Shihad will headline CherryRock017 in AC/DC Lane Melbourne.
Cherry owner and booker James Young is losing his shit, “Shihad have been Antipodes Rock n Roll Royalty for over 20 years, with the New Zealanders having 8 studio albums, 4 #1 albums, 5 Platinum albums, 4 Gold albums and 20 Top 40 singles. And now they bring their legendary live show, in one exclusive performance, to the AC/DC Lane Main Stage to headline CherryRock017. What a coup. I’m fizzing.”
“And as you should already know….We’ve got legendary San Francisco garage punks Dwarves. Southern rock/psychobilly from Atlanta’s Nashville Pussy. The incredible female two-piece, Bala, from Spain, who sound like Patti Smith out front of Motorhead. Bottlecap must be the bastard triplets of fellow Swedish rockers The Hives and The Hellacopters. Plus the best rock n roll coming from our Indonesian neighbours in Mooner and Kelompok Penerbang Roket (KPR).
“But lest we forget our locals. We had to have Totally Unicorn from Wollongong, who ripped River Rocks a new arsehole last year. The sexy psych-blues of Child. Debbie Harry out front of Eddy Current Suppression Ring is how I see lo-fi garage punksters Amyl & The Sniffers. From the “ninch” (Mornington Peninsula) comes the band on everyone’s lips Stiff Richards, plus the 2016 Cherry Awards Act of the Year, Zombitches. And we’ve still got one final Ace up our sleeve. So stay tuned…”
