WaL*ToNeS Gig at the Hilton Bowling club Friday the 22 of February 209
Wal*tones are CW (vocals & guitar), Hank (double bass & some vocals),
Pablo (drums & vocals) and Train Wreck (electric guitar & some vocals).
” Wal*tones play an intoxicating mix of Alt-Country, Americana, Cowpunk, Powerpop, Rockabilly and Spaghetti Western ”
Founding Members CW and Pablo are probably best known as members of legendary Perth band ‘The Waltons’ who first met Train Wreck when he was a member of ‘The Dixie Outlaws’ when both bands were supporting ‘Stray Cats’ .
Hank has played in many roots influenced bands including ‘Electromen’ and ‘Vibrolators”
” Wal*tones have performed at many Pubs, Clubs and Festivals over the years and offer a highly entertaining mix of originals plus their own take on some classic 80’s pop songs “
Wal*tones latest single ‘Minimum Wage’ recalls the blue collar Heartland rock of ‘Bruce Springsteen’ and ‘Steve Earle’.
Whilst the B Side ‘From Bollywood To Hell’ could be best described as ‘Ennio Morricone’ meets ‘The Clash’.
Wal*tones are primarily an original band but also offer up some compelling cover versions;
Rocksteady takes on ‘Tear in my Beer’ by Hank Williams & ‘Ubangi Stomp’ by Stray Cats,
A Balladeering ‘Barbados’ by Models, A Garageland ‘Should I Stay or Should I go’ by The Clash
Plus ‘Think it over’ & ‘Down the road’ from Steve Earle’s Classic ‘Guitar Town’ album.
