Tuff Palace & The Servo presents
Leadfinger // Penny Ikinger Band // The Couch Professors
LEADFINGER bring their twin guitar attack and legendary fashion sense to THE SERVO, Port Kembla for the first ever time on FRIDAY 10TH JUNE with stellar supports, PENNY IKINGER BAND from Melbourne and Wollongong locals THE COUCH PROFESSORS.
Having returned to playing live after a 3 year hiatus, Leadfinger released their 6th and best album to date ’Silver & Black’ earlier this year. Leadfinger formed in 2007 and their timeless song writing, inventive guitar work and heart-on-sleeve delivery has won them plenty of fans in Australia and Europe. They are a genuine rock’n’roll band with a unique brew of influences that stretch back through the 70’s & 80’s underground rock and punk eras, through the classic Stones and Dylan records of the 60’s, the blues and beyond. The new album ’SILVER & BLACK' is out on Vinyl/CD/Digital through Golden Robot Records (Sydney).
“Every song on ’Silver & Black is a winner, each rich with colour and diversity. It stands as Leadfinger’s magnum opus - and it should rightfully open new doors for the band” - AUSTRALIAN ROCK SHOW
Fuzz queen, sonic chanteuse, primal mistress of pop – it’s hard to pin PENNY IKINGER down in easy comparisons or simple terms. Melbourne based, she has toured the globe and recorded with musicians from the U.S.A, Japan, Europe and Australia, to great acclaim and instant fandom. Known for her mind warping, note bending dirty rock, she also switches tempo to deliver classic pop tunes with shades of light and dark in a rich sonic soundscape. Her latest album TOKYO is an international collaboration with legendary Radio Birdman guitarist Deniz Tek. PENNY IKINGER will be joined by her big band from Melbourne for this exclusive show.
"Incredibly cool femme fatale laid-back noise rock by Australian guitar beauty... Ikinger's voice and amazing guitar work makes this one helluva solid piece of female rock ..." LOWCUT MAGAZINE (Denmark).
With three voices, three instruments and three distinct songwriters, Wollongong based THE COUCH PROFESSORS are as comfortable with unabashedly loud indie rock as they are dialling it back to let the harmonies cut through. THE COUCH PROFESSORS’ unique sound is as influenced by C86 British indie pop as it is by American indie rock and Australian 80's jangle. Maintaining domestic harmony in a pandemic while hosting weekly rehearsals means they gig fit are ready to take on the world.
