BAND’S WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE
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.”
