Here is a cool video clip circa '74 of the scene built around the Sharpies in australia, their look is a pre-punk style very much like the Jook, amazed to see kids with mohawks this far back too, the song playing sounds like Jook's 'Rumble', check out the - 70s invasion - for info on related music of the 1970s, specifically pre-punk -
