    Default Street performers

    Here's a couple of nutters spotted in Church Street...






    How long must it take these guys to get ready for the gig? Back in the 80s, buskers made do with simpler props...



    Just off Church Street: 1980s sometime




    Augustus: Bold Street 1983.

    Anyone remember this guy? He was Polish I believe. He would stand outside a shop and screech away on his whistle until someone would come out, stick some money in his sock and tell him to **** off further down the road. Seemed to do quite well as a result.

    The best I've ever seen was a guy in the centre of Adelaide in 1981. He was miming William Tell shooting the apple on his son's head, with help from a kid recruited from the crowd. He misses the apple and shoots the kid.
    Much funnier than it sounds here!

    Sounds cool Kevin. Not much more fun than shooting small children with an arrow.

    A bolt, Pabs, a bolt. We're talking William Tell here, not Robin Hood!
