The SPAZZYS are back !
The Spazzys are back! Formed in Melbourne in 2000 by sisters Kat and Lucy and their friend Ally, the band hasn’t released an album in Australia since 2004, the Top 40 Aloha! Go Bananas.
In the interim, they’ve still played many shows around Australia since, dabbled in side projects and even acquired a law degree here and there, but finally – FINALL Y – we see the long-delayed release of their second album, Dumb Is Forever.
Dumb Is Forever was recorded in 2006 in LA by Charles Fisher (Radio Birdman/Hoodoo Gurus) and was scheduled for release within the next 6 months but then got caught up in a seemingly never-ending label/management dispute which saw the release caught up in legal limbo until it was resolved in the County Court in the band’s favour.
Now it’s finally seeing release, and the band is back in action, playing a series of shows up the east coast, as well as media dates and even the prospect of new recordings in 2013.
Dumb Is Forever is an awesome blend of girl-group vocal harmonies, snotty Joan Jett-style
diatribes and ripping, Ramonesy guitar punk, and the big production gives the music the huge punch that it needs.
The Spazzys have played the Big Day Out, Pyramid and Falls Festival and still enjoy a huge following: due to popular demand, Dumb Is Forever is seeing the light of day and the band are back in full gear.
