Remember back to those great days when Rock ‘N’ Roll was about Marshall stacks, Jack Daniels and tattoos? That feeling that what you were listening to was your own personal statement, that it was somewhat dangerous, but also something that spoke only to you, and no matter what else happened in your life, Rock and Roll would never let you down ?
Remember how bands like KISS, Rose Tattoo and Motorhead made you feel? They made you say **** yeah, this is how I wanna do it”!!
The four guys in PISTENBROKE ( Donnie - Vocals and Guitar, Stu - Drums, Pete - Bass, Pete S - Lead Guitar ) remember this all to well, and finally in 2010, after knowing of each other from the South Oz Rock scene for a couple years founding members Pete E and Don said, stuff this, let’s crank up THE ’BROKE, write some tunes and see what happens !!!
2011 saw them playing many shows in South Australia and also recording their first four track E.P titled “The First One”, featuring staples of their live show Rock Out, Manwhore, Riding The Breeze and Forever in Black.
2012 saw the recording of our second pure rock n roll offering “The Second Coming” featuring our signature tune Pistenbroke and well as Lewd, Crude Tattooed, Good Girls and Nutward. Many interstate shows have been played, as well as confirmation for 2013's Woodstock Festival in South Africa! With a fresh new line up the future for the Broke is more gigs, more recording, more guitars….in fact more everything!!! PISTENBROKE’S plan is simple, to play anywhere, anytime, keep people smiling and singing along, keep the beer flowing, and above all keep it LOUD !!!!
