The Galvatrons

Flicking through the channels this week I was galvanised by the video of The Galvatrons. This four piece is from my hometown of Melbourne and I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about them that jars though, it’s almost as though they are laughing through all that hair.

Some hype from the Warner website:

Galvatrons are putting fun back into rock with their debut EP, When We Were Kids, which features the popular track of the same name.

When We Were Kids was recorded in Melbourne by Lindsay Gravina (The Living End, Shihad) and mixed in Hollywood by the legendary Tim Palmer (David Bowie, Pearl Jam, U2, The Cure).

The melody driven musicians Johnny Galvatron (lead singer), Manny Bourakis (drums), Pete and Pete (edifying isn’t it?) are set to take on the world with their up and coming debut album – due early in the new year. Head to MySpace for a few tracks and over to YouTube for another video.

Worth a listen.
