Tell us about your new tour?
In celebration of AC/DC’s 1975 album High Voltage we are playing a very special one off show at The Flying Saucer Club with Tony Currenti on drums for a set. To the surprise of many, Phil Rudd did not drum on the album recordings, in fact Tony played most of them! He was a session drummer for Vanda and Young in Sydney in the 70’s.
How would you describe your sound in food form and why?
Meat and Potatoes with a large dollop of Love Gravy. AC/DC’s music is just straight up, old school Blues inspired Rock n Roll. None of the fancy stuff, just horse it in!
Which song resonates most strongly and why?
Ride On. It nailed me to the floor the first time I heard it and I’ve never gotten over the song. To me it sounded like Bon knew he wasn’t going to be here for a long time. I really believe I could hear it in his voice. (Laura)
Any on the road anecdotes?
Never allow groupies into the band accommodation when there is only 1 room for the whole band to share overnight. It’s just not cricket.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
Dogs. They live for the moment and aren’t full of sh*t.
What’s next for you?
Lots of gigs. Check out AC/DSHE AUSTRALIA on facebook for future dates. We’re taking a weekend off in November though so I can have a baby, then we’ll be going to see AC/DC shortly after in December. Woo hoo!
What’s your scene?
AC/DSHE formed in August 2007 for a one off gig at The Espy in St Kilda. It rocked largely so we decided to keep doing it. We’ve had the pleasure of playing countless shows at The Espy, The Palace Theatre (may she rest in peace) and performed live on ABC2’s Dirty Laundry late in 2014. We forsee a bright future for the band as this music is timeless and all of our friends are bogans and will continue to support us and come to our shows.
Australia’s only female fronted AC/DC tribute this band has been performing across the country for over 7 years, with notable appearances at boogie festival, moto gp, philip island. When it comes to live performances on stage, this band has energy to burn, tight riffs and an authentic look.
Close your eyes and it’s as close to the real thing as you will get.
