SLICK46 are a working class, street punk band based in Melbourne, Australia.
After forming in late 1998, Slick46 have established themselves as one of Australia’s hardest working & now longest running, street punk bands. During this time the band has always been busy, writing, recording, playing countless shows in Melbourne, as well as repeatedly touring to major cities all over Australia. Also In recent years the Band has toured the west coast & south western states of the U.S.A four times.
Tim (Guitar) Owen (Bass) & Paul (Drums) have produced a number of releases including the ‘Kicked Out Of Everywhere’ E.P.1999 (out of print) “Stand In Line’ E.P. 2001 & the ‘Move Aside’ E.P. 2006. As a result of Slick46’s 2007 U.S tour, the band established a working relationship with U.S street punk label Longshot Music. Longshot went on to release Slick46’s ‘I Don’t Wanna’ album & a split 7’’ vinyl with U.S band the Harrington Saints in 2008. That year Slick46 teamed up with the Harrington Saints for a west coast U.S.A tour.
After more than ten years with the band, Owen decided to pursue other interests in early 2009. Flea now joined on bass & the band went on to record the ‘Young Love’ E.P released on Longshot Music & also Contra Records in Germany. Slick46 toured the U.S to promote their new record in late 2009.
2010 saw Slick46 touring & recording, releasing the "Hurry Up'' album in early 2011, once again on Longshot & Contra, followed by shows all around Australia to promote the album & a U.S tour in December of that year.
In 2012 Slick46 went on to release a retrospective compilation C.D "One Thing Led To Another" on Rebellion Records. It featured both new songs & old songs that had been re-recorded for this release. Owen rejoined the band for this recording session & some shows in 2012 to promote the record, playing 2nd guitar.
Now in 2013, the bands 15th year, Slick46 has just recorded new songs for a 7'' & also tracks for a split 7'' with Bricktop, from Tucson. Both these records will be available on the bands upcoming U.S tour in July. More details soon...
