Live Review: Sugar Army + Udays Tiger - The Tote (30.06.12)

Warming the stage was local duo Udays Tiger who are a ‘coupla blokes’ that play grunge infused punk with a venomous fury. Live their music is like an untamed beast, gnashing its teeth with an unruly passion and ripping the bandroom to shreds with the sheer ferocity of its approach. Devin De Araujo and Nathan Morris are the real thing. Their sound is unaffected and unpretentious - just no nonsense, ball breaking rock that will leave you in a sweaty, quivering heap on the floor.

Sugar Army + Harlequin League + Young Lovers + Howl - The Evelyn (19.3.09)


Starting the night off was Ballarat quintet, Howl, with their catchy pop-infused punk anthems. I’ve seen them several times before and they never cease to amaze me. The five teenage boys’ tunes have a snide, sneaky appeal to them, expressed through witty lyrics well beyond their years, fast-paced keyboard melodies and dirty, rigid guitar pulling it all together.
