ hit someone over the head with his bass at the gig... or so the story goes.

    The visit to sunny Queensland effected them so much it spurred them on to write the song Nuclear Device, documenting Joh Bjelke Peterson's reign and his Jerrymander.
