There wasn't enough rock on the Gold Coast, so five muso's got together to create The Green Whistle. In early 2010 former members of local metal outfits The Sever Project and Face of Mutiny, James, Olly, Chris, Noz and Stanger decided they wanted something different, something more fun, something less metal and something that rocked. They got together in a tiny room and after an hour of guitar squalls, feedback, furious drum and bass rhythmns coupled with gravel-guzzling vocals, they had their first song. Taking their queues from rock royalty The Stooges as well as the more moderns sounds of Kyuss, Faith No More and Turbonegro, The Green Whistle have created songs as rocking and as catchy as anything that's come out of the Gold Coast in recent years. After recording in Brisbane in October, 2010 and May 2011 released the six track Childproof Spectacular EP in late 2011. The band has been playing regular energetic live gigs around the Gold Coast and Brisbane since July, 2010. Inspired by loud noises of all descriptions, The Green Whistle have their sights set on playing anywhere that will have them and will satiate their appetite for noise, feedback, a kick-arse bar and, of course, rock and roll!
