Umm Yeah, It's Hurricanes

The last great band to come out of Mount Gambier was '80s literate rockers Moodists (well, band founders Dave Graney and Clare Moore at least). From that SA town we now welcome Ross De Chene Hurricanes, a two-piece garage outfit, one-part surf punk/one-part Jonathan Richman rock'n'roll. The Hurricanes have previously cited fellow South Australians, and heritage listed '60s rockers, Masters Apprentices as an influence (alongside The Saints and Super Wild Horses), and it was heard in the raw sonics they achieved Saturday night, supporting Dirt Farmer at the Order. In light of the success by bands Bass Drum Of Death, DZ Deathrays and Jeff The Brotherhood, could 2011 be the year of the power garage duo?
