Bio

Spewing forth from the gutters of Sydney comes L.U.S.T. with their in your face, take no prisoners brand of underground rock and roll. Musically drawing inspiration from rock bands such as AC/DC and Motorhead, with an attitude fueled by punk bands like The Ramones and Sex Pistols. L.U.S.T. rock loud, hard and heavy. L.U.S.T. have a history on the road ripping apart venues, playing to sold-out audiences across Australia. Touring with the likes of: - Ace Frehley (KISS), - Nashville Pussy (US) - The Screaming Jets - The Party Boys (featuring Angry Anderson, John Swanee, Kevin Borich, Izzy Osmanovic, Harry Brus and Mick O'Shea). L.U.S.T. have shaken the walls of the Enmore Theatre in Sydney (NSW), the Palace Theatre in Melbourne (VIC), HQ in Adelaide (SA), the Tivolo in Brisbane (QLD) and Metropolis in Fremantle (WA). Recently L.U.S.T. have released their debut album 'First Tattoo' to the world. Recorded in Sydney with Peter Northcote (Producer), then mixed in the US by Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Buckcherry, White Zombie and Dethklok to name a few). Song 'SEE YOU IN HELL' from the album has already been chosen by MTV as the theme for Australian 'Headbangers Ball'. Tuesday nights at 11pm AEST, on MTV Classic. The album is due for release in January 2011 when L.U.S.T. hit the road with Kevin Borich's Party Boyz, featuring Angry Anderson, John Swan, Kevin Borich, Izzy Osmanovic, Harry Brus and Mick O'Shea. The 'Back From Exile' tour spans regional NSW in every direction. Meeting on the streets of Sydney as teenagers in 2004, L.U.S.T. are a gang fronted by: - eternal man of mystery with pipes from hell Mikey Rollins - motorcycle riding ladies man Ronnie Simmons on guitar - aggressive tattooed party animal Sindy Sinn on drums - and obnoxious punk rocker Chris Garey on bass. They have been thrown out of nearly every bar in the country, trashed every hotel and leave a trail of broken glass and hearts where ever they go. With a fearless 'get your hands dirty' approach to relentless touring, they've worked hard to earn a fierce and dedicated legion of fans. L.U.S.T. are an unsigned diamond in the rough who aren't sitting around waiting to be discovered. ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW. DISTRIBUTED BY MGM. WWW.THEBANDLUST.COM

Top-notch punk rock at its best. This one evokes memories of the Ramones with its huge, simple main riff before launching into a ballsy Steve Jones-style solo. If you ever loved punk from the seventies, or music to piss off your neighbours (and some of your friends), then this song should be on your list.
