Around this time in Sydney the protest and sound system ecosystems were closely aligned. Tony Spanos’s Kombi named “Lilly” complete with a small p.a was invited to be the sound system at the rally. The Police decided to try and pounce on the beloved Kombi as the sound system was ignited.Mayhem ensued and the ‘Battle for the Kombi” began. This is part one in a two part series from the May Day protest in 2001.
