BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL to us are one of Sydney’s and Australia’s most under rated punk bands. They make catchy rock n’ roll tunes which can be delivered with the fierceness of a bullet to the head or a machine gun into the air with bullets raining on the people like new years day.
If these guys were from Detroit we’d all be singing their praises!
If they were from Chicago they’d have a street named after them!
If they were from L.A they’d probably be dead!
And if they were from New York City we’d all want to be their best friends.
But they are from Sydney and you all need to deal with reality and get off that silly Paul Simon trip and get back to Punk Rock n’ Roll brothers and sisters!
See you at the show!

We invited some of our favourite Sydney bands THE JONES RIVAL,CHICKS WHO LOVE GUNS, FAIT ACCOMPLI, FIRESAINT, STICKY FINGERS, THE CHITTICKS, THE RUMINATERS, BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL to pop around for a little Q & A.
We were originally going to make the videos really short, but all the bands had some really interesting answers and that in itself was kinda refreshing.
This is the first part to a series of videos we are putting together to help push a new live music night RIOT RADIO which we are launching at THE BACKROOM in Sydney on THURSDAY 11 APRIL.

So our friends at BLANK_SPACE GALLERY based out of Crown St, Surry Hills in Sydney are turning 10. Some amazing artists have exhibited there over the years, including OZZIE WRIGHT who brought his Beaches Punk style to the City a few years back. We also came across the Pop Art of a young BEN FROST there when he was just starting out.
Both these artists and many more are currently kicking ass all over the place and that’s thanks to galleries like BLANK_SPACE and many more like them who have given opportunities to struggling artists over the years.
So we got in on the party and are helping BLANK_SPACE celebrate by bringing some great live music to the party. So get yourselves down to OXFORD ART FACTORY GALLERY BAR next Thursday 4 April and help us celebrate the good times.
A huge list of amazing artist talent (check the mega list below) will be exhibiting on the night with all proceeds going to the DOGGIE RESCUE charity. the night will then be brought to a rock n’ roll croscendo with the help of some of our favourite new and local bands on the scene right now;

So we got a call from the good folks at BONDI BOWLARAMA and they said “could we get the hook ups on all the dope bands you guys know?” so we said “yeah! why not?” and then we hooked them up with music by some of our favourite bands. A few days later they came back to us with these dope videos and we said “thanks that shit is like WOW!”
It was a sick time last week in Bondi where some of the most amazing skaters poured into town to show Bondi how skating in a pool should be done, from the amazing Steve Caballero to Pedro Barros, our very own Jack Fardell to Bucky Lasek and even legends like McGill and Hosoi, dat shit was Hectic! So now some amazing bands will have a life long connection with these amazing legends till the internet ends. Radical!

Artist: BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL
City: Sydney, NSW
Style: Garage Rock
Members: Jessie D, Bang Bang Katie, JC
BANG! BANG! ROCK N’ ROLL are a rockin Garage Rock band who have been smashing live shows all around Sydney in 2012. Their high energy punk assault is catchy, up beat and infused with the right intensity where they keep it pop enough that it isn’t cheesy and heavy enough without getting myspace emo on your ears. This three-piece really strike up a good balance and considering what’s on offer on youth radio today Bang! Bang! should already be out there killing it.
Front man Joel has destroyed around 5 guitars this year alone and their live attitude to rock n’ roll is all in no retreat no surrender. It seems like we all want to read about rock n’ roll shows gone wild, but in reality someone is trying to keep rock n’ roll safe and boring. Who really knows?
Maybe someone will grow enough balls to actually give these guys a decent tour support in 2013, it’s what most of these bands really need – support. Their show is tight! They’ve got attitude! They have songs! I mean seriously…
