Back in the '80s, we played Rock Against Racism concerts and lent our support whenever we could. I wrote DEATH IN CUSTODY in 1987. One night, we were playing it - and a few members of the Redfern Aboriginal band, Black Lace, walked in and stood there transfixed by the song. They came up after the set and ended up recording their own version in 1988.  [Ian Hearn, Strange Tenants]

The Block Rox! Lyrics by Kaiyu Bayles

(dedicated to the families past n present of Redfern Oz)

Holden Street's where my family began,
Nan hiding under the bed
From the devil man.
Mum fought her way through,
No one had it easy I knew.
Cards was the go, though
But no takin things slow. though
