To most Australians, the Vietnam War has a rock and roll, real life soundtrack. Almost every novel, movie, memoir and oral history of the war mentions the music that was listened to in Vietnam. All the songs of the 1960s were part of the life in a combat zone. Troops listened to Sony radios, Akai stereos and Teac tape decks and new troops arrived weekly with the latest records from the States.
Events between 1962 and 1975 rocked the world as we knew it with social & political turmoil - the assassination of a president, an unpopular war, the civil women’s rights movements and the Cold War all heralding great change of things to come. The music of that era gave a voice to a new generation, capturing their hearts and minds forever and leaving us with a lasting representation of their creative legacy.
Rock band, Tour of Duty embark on a journey deep into the heart of this decade which wa one of the most influential, controversial & turbulent ever.
