If you consider yourself a music fan and you've not heard the name Hard-ons then you must have lived in a cave for the last 28 years! Certainly the Hard-ons are, or should be in this scribes humble but hopefully pertinent opinion, a house-hold name in every country!!!!!
Consider the facts. 17 consecutive number 1s on the independent charts in Australia. TV appearances on major shows in Japan, England, Germany, Finland, Spain, France and Greece! A top 10 hit in Spain, a top 5 hit in Greece! The only Australian band still based in Australia to hit the top 5 in the NME charts (in 1989, with LP "Love is a Battlefield of Wounded Hearts") and at the time, the only Australian artist besides Nick Cave or the Go-Betweens to hold that position!
Fans include and included Henry Rollins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jello Biafra, UK Subs, Captain Sensible, members of Radio Birdman and the Saints, Sky Saxon, Brody Dalle, Mike Davis from MC5 (who wrote fan mail!), DJ Speedranch, C.J. and Joey from the Ramones, members of Sepultura and a countless number of big profile metal and punk bands, and even the mayor of Burgos, Spain who in 1991 gave the boys the key to the city!
The Hard-ons music can be described as a series of short exciting bursts of undiluted rock and roll. Elements of metal, punk, bubblegum pop and powerpop blast the listeners’ sensibilities with both beauty and brutality. It is all over under three minutes and then they move on!
The Hard-ons’ live set is a humorous and unpredictable affair of the highest order: a truly action packed bare-chested glory that is bound to leave footprints on one’s skull. Explosion after explosion of feedback, distortion AND pure melody exit via frightening velocity and taste! A legendary must-see show!
