Jonathan Griffiths was born in New Zealand, in the shadow of Huntly’s coal-fired power station. He first came to fame as the singer of the infamous punk band, Proud Scum, in 1979.
He spent the ‘80s and ‘90s in Sydney as a playwright and taxi driver. And he’s been hiding in Melbourne ever since, churning out poems, novels and collections of short stories.
Interviewed by Gerard Smith on the TV show The Beat Goes On, Jonathan talks about The Road Behind.
