The Drones


The Drones is one of those iconic Australian bands that also happen to have good music taste and were in charge of the last Edition of the All tomorrow´s Party music festival in Melbourne. They are originally from Perth and they are strongly influenced by the ‘garage rock’, even though they also fit in the ‘experimental rock’ genre. In my opinion the key is Gareth Lilliard –vocals, guitar- who is quite a front man and a great musician whose guitar style reminds me Joe Mascis’ (Dinosaur Jr) at times.

The show warmed up with their two new singles ‘I See Seaweed’ and ‘How to see through Fog’, and they ended up playing most tracks from their new album with a few old songs in between. The band seemed very relaxed for most of the show, Gareth taking charge of the show biz, with dirty riffs, soloing and a spasmodic dance that seemed driven by his –sleek- red Fender Jaguar, and Fiona –on the bass- making sure the beat was firm and strong.

I would have some complains about the sound engineer but it was a really good show and it was well worth my time. As in past concerts, Gareth and Fiona have demonstrated they are great artist and whatever name they decide to play under, it is really worth it dropping by.

Thanks for reading.
