Urban Guerillas

Urban Guerillas are an independent rebel rock outfit based in Sydney, Australia. Formed by singer/songwriter/guitarist Ken Stewart, the Urban Guerillas sprang out of the pub, punk scene in Adelaide, South Australia, in the eighties. Through various lineups the band has experimented and grown in prowess and stature and always fronts up as an energetic and formidable live performance unit. Playing their own brand of relentless rockin' power pop they have supported Mental As Anything, Spy Vs Spy, Baby Animals, Mark Seymour, the Radiators, the Screaming Jets and the New Christs, and toured Melbourne with the Saints.  The Urban Guerillas have a strong sense of social engagement with their songs often providing a focus at rallies and on the coal face of change. They have played at Sydney Airport to 6,000 workers stranded when Ansett Airlines collapsed, Peace Rallies in Sydney and Brisbane, No Racism, No War Rally to 50,000 people in Sydney's Domain, Corroboree Sovereignty for indigenous rights in Canberra, Woomera 2002 Festival of Freedoms, May Day celebrations of worker's rights, National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Celebration and the Hiroshima Day Rally. They have also played for Greenpeace, the Australian Conservation Foundation and the Wilderness Society including Rock for Rights at the SCG with the Hoodoo Gurus, Missy Higgins, Richard Clapton and Youthgroup. With the ever increasing  gap between government policy and the will of the people, the Urban Guerillas often find themselves performing on the front line raging against nuclear war, environmental neglect and maintaining jobs for local workers on the ports and coastal shipping. The band has just released a new EP “Guerilla Radio" with songs reflecting the everyman's view that has gone missing from the mainstream media.

 

The Urban Guerillas are Ken Stewart guitar / vocals, Phil Paviour bass / vocals and Mick Elsley drums / vocals.
