The Coolites – Caravan Park Summers

Caravan Park Summers is like a flashback to a time I can only imagine.

Being born in the nineties, I missed the origin of the kind of beat The Coolites are rocking here in 2015. The thick half-sung, half-spoken voice brings me back to things I have only seen in movies, rising and falling to a determined story.

The Coolites refresh the old ways, mixing their modern Australian perception with the sounds my parents rocked out to before the births of my brother and I put a hold on all that.

We’ve seen a lot of musical variation since then, but the 80’s are still alive and kicking. Here’s your second chance, Mum and Dad, get your Discman around Caravan Park Summers. (SP)
