Geelong Rock 'n' Roll, from BORED! to THE LIVING EYES - Two generations with The Gardners

Today I'll be talking with Grant, Billy and Zane Gardner. Grant is one of the founding members of iconic Geelong punk rock band, Bored. His two sons, Billy and Zane, followed in his footsteps over a decade later, playing in bands together such as The Living Eyes, Vertigo and Cereal Killer. Billy also started the label Antifade Records out of Geelong, which has gone on to have a huge impact on the Melbourne Punk and Proto-Garage scene over the last decade.
