Huxton Creepers, a band that anyone with a passing familiarity with the Australian live music scene in the 80s would know, captured a generation of fans with their delicate blend of power pop and good old rock and roll.They are now set to re-release their re-mastered classic album 12 Days to Paris, a double CD featuring bonus b-sides, live tracks, demos and other Huxton Creepers rarities.

They have played on the odd occasion since they went their separate ways at the end of the 80s and this 12 Days to Paris Re-release Tour will most likely be the last time the band will perform as a group. The Creepers will appear alongside Ups & Downs at Byron Bay Brewery in Byron on Saturday.
