HOCKEY DAD

Where are you currently touring, and whats it’s like to get out and about touring to satellite/regional based shows (Australia + elsewhere?)

We just finished a small tour of Europe and a tour of a few states in the US and a Canadian tour with Dune Rats. We managed to squeeze in some recording in there as well.

When and why did you start playing?

Cause we were bored at home and had nothing else to do so we started playing.

What was the first tune(s) you learned?

The Living End’s entire discography.

Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?

Blokes doing 3 hour cover sets from an iPad down at the local RSL. They deal with the most hostile rowdy crowds around.

Have you ever been to or performed in Barooga or Albury before?, also is anything you look forward to checking out whilst in the area?

We’ve never played there before but we are looking forward to it. Hopefully someone can show us some cool stuff to do whilst we are there.

Coolest venue in Aus is Rad bar in Wollongong. We also played on a boat in holland which was sweet!

Which musicians in the scene have you learnt the most from?

Bad//Dreems taught us how to drink like champions!

Old Australian punk and rock definitely influenced us. As well as 60’s garage surf rock.

Places lived, And if they’ve had any influence on your song writing

We’ve only ever lived at home. It’s possible it could influence our writing but I think that stuff comes second after what you’re listening to!

Where have you toured internationally in the past?

We’ve toured around Europe and North America.

 Who’s a hot artist to look out for in your local Wollongong/Sydney scene?

Archy Punker is a rad Wollongong band you should definitely check out.

And what are the plans for the future? Ie: recording, touring abroad, joint projects?

Lots of touring and more records!
