Detroit Rock Ciggies by the Bennies

Who:

Claiming parties, pingaz and ska music as influences, the four piece Melbourne band can morph their genre-changing sound like a John Carpenter monster.  Though most hear punk rock, the Bennies use reggae, ska and the hellish riffs of Dead Kennedys to create fun, fast punk.


What:

Much like Kiss’ Detroit Rock City, the Bennies begin their single Detroit Rock Ciggies with a true stadium rock riff, the deep driving bass line thumping in the background.  The track soon moves from rock to ska as the Jamaican-fused riffs come to the forefront.  Much like all their tracks, the Bennies entertain with memorable lyrics but it’s the energetic riffs and vocals that keep me engaged.  I can only imagine the circle pits and stage dives when Detroit Rock Ciggies is played live.


Sounds like:

A stadium rock show with Kiss and NOFX, pyrotechnics included.


Watch out for:

The Bennies start their Australian tour next week before jetting off to Europe.  Catch them in your city and keep a look out for their next album Wisdom Machine out on the 25th of March.
