Urban Assault

If any of the Oz guys here (In Sydney) are interested, I have a cover band going with other guys from the bike industry. Obviously we're called Urban Assault, and are playing at the Daily Planet next Friday (Penrith Hotel) (29/7) If you wanna see us, I'll post more dates etc when I remember/look them up, but we're playing at Dicey Rileys on the 10th August, andthe Fotzroy hotel at some time soon too, I'll let you know. lol
Here are a couple of demo tracks we did a while ago, but we're actually using the drummer from a band that used to be big called "Judge Mercy". He's playing with Rose Tattoo at the moment, so sometimes we'll have someone else, but next friday he's there, awesome drummer, worth it just to see him play. anyway, let me know what you think:

Re: Urban Assault

very nice Sook! Do you play an instrument, or do vocals, or both? And something I've always wondered about - why do you guys sound like Muricans when singing?!

Re: Urban Assault

Sounds really good Sook. Open Up your Eyes, has got to be my favorite song from Tonic, and you guys sound really good. Never was a big fan of Maroon 5, so I can't say I like that song. Any more samples?

Re: Urban Assault

I forgot I posted this, and just posted more info etc in the Oz section.
OK, we now have a website up : www.urbanassault.com.au The "recorded" tracks aren't too bad, but we aren't using that drummer anymore (you'd know why by the tempo increases etc in some of those songs) and are now using the talents of one "Mick O'Shae", drummer for Judge Mercy, Swannee and lately Rose Tattoo. Also just got back fromplaying the Big Brother after party. Worth just coming to check him out on his own, we never stop laughing at the amazing stuff he pulls off with his playing, he's a freak. We taped the last gig we did off the mixing desk, and there'll be samples of that up on the site soon. Hope some of you can come out and see us play, and have a few beers. Thanks for the kind words.

As for the accent, how **** would those songs sound if they were sung in the accent of Steve Irwin? hahahaha

Re: Urban Assault

Is the Bondi Lifesaver (wifeswapper) still around in Sydney? Had a very interesting evening there in the late 70s' . . .

Re: Urban Assault

Hahahahahahaaha I think Oz had more than it's fair share of "lifesaver" parties in the 70's. I still walk around looking suspiciously at people that look a little like me and wonder....... hahahaa.

I dunno, some of the other guys on here live that way, they might know. Sorry
