Scoop Images: The BANGS Are Coming!

USA's BANGS are visiting New Zealand & Australia later this month.

New Zealand acts, The Coolies, Fake Purr and The Hasselhoff Experiment will be playing with them, and experiencing the KILL ROCK STARS way right here in NZ! Very exciting stuff for all contemporary music enthusiasts out there.

The Coolies and Fake Purr are made up only of girls, suiting Bangs supports because the members of those two bands collect alot of music, amongst which is a helluva lot of KRS releases that include the coolest American indie artists around today. Bangs are also fronted by two strong women...

Hasselhoff Experiment are treating us with a rare live performance, Drummer Brendan Moran has been busy with his other band the Subliminals, but has been back in the practise room with fellow 'Hoffer Andrew Tolley, working on new songs, some of which they're pulling out for the Bangs show they play at The Masonic Tavern in Devonport on Feb 17.

A must see for Hasselhoff fans! Of course Hasselhoff are more than suitable to play with Bangs, Bangs also know how to throw a very loud and rockin' party and have also played hundreds of live shows.

keep up the cool scoop! xx –
