Another article on the demise of the old EBOM Warehouse @ 144 Cleveland St (Lanfranchi's)

“One of the Keating! musicians lived in in a warehouse in Sydney’s Cleveland Street known as Lanfranchi’s – so called because the laneway behind it was where, in March 1981, Roger Rogerson shot Warren Lanfranchi in that memorable scene from Blue Murder – another very Sydney story.

Lanfranchi’s was a great labyrinth of rooms that had been performance venues, recording studios, installation spaces, a cinema and living quarters for several generations of Australian musicians. On June 25 the scores of young musos living, working and developing in Lanfranchi’s were finally evicted.

Four weeks ago Lanfranchi’s was one major strand of our city’s cultural DNA. Cut off. This is a city where pubs, the traditional live music venues, are pulling the plug more and more to make room for the pokies spreading like a blight across our city.”
