Friday 8th February saw iconic local punk band The Painters & Dockers celebrate the 30th anniversary of their classic and highest selling album, KISS MY ART.
The band were due to do this in 2018 but a serious head injury saw singer Paulie Stewart hospitalised and unable to perform.
“Things looked pretty bad there for a while as I had bleeding on the brain. Three times they were wheeling me in for an emergency operation, only to call it off at the last minute for fear of complications”. “I’ve had to wait but the good news is I am fully operational and can’t wait to Dock again,’’ he said. “Doing live shows with the Dockers is definitely the best medicine you can have.’’
The Painters And Dockers, who recently hosted RAGE and also appeared in the CLASSIC COUNTDOWN series, performed February 8th 2019 at Max Watts, Melbourne, to mark the 30th anniversary of KISS MY ART. This classic album included their highest charting singles NUDE SCHOOL and DIE YUPPIE DIE. Also appearing on the bill will be disco funksters The Sugar Fed Leopards, Batz and The Desolettes.The Dockers will be doing many songs off KISS MY ART and other favourites, including the new single, HOLIDAY ON ICE.
