Blast from the past

There's some sort of poetic justice about this ad for a gig being held at the Step Inn in the Valley on September 25. Those of us who remember the Joh Bjelke-Petersen era will know that for more than a decade after the political demise of Gough Whitlam, Bjelke-Petersen was blaming the evil federal Labor government for all manner of things that didn't go his way. Now, apparently, it turns out to be BJ's fault that we didn't get a free Rolling Stones gig in Brisbane way back when he ruled the show*.
