Ultimate Aus Playlist: Skegss
Unless it’s the likes of Tame Impala or Jagwar Ma, we’re often sparring to hear word about music acts from the land of Aus. We managed to grab faithful contenders, garage rock trio Skegss to hear about the new discoveries that are working their way through the Australian music scene and (hopefully) over to our shores.
The threesome hail from Byron Bay, on the country’s South East coast and have ventured out on tour across Australia, America, Canada and Europe. Prior to the release of their album ‘MY OWN MESS’ in September 2018, the band had launched several extended plays and singles which have put them firmly on the map. Not ones to shy away from long nights and wild antics, they’ve got a youthful edge that sets them up as ones to watch in the surf lead scene. Check out who Skeggs say are also making waves from across the ocean.
Dumb Punts – Mad
We are on tour with them at the moment. About to play Dublin.
Pist Idiots – Princes
Insanely good band. They are from Revesby and are one of the most well-quenched bands around.
The Pinheads – Not Like You
They just got back from almost a year on hiatus and they were dearly missed. They just dropped a new song and ya gotta listen to it.
Scabz – Starting Line
They are the biggest legends ever we just finished a tour with ’em. They have a song about Brett Lee.
Israeli Chicks – I Love You Mum
Lovely Kiwi guys except Lew but I think he did live there for a year. They let us jam in their garage in Byron.
Camouflage Rose – Taste
We were on an island and Larry stayed in the pool for 4 hours with a smile on his face and then on the bus we were chanting his name.
Dune Rats – Ratbags
The day 1’s that have always supported us.
Totty – Uncomfortable
Max Kell and Chris. Chris is good to drink to toxic poison with.
Drunk Mums – Urban Cowboy
They just dropped Urban Cowboy. Best live band in Australia.
Gooch Palms – Marfa Lights
Basically the Australian Version of Gucci Mane. Need we say more?
White blanks – I Don’t Wanna (Die)
