Rocketsmiths blast through Sunny Coast to Byron Bay 10-13 June 2010

  Following on from QLD support slots with Texan rockers Spoon and the release of their pyromaniac-friendly film-clip for new single ‘Underground’, Brisbane’s most wayward rock quintet get the second leg of The Underground Tour underway next week.

The Underground Tour takes in a dozen dates from the Sunshine Coast to Melbourne.

It gives audiences the chance to share in the good times that always seem to find the rabble-rousing bunch who are masters of the sharp, short and colourful rock ditty.

Those who like their rock a tad off-kilter, their punk a little clever and their stage antics a lot crazy are encouraged to catch Rocketsmiths as they haphazardly make their way throughout the country, with support on the majority of dates from Melbourne indie-power-popsters Red Ink.

  Q: How did Felinedown’s involvement in uncharTED begin?

Brodie-Ann: Firstly, we uploaded some songs and that’s how it started – I think we made it into the Top 30 just after putting our songs up, and we were a really new band, so we were very excited. Also, when they were looking for bands for Live & Local, we were really keen to be involved and play among other really good local acts in front of a fresh audience – people who’ve never seen us play before.

Q: How did Felinedown meet and form?

B-A: I had a few songs written with my writing partner Kit [Sivyer, Felinedown’s ex-bassist], and before that I was in theatre and burlesque. We got Glen [Gattenhof], the guitarist,
