Snap Scene: The Casanovas, Forum, 3rd Dec 2021

Formed in Melbourne in 1999, The Casanovas were founded on the enlightened but ambitious premise that it might be possible to embrace both the flamboyance and fun of KISS and the pub punk venom of The Dictators and The Powdermonkeys.

The idea of the name ‘The Casanovas’ was partly inspired by the look of the ‘Casablanca’ records logo that featured on early Kiss vinyls that they all grew up listening to, as well as a healthy dose of irony, (none of them were getting laid!).
