But did reggae change perceptions of black music? In the 80s, black acts were still told to water down their sound to get hit singles, but reggae crossed over into pop with the Police and Culture Club. A more direct legacy of punk and reggae's fusion came in multiracial acts such as UB40, and the chart dominance of bands such as Madness and the Specials in the early 80s - acts now regarded not as reggae or ska bands, but great British pop groups.

I had a wonderful time doing this trip and although it was at times quite hard European Female - The Stranglers - The Barley Fever lonely I am really glad I decided to do it. Living European Female - The Stranglers - The Barley Fever Australia it has given me a lot of insight of how Australia must have been when the early explorers discovered the Murray and the country.
Of course a big part of the river is built up now, but there are lots of stretches where you could think you are the first person to be there. Until the last week I had only one full day of rain and one wet morning. There are long straight stretches towards the west where the wind funnels along and builds up a steep chop.
At the notorious Pellaring Reach even Captain Sturt waited for better weather. It was too rough even for him apparently. Well, I did not want any rest days so I kept going on, but at times was actually pushed backwards and had to take shelter in the reeds and willows. The scenery along the Murray does not change like on our bushwalks. Weitkuhn: River Red Gums. On the upper Murray after leaving from Corryong you can see a few distant hills.

But times have changed. Now you can do all this in a 2WD. Here we left Judy in charge of birds, bees and botany while Brian, Don and I headed off for the five kilometre walk to the summit, an altitude gain of only metres.
Parked under a shady snappy gum. At the top of the first jump-up we had our first clear views of Meharry. Then, inan unnamed whaleback prominence 50 kilometres to the south east was checked out by surveyor Trevor Merky and found to be 17 metres higher than Mt Bruce. After a bit of ferretting around in Native Title documents I found its aboriginal Dancing - Bauhaus - 1979-1983 Volume One to be Wirlbiwirlbi.

Hardly surprising. We were, after all, in a desert, with no nearby surface water and the ocean five hundred kilometres to the west. The semi-arid tropical climate has a highly variable rainfall of only mm to mm per annum; the evaporation rate is twelve times greater, hence the minimal surface water. The presence of surface water is very much dependent on incursions of the summer cyclonic rains sweeping in from the Indian Ocean to the west.
Back in bird land the meager offerings were a Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike, a Yellow-throated Miner and the seemingly ubiquitous Galah. Royal mulla- mulla. However the abundance and showiness of plant life in the Australian outback is often exceptional, especially after rain.
Pink Royal mulla-mulla Ptilotus rotundifolius covered the rocky Meharry landscape, occupying the interstices between clumps of spinifex. Royal mulla-mulla is a low perennial shrub growing to about one metre tall. The flower spikes are unmistakable: long, cylindrical and a bright pink. More than 35 species of mulla-mulla grow in the Pilbara and make for spectacular displays after good summer rains.
