NEON TETRA

Ever evolving, Neon Tetra have been taking each opportunity to improve on their craft with both hands. 2017 proved a fruitful one for the band, as they landed lucrative support slots alongside the likes of Ecca Vandal and The Belligerents, while in March, Neon Tetra were selected to support UK superstar Robbie Williams in front of thousands in Adelaide.It’s this early momentum that Neon Tetra have taken with them into the studio over recent sessions and the vibrant energy the group has brought to their songwriting is felt no stronger than on their recently toured ‘Pollen’ EP. The music on this release is rich in soul, optimism and an undeniable beat to entice crowds out to the dance floor. With this record, Neon Tetra are putting another strong step forward and further expanding their output. More importantly, they’re bringing their hybrid synth disco-rock to a venue near you soon.

RAT CATCHER

The buzz around the catchy ocker-punk band Rat Catcher is undeniably contagious and so is their debut track ‘Seedy Morrow’. Once an iconic folk singer and voice of the Adelaide streets, the great Johnny Adams is back behind the mic and smashing out some straight-up good quality punk with his mates, which involves an all-star line-up with Davey Gibson (Spacebong, Funeral Moon), Ryan Garde (Meat Wallet), Matt Gully (GGDD), and Robby Bob (Scum Vegas). The melodies are catchy and comfortably droll, described by Pete ‘The Stud’ Howlett as an ocker Ian Curtis. All the while, the guitars invoke memories of Sunnyboys meets Turbonegro with the whole band propelling an energy that only Johnny himself can match, all the while, into the timelessness of his iconic Australian Folk. Rat Catcher will be dropping their Debut Album on Cassette and Digital Release January

NEXT GIG - Rat Catcher at Bendigo Hotel (melb) 8th Birthday January 27th
