IF you like hard rock mu­sic and live in St Marys then you’re in luck.

Rock­ers 5 Way Ad­dic­tion are set to play at St Marys RSL Club this Fri­day and will fea­ture songs from their de­but al­bum Play It Loud.

Band man­ager Bobby Rus­sell said the group was ex­cited for the gig – only their sec­ond gig in their ca­reer. “We did an­other gig about a month and a half ago and it was a really good gig,” he said. “It was good to kind of clear up the cob­webs,” he said.

While they may be short on time to­gether, the group are big on ex­pe­ri­ence. “This gig is pretty im­por­tant to us,” he said. “I’m 42 and the singer is 52. This is kind of our salute to rock and roll.”

There was once the old say­ing of sex, drugs and rock and roll but th­ese days; med­i­ca­tions to elim­i­nate gout are the drug of choice for th­ese men. “It (was) all about the sex, drugs and rock and roll for us, but nowa­days there are dif­fer­ent WHO: 5 Way Ad­dic­tion WHERE: St Marys RSL Club WHEN: Fri­day, Novem­ber 27 COST: Tick­ets are $10 pre-sale and $15 at the door DE­TAILS: 9623 6555 kind of drugs be­cause I have got a heart con­di­tion, the other guys have got chronic gout and arthri­tis and all that kind of stuff, so times have changed,” Rus­sell said.

The al­bum, which is a labour of love for the group, has taken the band a to­tal of just eight days to record.

“Me and the lead guitarist Rob Car­ney ... have been work­ing to­gether be­cause we were in an­other band be­fore this, so we have a lot of songs and stuff from the other band that we didn’t use,” he said.

“Once we got the singer and the lead guitarist, it took us prob­a­bly around ... eight days to record the al­bum.”

Fans can catch 5 Way Ad­dic­tion at St Marys RSL Club on Fri­day.
