Bio

Ironside are not reinventing the wheel, let's just get that out of the way first. They're hoping that people will find something likeable in the simplicity of what is on offer... straight up, blues-influenced, drunk-rock! Evidently it's paying off as the band has in the past 18 months graced the stage with such bands as newly reformed seminal Australian punk-band ‘X’, The Prehistorics (Syd), Midget (Melb), DZ Deathrays, Violent Soho, HITS, Los Huevos, Giants of Science and were selected via competition to play a guest slot on 4ZZZ's Brain Banana (Zed's big annual fundraising event) alongside Cosmic Psychos (Melb) and Teargas. Next stop is Grong Grong, the only Australian band to be signed to Alternative Tentacles! After the departure of long serving drummer Nathan, Ironside have welcomed aboard Graham "Band Aid" Brown on the skins. Graham's pedigree includes several seminal Brisbane bands and a recent whirlwind tour of the UK with Gordon Gano of Violent Femmes. Like Daniel and Darren, he sports very appropriate facial hair and has a similar enthusiasm for beer and blues! Ironside have been working closely with Murray Paas from Foundry Sound to produce a debut album, each track more raw and gritty than the last. With just a few finishing touches and a couple more new tracks to be laid, the album is set for independent release in April 2012.

The guitar tones are so sweet and dirty at the same time.. like i wish my girlfriend was.. this song has a great 'screw it all lets get loaded and mess shit up' feel to it. I like it very much

Strong, Gritty Rock with a side of Blues. This is what Rock music should sound like.
