I am currently a 17 year old Australian high school drop out, focusing on improving myself musically, and I spend most of my time writing and discovering music.

The Bermondsey Joyriders + Fallen Leaves Claiming all the credentials of a bonafide 77 super group, The Bermondsey Joyriders is a band pooling the hard-won experience and history of three veteran punks with support from Garage Punk favourites The Fallen Leaves A welcome return for both.Fri 30 January 2015at 08:00 PMArtists PerformingThe Bermondsey JoyridersThe Fallen Leaves Buy Tickets Claiming all the credentials of a bonafide 77 super group, The Bermondsey Joyriders is a band pooling the hard-won experience and history of three veteran punks. Founding members Gary Lammin (vocals / guitar) and Martin Stacey (bass) cut their teeth in the Joe Strummer-produced Little Roosters and Generation X precursors Chelsea respectively, whilst recent recruit Chris Musto (drums) is a sticksman of some credentials having previously played with Johnny Thunders, Joe Strummer and Nico, to name but a few! More than the sum of their impressive punk rock heritage however, The Bermondsey Joyriders have won praise for splicing those sounds from suburbs with raw blues and Lammins startling slide guitar emerging with a sonic signature that is undeniably all their own. Given just 12 hours (!) in the studio to lay down their self-titled 2008 debut, they managed to produce a record which Classic Rock magazines Carol Clerk deemed to have pulled off a really impudent mix of influences, and which Guitarist magazines Charles Shaar Murray felt had achieved a unique spin on punk-blues. Now with second album Noise and Revolution The Bermondsey Joyriders show listeners what theyre really capable of. Given all the hours of studio time the budget would enable over a number of weeks, and under the direction of Cure and Depeche Mode producer David M Allen, the band have created an ambitious concept record, which fully realizes the ideas that won acclaim when merely sketched out on their debut. Gleefully burning the three chord rulebook, Noise and Revolution finds real punk rebel spirit in blues, soul and 60s psychedelic sounds, but most radically twists the 77 blueprint with the words provided to it by the inimitable John Sinclair. Acting as narrator on spoken segments between the song, performance poet, MC5 manager and counter culture icon, Sinclair tells Noise and Revolutions story with a poets pace and rhythm, a wicked humour, and the relevant, rare life experiences to make his parts captivatingly convincing. In his review of its premiere performance, PureRawk.com writer Andy James declared Noise and Revolution an early album of the year contender, saying this is tight, angry music with something to say and a valid point to make. Be honest, how many new bands can you honestly say that about nowadays?. Vive le Rock magazine, when giving their verdict on Joyriders support set to Marky Ramone which ended to cries from an encore from a crowd entirely fresh to the tunes, demanded readers see em at all costs. This is most definitely the time to join the revolution and come along for the ride! Melodic garage punk quartet featuring Rob Symmons from the legendary Subway Sect on guitar. The Fallen Leaves hatred of one another is intense. But it is out of this creative conflict that pop music played with passion rather than precision is born.
