Tim Rogers and Hard-Ons are keen on causing as much confusion as possible in the group's new video, 'Lite As A Feather'.
Featuring footage of the four band members playing along to the song in isolation but mixing up their roles, it shows Tim’s voice coming out from wannabe crooner Blackie, Blackie’s guitar riffs thrashed out by drummer Murray Ruse, bass player Ray Ahn doing a woeful job miming to Murray’s insane drumming and Tim pretending he’s Ray on the 4-string. If you don’t know who’s who in the Hard-Ons these days, this clip isn’t going to clarify it for you.

The Hard-Ons came out of the multicultural South-West Sydney suburb Punchbowl and scored a never-bettered 17 consecutive number one hits on the Australian independent charts.
The band undertook their 19th European tour in 2018, including a set at Hellfest alongside Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Joan Jett. Soon to celebrate 40 years together, their new album with Rogers will be their 13th.
Directed by Descent Into the Maelstrom: The Radio Birdman Story director Jonathan Sequeira, the video for ‘Lite As A Feather’ is for fans of ’70s bubblegum cards, among other things.
It’s the second single from the band’s forthcoming album I’m Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken, which is their first album with Rogers, after their debut single ‘Hold Tight’. The group are hoping to announce live shows soon.
I’m Sorry Sir, That Riff’s Been Taken is out October 8, and currently available for pre-order and pre-saving.
