The Detonators (VIC)

Known as Australia's "High Priests of roots Rock 'n' Roll" this high octane rubber burnin' quartet always deliver the goods like a methanol fueled supercharged freight train.

Digging deep into their extensive set list of award winning original songs sees influences as wide ranging as Little Walter to Johnny Cash to the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

With the four-eyed fury Rockbottom James on vocals and electric harmonica madness sometimes prevailing with his wise cracking, and madman-like stage movements.

On vintage hollowbody guitar and glowing valve amp is Paulie the Kid, backed up by Doghouse Dave on Slapping Double Bass and George 'Caveman' Brugmans on the sticks and skins.

CDs include:
Live at the East (2008)

Top Night Out (2007)
Bombshell (2003)

The Adventures of Rockbottom James and the Detonators (2000)

Everybody Stay Calm (1999)

Blow it Up (1997)
