Tobias sensed he’d have plenty of time to explore the nether regions of rock’n’roll history over his oncoming years in Patonga, a fishing village with a population of just over 200.
And Tobias would certainly explore. Years later, a move to Melbourne would see him expand on a musical obsession that had gripped him since high school – the clattering hooks of the UK punk era and the everyman stance of Americana, as well as elements of early soul and grainy FM pop – to inform the heart of Boy In A Box. The Clash is in there, as is Springsteen and even hints of a young Midnight Oil. “As well as Nina Simone and Frank Sinatra.”
