In November 1992 Romper Stomper was released, a film about a gang of Neo-Nazis skinheads, led by then rising star Russell Crowe as Hando, with Daniel Pollock as Davey, his right-hand man. With Cackles (Daniel Wyllie), Bubs (James McKenna), Champ (Eric Mueck) and a handful more making up the numbers in Hando’s gang. Yet the one man that Hando bows down to, as do the rest of the gang, is the older, more brutal and more organised Neo-Nazi skinhead, Magoo, (John Brumpton), a nickname given to him as he wears glasses.
