A very rare photo indeed, not many people know but the first ever Australian radio interview conducted with the Fabs was done in early 1963 by Wollongong shock jock Tristram J Shitemueller, locally he was know as ‘Tristram the J’, he used to unnerve his interview subjects by interviewing them whilst naked from the waist down, except for a pair of black stilleto’s, in this photo you can see the Fabs trying to draw attention away from anything lower than Tristram’s neck, the interview is most notable for Trimstram’s up front direct question’s to the boy’s ‘So John, did you guys really score speed in Hamburg from the lady who used to sloose out the shitters?’. Hopefully one day the full interview will land in the hands of Purple Chick and see a proper release with worthy artwork.
