The band's return to our shores after dominant performances back in March of last year isn't all that surprising; the band were so well received at every show they played, crowds not able to get enough of their drawn out psychedelic rock'n'roll. There are plenty of Australian influences on their sound, the band undeniably influenced by the early garage stylings of the Aztecs, Coloured Balls and Masters Apprecntices, as well as punk rock bands like The Saints and God.
These return shows are absolutely not to be missed, the band have just released their third album Long Island and it is an absolute gem. The band are playing together better than ever and the lead riffs and vocals of frontman Paul "Top Dollar" Major are better than they have ever been.
These are the dates.
