04/10/2019 - Punk-A-Palooza IV.
The band formed in Nov 2018 and started gigging in Feb 2019. In five months they have played nearly 20 gigs; mainly in the Brighton/Worthing/West Sussex area, although they have been as far afield as Basingstoke and Swansea. They released their first single Mary Jane, 1st Apr, from the EP PhD, which was released 1st May. Not happy with the production of the EP the band now rehearse at Stanbridge Farm Studios (http://www.stanbridge-studios.co.uk/) where they recorded their debut album, Renegade Grenade, late July/early Aug; following in the footsteps of bands such as The Sex Pistols and The Cure; it’s also where their second single Ed Sheeran, released 1st Jul, was recorded. “Doctor Gonzo are different because we’re older, wiser, (sort of,) louder, faster and funnier than most bands out there. We love our songs, our fans and we love playing punk rock. It’s exciting to be playing the music we love for a growing audience, being able to share what we love with fans and travel, meeting awesome new bands and people is one of the best things about being in a band with your best mates. We all love our craft, and we strive to be better as musicians and a band every day. As long as there’s a gig, a rehearsal to go to or some songs to record, we’re happy boys.”
