Re: telephone box - that's brilliant, Bruce!

Much as I love many other bands around the traps, none would have the wit to pretend to ring up a PM like that.

Brisbane, Aus.

PG was never shy about mentioning the Aus PM at shows, but one particularly reference to Malcolm Fraser, in a particular live show from the early 80's, always seems to stand out for me.
When I saw them in 85 the stage had an old telephone box on it that PG used to call then PM, Bob Hawke, for a little chat.

I clicked over to PG's website to see if he had posted any comments on Whitlam's death. PG hasn't (yet), but the "About" section says he's working on a memoir to be released in 2015! Apologies if this is old news.

He scored at least one mention in Oils songs -

Gough was tough 'til he hit the rough,
Uncle Sam and John were quite enough.
