THE 'GONG ROCKS!

 

Wollongong NSW has a great tradition of throwing up some great down and dirty rock acts and Bruce is another great Aussie Rock band you have to hear. If you like your rock and roll sounding like it’s been dragged through the gutter after a few too many VBs then the unholy garage rock of Bruce! Is just what the doctor ordered. Formed from the ashes of Hy-Test (who we loved) Bruce! Just turns up the volume that little bit more.


Cunningly every member of the band also goes by the name of Bruce, which does remind you of that old Monty Python sketch, but it’s the music that really does the talking.


What you get is 13 tracks of foot to the floor rock and roll played like there is no tomorrow in a bar surrounded by Zombies: it’s just a matter of time before you give in.


Check out tracks like ‘Hell Gig’ that opens proceedings, or the amazing ‘Screams of Silence’ and tell us you don’t have a new favourite new local band!
