In October 1976 Dave Warner’s From the Suburbs performed for the very first time rocking and shocking the industry. The band went on to national success with music that has never been topped in its sense of unique Australian-ness and originality … until now, because The Suburbs are back and previewing a brand new Suburbs album for the very first time Sat Oct 29 at The Hotel Charles. The new album When features seven totally new tracks, a new version of Wimbledon and several other very early Suburbs songs never previously recorded. The line-up includes original Suburbs Tony Durant and Howie Johnstone, regular rhythm section Phil Bailey and Lloyd Gyi, Bill Beare (Fingerprints), Dick Haynes (Loaded Dice) and Nicole Binet. Come and hear Dave’s new songs performed for the first time in public along with a host of Suburbs classics like Kangaroo Hop, Mugs Game, Convict Streak, Suburban Boy and Nothing to Lose. To make the night even more special Tony Durant’s legendary psychedelic folk-band Fuchsia will support. After a gap of 40 years Fuchsia’s innovative music has been rediscovered by a new generation of European audiences and Tony has been regularly touring festivals in the UK and Scandinavia. This is going to be a great night, join us in the celebration. Renowned artists have done images inspired by the songs on the new album. The image featured here is “Snapchat” by Michael Doherty.
Tickets will be available from the Charles Hotel Bottle Shop and Ticketmaster.
