Mossy Fog + Cuatro Tortillas
Mossy Fog | 7.30pm
Led by the throaty husk of vocalist Turin Robinson, Mossy Fogg has evolved to become a gritty, creative 4-piece, delivering battered overtures underscored by Dom Barrett’s weaving, stabbing guitar and the hell-broke-loose rumble of Callum Morrison’s bass and Andy Pearson’s drumset. Since 2014 they have built an impressive tower of song and performance, beguiling audiences and bewitching reviewers with a canon that pays heed to influences such as Tom Waits, Timber Timbre, and Nick Cave. With a sound that combines elements of swampy guitar tones, noise full beauty and rough charm, Mossy Fogg are set to compel and propel throughout 2023.
Cuatro Tortillas | 8.45pm
Cuatro Tortillas originated as a ZZ Top tribute in Germany in the early 90s. Over the next decade the band played numerous festivals and club shows and toured the UK twice Around 2010 singer/ bass player Mario Schmack reactivated the band in Perth with the addition of Mark Lovich on vocals/guitar and Stuart Robertson on drums.
Recently the band has seen a line-up change with Tony Shergold on vocals/guitar and Boris Kosse on drums. The band has performed regularly at the Perth Blues Club and other venues.The Totillas’ repertoire is drawn mostly from the early blues-rock sound that made that little ol’ band from Texas so special.
While they pay homage to the classic versions of the songs they are known for interpreting the music their own way with masterful improvisation, just like ZZ Top themselves.
