When it comes to naming Aussie Rock Legends the name Rose Tattoo is high up on the list. Formed almost 35 years ago the band is still exalted globally as one of the purist, loudest, dirtiest, loveable rock bands to ever grace the stage, be it in a sweaty Aussie pub or at an outdoor European stadium. Areas of speciality include Oz Rock Artists. The band was formed in 1976 by Pete Wells and Angry Anderson. Rose Tattoo made an impact through their uncompromising, “take no prisoners” attitude to their music and their shows. They are credited as being the inspiration for Guns and Roses and can claim true fans in Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Motley Crue, Aerosmith, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and German rock heroes Boez Onkelz to name just a few who have publicly spoken kindly of the Tatts.

mental-as-anything Image

A popular urban myth concerns a group of art students who passed themselves off as a band in order to con the local publican into giving them a gig in exchange for free beer. The deception worked better than intended, and the group came to be known as Mental as Anything. Nearly three decades later, they are still irritating the public with their highly listenable, idiosyncratic brand of garage pop. Areas of speciality include Oz Rock Artists. A self-explanatory single to reflect their success, The Nips Are Getting Bigger, rose through the charts as did their fundamental understanding of the old adage that ‘for every action there is a reaction’. Ahead lay a very lengthy pub crawl which only the accomplished could survive.
