A gig for people who like their music with a little edge. Here are some things you may not know about the GOD: The Goons of Doom are four childhood buddies from Sydney’s northern beaches who met on the very first day of school: Ozzy Wrong, Killerwhale, Vaughan Deadly and The Crimson Baquero, also known as Cowboy. All four enjoyed lengthy suspensions and ruthless canings for various indiscretions at school. And did you also know – the Goons of Doom have been ripping the fuck out of live shows for 10 long years.
They’ve toured the world a dozen times and played at festivals such as Big Day Out, Falls and SXSW and they’ve also toured with, opened for or been on the same bill as a diverse range of acts including The Presets, Wolfmother, Hole, The Beautiful Girls, The Rakes, Pennywise, The Ground Components, Angus & Julia Stone, The Gingers, John Dillinger Escape Plan, Damien Marley & Nas, Mariachi El Bronx, and a whole bunch of other fucks too! Oh, and another thing: The Goons of Doom’s tattoos suck.
Cowboy has a tattoo of rain but no clouds. Ozzy Wrong has a tattoo of stitches and dinosaur bones. Vaughan Dead has a tattoo that says ‘I went to the tattoo shop and all I got was this lousy tattoo’. Killerwhale has a tattoo of his dog’s name ‘Fizzy’ on the roof of his mouth. Do something you won’t regret and catch them at the Hotel Great Northern this NYE. $20 plus b/f.
The Goons of Doom are joined by Ocean Alley, The Badlands and DJ Chris Bradley at the Hotel Great Northern this New Years.
