Welcoming Special Guests:
The Hard-Ons are back with their rampaging 12th studio album "So I Could Have Them Destroyed" which is released on Friday 11th October via Music Farmers. Today, they deliver the first taste of the album by dropping new single "Harder And Harder".
Clocking in at a concise 30 minutes through 12 tracks, "So I Could Have Them Destroyed" is a wild but focused memorandum of the current incarnation of the Hard-Ons. Original founding member Keish is welcomed back into the fold, joining drummer Murray and co-founders Ray and Blackie.
"So I Could Have Them Destroyed" sees the Hard-ons distilling their best musical traits. Brutal velocity. Rampaging guitars. Throbbing rhythms. Beautiful harmonised vocals. Here are 12 electrifying reasons why some artists get better with age. Good to see Hard-ons sticking to their tried-and-true dogma: NO FAT - JUST MUSCLE.
Remarkably "So I Could Have Them Destroyed" does not sound like any other Hard-ons release. It straddles the sweet spot between their treacherous and chaos-laden free-for-all approach and the diamond-hard solidity their beautiful melodies crave and deserve.
Producer and long-time friend of the band Lachlan Mitchell has thankfully managed to clear any unnecessary musical clutter and has harnessed sheer power and melody resulting in a crystal-clear documentation. Brilliantly highlighted is the band's incredible song-craft and musicianship, that has been cultivated and developed over a ridiculously energised career that started back in 1982.
The pulsating, super-charged bare-chested glory that is the Hard-Ons has now been given an extra dimension with the return of Keish. Here comes the pigeon-hole busting punk-metal-powerpop release of the year.
Spoon fed a diet of punk, rock, and metal, this super heavy four piece all the way from Wollongong write funny songs that are a bit political. Loud and fast, their live shows are stroke inducing, knee busting, beer spitting fun!
They have supported the likes of Tumbleweed, Cosmic Psychos, The Meanies, Magic Dirt, The Hard-Ons, Camp Cope, The Coathangers (USA), RVIVR (USA), and Screaming Females (USA).
Babymachine released their foetal album 'Birth Is Imminent' through their own label Toxic Shock Records back in 2003, and followed it up with a long overdue second album 'Appetite for Reproduction' in 2011.
The band's third album "Abort! Abort! Abort!" was released in October 2019, a limited edition pressing of 100 with hand silkscreened covers. "Abort! Abort! Abort!" is a call to action against the broken systems of capitalism and corporate greed!
Dribs are a 3-piece band from Wollongong, NSW consisting of Brendan Neville (guitar/vocals), Nathan Krajnovic (drums) and Jack Malolakis (bass). You'll find us in few places; bumming around East Corrimal beach, sinking tins or making music in a sweaty hotbox down the road from the beach. Formed in late 2017, they've continued bashing out gigs, writing songs, snapping strings and always making time for everyone they can. They have a knack for having fun and getting past the point of remembering their lyrics, hoping one day a few people can sing them. Early in 2018 the boys' single "Something" had a great response from punters Australia-wide earning them their radio debut on Triple J. Between gigs, they write songs aiming to make you feel happy and jam along in your car, bedroom or in your Grandma's house. Dribs' music is all about having fun, so come to a show and find them for a drink and a good time.
