BUFFALO REVISITED GETS BACK IN THE SADDLE
The new line-up of Buffalo Revisited will make its debut at iconic Sydney hotel The Bridge on Saturday, June 3.
Buffalo Revisited celebrates the music of singer Dave Tice's '70s outfit Buffalo, lauded as one of the most influential hard rock acts in Australia.
New members, guitarist Troy Scerri (ex-Daredevil) and drummer Marcus Fraser (Bitter Sweethearts), join Tice and bassist Steve Lorkin in a fresh configuration.
Dave Tice is a founding member of Buffalo, who released five albums from 1971-77 to build a formidable underground reputation.
The band was profiled last year in a five-page spread in respected UK magazine Classic Rock in which they were dubbed "Australia's first heavy metal act".
While Tice says that sort of international attention is flattering, he's more focussed on making sure Buffalo Revisited delivers on the legacy.
Scerri and Fraser have impeccable pedigrees for the gig. Scerri was a member of White Trash, Daredevil, Death Mission, This Thing and-Mortal Sin. Fraser is the youngest member and is the son of Warwick Fraser (Screaming Tribesmen, Blackfeather and Feather) and his years of gigging belies his tender age.
Tickets for the gig are on sale at Moshtix, Oztix and Ticketetek.
Buffalo formed in Sydney in 1971. Largely unrecognized by commercial radio, Buffalo was one of the country's first exponents of the style heavy metal, pre-dating other pioneering Australian hard rock and heavy metal acts, such as Coloured Balls, AC/DC, The Angels, Taste and Rose Tattoo.
Like many pioneering heavy metal acts, Buffalo incorporated strong influences of blues-rock and psychedelia. The band's sound paralleled that of Black Sabbath, who they supported on their first Australian tour.
Buffalo's first three LPs, "Dead Forever", "Volcanic Rock" and "Only Want You For Your Body", are true classics with original copies commanding substantial dollars.
