Hoodoo Gurus

The Hoodoo Gurus – Back On the Scene

THEY’RE one of Australia’s most iconic rock and roll bands, and far north fans will have the chance to witness them in all their gritty glory when the Hoodoo Gurus play live at the Tanks Arts Centre Thursday the 8th of August.

Perhaps most famous for the re-worked track What’s My Scene (That’s My Team), used as the promotional theme track for the NRL for five years, the Hoodoo Gurus have been a firm favourite with Aussie fans for more than three decades.

“Whenever I’m asked to name a favourite of my songs I usually choose this one, not because I think it’s ‘the best’ but because it best captures everything I try to do when writing any song,” Dave Faulkner said of What’s My Scene.

The original line-up consisted of Perth musicians, Dave Faulkner, Roddy Radalj and James Baker who teamed up with Sydney-based musician Kimble Rendall to play their first rooftop gig in Sin City on New Year’s morning in 1981.

Over the years the band evolved to Brad Shepherd on guitar, bassist Clyde Bramley and Mark Kingsmill taking over drumming duties.

After countless world tours, millions of albums sold worldwide, and their household pub rock status, the band are back on the road, having played their first gig in 2019 at the Under the Southern Stars festival alongside a host of Aussie acts including You Am I, Sheppard, The Superjesus and British India.

“At the end of June we will be venturing out onto a pub stage for the first time in quite a while,” the band said in a statement on their website.
