The Quick and the Dead, who played in Perth during 1979–81, pioneered a sound closely related to Oi!. They attracted media attention resulting from the behaviour of some fans, including violence and the use of Nazi regalia.

Quick and the Dead were Australia’s first RAC (Rock Against Communism) band. The band was formed in 1979 as Audio Damage but changed their name to Quick and the Dead in 1980. They released an album-length demo tape called “Kick into ‘82” and a 7” called “Another Violent Night”. They broke up in 1983, their final gig being in Perth.

In 2007, the music from the 7”, the demo, a demo tape recorded in 1979 as Audio Damage and another one recorded in 1980, their final gig in 1983, an unreleased EP called “Chewy Chewy” and TV news reports were packaged in a 4 CD box set.
