‘Get It On’ with The Chevelles
“Its the Who meets the Ramones meets the Easybeats meets Beach Blanket Bingo! Its the criminals Australia wants to ship back to England and call it even! Its the High Priests of the Barbarella Girl God Love Cult! Its The Chevelles !”- Little Steven (Sopranos, Bruce Springsteen E Street Band) 2008
It was the summer of 1989-90. The twin peaks of revivalist 60’s psychedelia and post punk garage rock and roll had collided in Australia. Out of the West Australian surf crawled 4 long haired boys determined to make their own special guitar noise….. The Chevelles were born. 20 years later The Chevelles have played over 1000 live shows, released over 20 recordings and extensively toured Australia and the US, Brazil and Europe over a dozen times in their career….playing in small sweaty rooms, massive outdoor stadium concerts and wild beach festivals . They have earnt their underground reputation as “Australian Cult Garage Power Pop Legends”. In 2010 they kickstart their 20th Year Anniversary World Tour in the US with the release of their new album “Accelerator” and once again drive down the highway on another Rock and Roll adventure !
“The guitars are some of the biggest in the business, towering power chords straight from the loins of Pete Townsend almost to big and always melodic in an immaculate way” Houston Press, USA
