The Schizophonics announce Melbourne farewell show at The Curtin

The Schizophonics

The San-Diego garage rockers are bidding farewell to Melbourne with one final gig.

Hot off the back of Tent Pole Festival, The Schizophonics are heading back to the US of A, but not before their final electrifying show on March 13 at The Curtin, where they’ll be joined by local favourites Blowers.

Returning on the back of their latest LP Hoof It, The Schizophonics will reaffirm your faith in rock’n’roll.

Over the last few years this high-energy trio, which is formed around the dynamic husband and wife duo of singer/guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers, has built up a formidable reputation around the world as an explosive live act – one that taps into the same unstoppable combination of unbridled rock’n’roll soul energy and showmanship that fueled The MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom in late ’60s Detroit.

In addition to The MC5, The Schizophonics’ wild live show is heavily influenced by artists like James Brown, Iggy Pop, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix and The Sonics.

This electrifying outfit first plugged themselves in back in 2009, and have since released three albums (their first, Land Of The Living, on legendary LA label Sympathy For The Record Industry) and numerous EPs and singles – most recently a blinding cover of The MC5’s unreleased early showstopper Black To Comm backed with a surprise cover of Roxy Music’s Remake/Remodel.

Not content to exist at the very centre of 21st Century international garage rock circles, they’ve also toured Europe backing the ‘Mexican Elvis’ El Vez (as The Little Richards) and done shows with brass, keys and backing vocalists as The Schizophonics Soul Revue.

Celebrate the eight hour working day with them at The Curtin on March 13. Grab your tickets by heading here.
