No Fixed Address were established in 1979 at the Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music. In 1980 the band co-starred in the road movie titled ‘Wrong Side of the Road’ which won the Jury Prize in 1981 for best picture at the AFI awards.
The band toured throughout Australia and went on to tour internationally during the mid to late 1980s performing at festivals and mainstream venues throughout the United Kingdom and Europe.
No Fixed Address performed as support to Australian acts Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil, Men at Work, INXS and Goanna Band etc, as well as with international acts The Clash, Taj Mahal, Ian Drury and reggae great Peter Tosh.
Raw and unbending No Fixed Address challenged the status quo of commercialism in Australia and around the world by writing and performing original songs about the plight of Aboriginal people.
No Fixed Address were inducted into the National Indigenous Music Associations ‘Hall of Fame’ in 2011. In 2016 the original members were inducted into the Adelaide Music Collectives, South Australian Music ‘Hall of Fame’.
Adelaide City Council honoured No Fixed Address by naming a lane after them and a mural of the band members was painted on the wall of the laneway in 2021.
Co-founding members and songwriters Bart Willoughby drums/vocals, Ricky Harrison Rhythm guitar/vocals, will be joined on stage by Selwyn Burns on lead guitar and Tjimba Possum Burns on bass guitar and harmonies.
The Sunset tour which began to launch and promote their book No Fixed Address, regarding their journey in the music industry, was written by friend and ex-manager Donald Robertson.
