Super rock band keeping it old school like it should be. Fast paced with all the right notes in all the right places combined with some super riffs and some great melodic vocals these guys really are a pleasure to listen to. Vocally fantastic, Lyrically superb and the music just rocks.
‘FIVE STAR CROOKS – a raw rock band, in the Aussie tradition of AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, and Jet. Coming from the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, Five Star Crooks released their debut album, ‘Hearts and Hands’, via the independent label ‘Hel Bel Records’ on the 30th April, 2014. The renowned sound engineer Bill Irvin has produced a dynamic album, from the literal stomp of ‘Lady Teacher’ and ‘No Risk, No Reward’, to the emotive and ambient tracks, ‘Heart’ and ‘Going Away’, with endless stirring rock in-between. Vocalist Pete Burgess soulful, husky voice leads the Rich Anderson guitar attack, driving bass of Nik Brajkovic and big beats of Travis Venn, with 70’s rock influence shining through in their music’. Our full album can be heard at our Soundcloud page.
