Con Patogiannis – guitar
Peter Ivosevic (The Need) – drums

This Sydney export has now firmly based himself in Melbourne.
to the new sound, it’s rocking hard as Vanderby’s filthy, angry organ
playing, unique beat poet style vocals are something to be heard. His
on stage antics, throwing around the 200 kilo Hammond when he gets
carried away is definitely something to be seen. Check em out!"
