No Fixed Address was a popular reggae band in the 1980's who developed at the University of Adelaide's Centre for Aboriginal studies in Music (CASM).
Biography[edit | edit source]
The band had significant airplay time on what was then 5MMM (now known as Three D Radio) and they supported Cold Chisel on a national tour. On its release, their album 'Wrong Side of the Road' won the Jury Prize at the 1981 AFI Awards and has recently been fully digitally restored by the National Film and Sound Archive. Bart Willoughby received a Fellowship in the 2014 Australia Council’s National Indigenous Arts Awards and continues to perform with the Bart Willoughby Band.
An early incarnation of the group had played only four gigs in Adelaide before setting out on a four-week interstate tour. One of those gigs was at the Port Adelaide Town Hall with two other black bands, Us Mob and Raw Deal.
