Attack The Drones

The Drones at The Hi Fi, Sat 16/09/2006

I managed to catch Darling Downs, which has Kim Salmon (The Scientists, Beasts of Bourbon, The Surrealists) on accoustic guitar and Ron Peno from Died Pretty. They managed to get some sort of attention from the crowd but sort of folk tunes, arms movement from Ron like he was flying, got some people to stand up and buy some beers.

After some time, the drones came on the stage, awarding winning band, I had heard some of there music, bought a CD of there's and was also keen to see what all the hype was about. The crowd was mixed, sprinkled with a range of gigs goers from Bogans to Museos. They're music you could say is very Australian sounding (WTF does that mean, I don't know), lots of guitars doing stuff, with some vocals. When they did come on stage they did announce we're playing new stuff, but as I'm not a crazy fan, unlike the guy who stood next me, I couldnt tell you if this was true.

After watching them, seeing what the hype was about, wasnt the most inspiring gig, lots of people out there doing music with guitars, which in the end of the day is starting to get borring.

The Drones 'I Don't ever want to change' from there new album.
