60 Seconds With… Redro Redriguez


Define your genre in five words or less: Stoner meets FM rock.

Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like? Rolling Stones meets Sonic Youth at a generator party in the California Desert.

So, someone is walking past as you guys are playing, they then go get a beer and tell their friend about you – what do they say? Heavy and soulful.

Which band would you most like to have a battle/showdown with? Hard to say, We’re an all star band with members of Dukes Of Deliciousness and My Left Boot, so I’m already competing with those bands for members.

What inspires or has influenced your music the most? American indie rock, southern rock, SST records, the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.

Describe the best gig you have ever played. The debut Redro Redriguez show at The Lyrebird back in September 2013.

What advice would you give to bands that are new on the Melbourne music scene? It’s a party, and you’ve invited everyone; be kind to your guests and don’t take it too seriously.

When are you playing live/releasing your album/EP/single/etc? We’re playing Friday March 21 at the Prince Of Wales. Working on doing an EP this year with Dukes Of Deliciousnes and Grindhouse.
