Say hello to SMASH

Sleazy glam from Adelaide, Australia circa 1989.

Amazing that a band like this can go undiscovered.

 

Their original reels were coverted a short while back and they have launched a myspace page to feature the tracks.

Unfortunately the tapes suffered a bit of damage in storage but they are doing the best to restore them. Depending on how well they can be recvoered, one of the current crop of re-issue labels have gotta jump on these guys.

 

Is that Stevie Rachelle on vocals, or just his twin brother?!?!? These guys were sleazy glam, and lsitening to their songs... they make the candy harlots sound like church choir music.

 

Check them out!

I'm wondering if that Kick Start poster is the Aussie band who released 'Hook Line N' Sinker' etc. in the early-mid 90's

I've been trying to get hold of all their CD's/EP's for some time now but no such luck.

 

BTW Smash - 'Out For Blood' kicks ass!

Not too bad. 'The heartache remains' sounds to be the best of that lot. To be completely honest, not overly blown away but I'd still like to check out a disc. And it's cool to see a band like this come out of Australia.

    • Shitbomb - Shit in the Sky 😒   I found “Unbreakable” to at least be listenable; “Steel Hearts”… not so much. Unless a 3rd single turns out to be excellent, this will be a big skip. 
    • I thoroughly enjoyed 2017’s “Defying Gravity “, and was hoping for more of the same. “Good Luck Trying” is, unfortunately, not it. Sure hope there’s a lot better tracks to come…
    • Never been into BABYMETAL but am a huge Electric Callboy fan. Been listening to this song over and over again in the last four hours or so. Fucking love it. The Schillo Brothers have created another brilliant video. A lot of bands could learn a lot from them in the video production department.
    • These riffs sound like something from a bad nu-metal album released in the early 2000s. Slow, chuggy, terrible guitar tone and pointless pinch harmonies. The vocals are obviously unintelligible but instrumentally it isn't any good either. Who's going to buy this shit?
    • Zombie Attack - Tankard 
    • Forget Me Not - Bad English
    • 1/10...that is bad.
