SAMOAN PUNKS is a New York / Buddy Holly / Ritchie Valens / blind love inspired pop soul punk – music project by Samoan, Sydney based music maker Mr Ray Lalotoa (Fait Accompli/Goons of Doom).
Following a three-week tour of the USA with Goons of Doom in August 2011, a week spent in New York lay the foundations where spontaneous ideas were thought of then recorded pretty much on the spot. After a week of messing with his lap top using a guitar, mic and drums, Ray had himself an album.
EVERYDAY (a Buddy Holly cover) and THE FUTURE (a song loosely based on the Miranda July movie of the same name) are the first two tracks taken from the debut album ‘LAST NIGHT IN NEW YORK – TAKIN BUDDY HOLLY TO KARAOKE!’ which will be released shortly online thru MAKEyourself RECORDS
The first SAMOAN PUNKS gig takes place at Beach Rd Hotel, Bondi this Saturday at the birthday party / art exhibition of local Bondi legend Nick Hernandez
