The Psychotic Turnbuckles

Turnbuckles v Hard-Ons

Almost 30 years after they first shared a stage, the Psychotic Turnbuckles and Hard-Ons are back to deliver a combination punch to unsuspecting Sydney fans. Arguably two of the hardest and fastest exponents of high-energy rock from the '80s still in business, this dream pairing will happen at Annandale Hotel on Saturday, November 30. They first crossed paths at the Vulcan Hotel in Ultimo in October 1984 and went on to play together many times. With their joint 30th anniversary year not far away, both bands thought it was high time to have a reunion.

The Psychotic Turnbuckles have been in the studio and some of the fruit of their labour will be given away at the gig as part of a free 10-track CD-EP for the first 200 fans through the door. It will be the first Turnbuckles studio release in a decade-and-a-half and this will be only their third Sydney gig since being lured out of seclusion a year ago. Hard-Ons are about to unleash the latest of their re-issue series, a re-tooled version of the "Love Is a Battlefield of Broken Hearts" and are fresh from a tour of New Zealand.

Filling out the bill are special guests, The Dunhill Blues, Australia's only Blues-Punk-Country-Surf-Garage-Rock-Psychedelic-Soul-Revival band who are in the middle of promoting their third and finest album, "Hulacide". The hard-working Dunnies have been on a tour that's taken them to four states so far and are chuffed to be part of an historic bill. This is an 18+ event.
