It’s time brothers and sisters, to kick out the jams again with San Diego’s dynamite Schizophonics, whose first two brief and BC (before covid) Australian visits in 2019 and early 2020 back blew the minds and burst the hearts of everyone who saw them.
Returning on the back of their latest LP ‘Hoof It’, the Schizophonics will reaffirm your faith in rock’n’roll. Over the last few years this high-energy trio, which is formed around the dynamic husband and wife duo of singer/guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers, has built up a formidable reputation around the world as an explosive live act – one that taps into the same unstoppable combination of unbridled rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled The MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom in late ’60s Detroit. In addition to The MC5, The Schizophonics’ wild live show is heavily influenced by artists like James Brown, Iggy Pop, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix and The Sonics: Shindig magazine described their live show as “like watching some insane hybrid of Wayne Kramer, James Brown, and the Tasmanian Devil” and Spotify has hailed them as the “wildest live band in America”.
Joining the Schizophonics for this evening of outrageous energy and great garage rock are the Unknowns. Hailing from South East Queensland and sharing members and a record label with The Chats, the Unknowns are set to release their second ‘East Coast Low’ on Bargain Bin Records around the time of this tour. Combining ’70s style punk and power pop in a manner not dissimilar to the classic first three Ramones album, The Unknowns’ music is timelessly exciting and fun for all ages!
