Find out all about Australia‘s newest and most authentic 70‘s styled rockers. working towards an European tour next year after they signed the deal with Bad Reputation. Their greatest musical influences are Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Humble Pie, Mountain, Ringo Starr.
‘Firebird‘ is their powerhouse debut - rock music as it should be with swagger and attitude. The band‘s main strength is taking their blues infused classic rock sound and making it vibrant rather than just regurgitating tired old formulas. This four-piece are an impressive, tight outfit and there is very little flab on this lean, mean album which packs a one hell of a punch. Serving up rattlesnake rockers like, "Free", "Break Me", "Black Voodoo", "Great Northern Highway" and "Silent Scream" while also dishing out a couple of laid back bluesier numbers like, "Obsession" and "Tonight We Die". Close your eyes and it reminds you of Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes and their music shares similar qualities. They have an ace up their sleeve though in uitar Operator‘ Mark De Vattimo. Mark seems to enjoy the freedom of not being the frontman and is a perfect marriage to Craig‘s guitar playing. Couple this to a tight rhythm section in Simon Hallet and Nick Dudman and you have a winning combination that delivers a great live sound.
