Our Artist of the Month ‘The Bungalows’are half way thru their album tour, and word on the streets the Gerringong boys have been kickin ass. We caught up with Matthew Gannon (bass) for a little chat.
So how’s the tour going? Just arrived back from the northern nsw / queensland leg and it was sweets. Too much fun for one weekend.
Now that you are half way thru tour are there any stand out shows so far? Probably the Great Northern at Byron, Pirates Alive and Dolphins ripped the joint up and there was a great crew there, few friends from home, the sunny bunch and lots of other lovelies moving and shaking.
How are the crowds reacting to the new material? The shows were a lot of fun, plenty of dancing so I certainly think the folks are enjoying the new stuff.
Are there any cool bands out there you’d like to recommend? Plenty, we were lucky to get a great bunch along, Pirates Alive, Dolphins, Vamps, Boss Moxi.
So when this tour ends, what’s next for The Bungalows? Well we demoed a new tune with our buddy Trigan at SAE while we were in Byron and hopefully when this round of shows wind up, we can get another bunch sorted for the warmer months. In the meantime figuring new tunes for the next album and relaxing.
So what’s been getting air time on the car stereo on the road? Congo Dave with his new tune Leper and Pretty Star, Alexander Ebert with Alexander – hell of an album, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, Mr Lennon and some killer community radio stations.
