    Saturday night at DV8, be there!) will be our last with drummer ,Budgie and bass player, Klunk. They have both decided to leave the band. There are no hard feelings at all in their decisions, we have all discussed it and feel it's the best thing for themselves and the band. We are all great mates and will continue to be. Myself and Ryan will be continuing without them and are now looking for a new drummer and bass player to work with. This aint the end, far from it! Rather, a new beginning for Bad Karma. So make sure you get down to DV8 next week and give them a big send off!!

    BAD KARMA are hitting the stage for the 3rd time with the RT fellas and we are very happy indeed to comply..Along with their touring main support BITTER SWEET KICKS this night is surely "bound for glory"... ROSE TATTOO... Rose Tattoo is an Australian rock and roll band, now led by Angry Anderson, that was formed in Sydney in 1976. Their sound is hard rock mixed with blues rock influences, with songs including "Bad Boy for Love", "Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw", "Nice Boys", "We Can't Be Beaten" and "Scarred for Life". Their first four albums were produced by Harry Vanda and George Young who also worked with AC/DC. They disbanded in 1987, subsequently reforming briefly in 1993 to support Guns N' Roses on an Australian tour. They reassembled again from 1998 and have since released two more studio albums. According to Australian rock music historian Ian McFarlane, Rose Tattoo are "one of the most revered bands of all time. The Tatts played peerless, street-level heavy blues with the emphasis on slide guitar and strident lyric statements". Guns N' Roses, L.A. Guns, Keel, Nashville Pussy, Motosierra, Pud Spuke and Helen Schneider have covered Rose Tattoo songs. On 16 August 2006, they were inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame. Five former members have died in recent years including four of the original recording line-up, Dallas Royall (1991), Peter Wells (2006), Ian Rilen (2006) and Mick Cocks (2009), and Lobby Loyde (2007), who was a member between October 1979 and September 1980. http://www.rosetattoo.com.au/ BAD KARMA... Melbourne’s ‘Bad Karma’ is the product of a hard rock foundation with a heavy influence from metal giants Metallica and Black Label Society, their debut 11 track album ‘Chasing Ghosts’ delivers a solid set of songs for any fan of music on the harder side of rock!!! A hard rock band made up of three musical misfits from Melbourne and one import from WA. With a sound described as a cross between Guns N Roses and Disturbed with some Pearl Jam thrown in, their music is big, heavy and of course, LOUD while still being melodic and thought-provoking. Simply put…..they fucking rock!! www.badkarmatheband.com.au ..or find us on facebook/myspace/twitter.. BITTER SWEET KICKS.. Bitter Sweet Kicks are a band spawned from the dirty sunshine gutter of St. Kilda and have been working hard around Melbourne's most well known pubs and venues ever since. The Kicks' energetic live shows are renowned for leaving the stage covered in blood, sweat and broken glass after they bash their way through a solid set of chaotic rock n' roll. Raw, splintering riffs, catchy as hell bass lines, belting drums and howling vocals come together in a mixture of ‘proto punk’ and old school bluesy rock to create a uniquely powerful sound that can only be described as real. http://www.bittersweetkicks.com/ http://soundcloud.com/bitter-sweet-kicks ROCK ON!
