The Funky Turtles

Moving from the UK to Australia in the mid 1960’s, Geoff Hassell an aspiring young drummer, found himself living in Melbourne during the hey day of sharpies, rockers & mods. On the podcast he spoke about his love of music and what led to an unexpected, yet possibly the most fulfilling chapter in his music career, creating the Funky Turtles.

Correction from the podcast: Ross Hannaford was in the band Mighty Kong and not Mondo Rock as mentioned.

Picture: 'The Funky Turtles' at Suttons.
