Nick Barker and the Reptiles played loud Rock n Roll in Pubs. A whole lot of Pubs. From 1988 to1993 they drove up and down the east coast ,across to SA and even WA. Sometimes 3 gigs in a day, mostly 5 nights a week, most weeks of the year . In between they recorded 2 Albums 1989’s “Goin’ to Pieces” and 1990’s “After the Show “( made in Memphis Tennessee) and one EP 1992’s “Loose” .
But their stock in trade was live gigs . They drank a lot of Beer, invented a card game (don’t ask) and a cocktail (vodka and staminade) and won the hearts of a lot of hardcore Australian Rock n Roll fans.
So just for the hell of it Nick Barker and the Reptiles are gonna play one and one only Melbourne show at the Corner Hotel on 6th May and the V and S’s are on us.
