“Howdy folks in Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Macedon Adelaide, Wollongong, Sydney, Narrabeen, Newcastle, Brisbane and Canberra who were hoping to see us old age teenagers live in concert in July; It ain’t gonna happen. We’re sincerely sorry, but this Covid shit is continuing to fuck with everything, and we need to postpone to August/October/November. Current ticket holders will be able to use those tickets. Refunds will be available if you can no longer attend.
The Meanies take desperate measures, finally!
Melbourne punk rock legends tour their new album a year late; with national ‘better late than never desperate measures tour’ .
Byron’s Dicklord open most shows!
Better late than never, and in the midst of their part in the national Spring Loaded tour with a few old buddies, Australia’s punk-rock heavyweights The Meanies announce their ‘better late than never desperate measures tour’. The tour is a belated celebration of their ‘new’ album Desperate Measures, which is out now on Cheersquad Records and Tapes.
Desperate Measures is a hard, fast and catchy onslaught of hard-hitting Meanies mayhem. It evokes the classic sound that made the band a household name in all the worst houses back in the ’90s, and which has influenced generation after generation of young punks ever since.
Joining The Meanies as they take their desperate measures are one such group of rowdies, the mighty DickLord, whose album ‘It’s Soooo Boring’ is out now on Valve.
