His work has appeared widely, including in Rolling Stone, The Guardian, The Saturday Paper, Australian Financial Review, VICE and Crikey.

Clinton Walker is an independent Australian writer/producer who across five decades has published a dozen books and worked extensively in journalism, television and in music on stage, screen and record. Sydney’s Sun-Herald called him “our best chronicler of Australian grass-roots culture.” He calls himself a loose cannon. His greatest hits include Buried CountryInner City SoundHighway to HellStranded and The Suburban Songbook, all extending to either multi-media including soundtrack CDs and/or global reach. For three years he was the co-presenter of ABC-TV’s late night live music show Studio 22. In 2018, his graphic-history book Deadly Woman Blues was controversially withdrawn from sale. He is currently writing a musical set in Russia in 1913, and next year will see the release of his book in the celebrated 33 1/3 series about Saturday Night Fever.

He escaped just in time and now runs Valiant Music records and guitars in Brunswick Heads.
