Australia knew that it loved the Delltones in 1958, when the four young lifesavers,
Noel Weiderberg, Brian Perkins, Warren Lucas and Ian 'Peewee' Wilson,
appeared gawky, gangly and hopeful at the Bronte Surf Club, then in Australian
stadium 'Big Shows' with mentor Johnny O'Keefe, on pioneering radio show
Rockville Junction and television shows Six O'Clock Rock and Bandstand, and
finally on record with their debut top twenty hit, the Crows' doo wop standard Gee.
The Delltones were part of a burgeoning rock 'n' roll environment which largely
invented itself; part of a community which drew guitar patterns on Fantales boxes
in darkened cinemas, ran sprawling suburban dances with pug nosed boxers as
bouncers, blew international touring acts off stage with raw, blustery energy, and
gleefully upset the social order of a young and conservative country.
