RIP John “Johnno” Rushin
Johnno was a central figure in the early Perth punk scene. Although not a member of any of the notable first wave punk bands, he was always there at the gigs, an informed and affable insider known to everyone. Post first-wave, he proved himself a spirited vocalist in his rockabilly outfit, The Bopcats, and in the early 80s in his collaboration with Dave ‘Rudolph’ Cardwell in The Love Assassins. Johnno died on Saturday October 18th, 2008. Sympathy to family and loved ones.
