The Drones at The Metro Theatre
Noise and garage band The Drones hit Sydney for a one-night only show to celebrate their new LP, Feelin Kinda Free
By Benjamen Judd
Feelin Kinda Free is a bad trip you can dance to. It’s a punch in the brain summed up by the first line of the album’s opener Private Execution: “The best songs are like bad dreams.”
Since hitting the music scene way back when in 1997, The Drones have become one of the country’s most revered live acts known for their raw energy and formidable talent.
Despite turnover of members, The Drones’ have remained consistent in their politico-punk inspired sound.
In 2015 they earned the ire of right-wing journalist Andrew Bolt with the infamous track, ‘Taman Shud’, with the lyrics “I don’t care about no Andrew Bolt”.
According to Bolt The Drones, and their music, were “stamping on the ashes of the west’s musical traditions”.
If that’s not enough reason to get out and support one of Australia’s best punk and garage bands today we don’t know what is!
The Drones will perform at the Metro Theatre on May 14.
624 George Street, Sydney
