In 2020 Sunnyboys will celebrate 40 years since their inception with a Twilight at Taronga performance!
Though a mere 12 years of actual existence, the Sunnyboys are celebrating their 40th anniversary via a new release ‘Sunnyboys 40’. The release brings together the first ever re-release of the band’s much loved 1980 eponymous debut 7” – featuring the original version of the all-time classic ‘Alone With You’ – alongside four new recordings culled from the archives of chief songwriter Jeremy Oxley.
“You can’t keep a good band down. These new and revitalised songs take it back to the reason behind the band in the first instance. The 40 years in between is nicely depicted in the change in voice while the energy and craftsmanship is still there in the sound, albeit a little fuller and rounder. I guess, it’s just like us too really… “ – Jeremy Oxley
And what better way to celebrate both the new release and the milestone anniversary than by doing what Sunnyboys do best – play live!
Opening for Sunnyboys are Rocket Science with their trashy-psychedelic-garage-punk with new wave, no-wave art-punk enthusiasm.
Formed in mid-1998, Rocket Sciencehave been described as one of the greatest bands to see live by Rolling Stone Magazine. They have received accolades and excitement from all over the world, touring extensively throughout the noughties and also releasing albums in the UK, Europe, US and Japan.
After a 6-year hiatus Rocket Science returned to live gigging to perform at the Mick Blood (Lime Spiders) benefit in 2014, and with renewed vim and vigour have been slaying audiences all over the country since.
Rocket Science recently released their fifth album ‘Snake’.
