The Drones

The Drones formed in Perth in 2000. In early 2001, Rui and Gareth headed east and for some reason settled in Sydney. There they lived in a Mitsubishi van on a dumped mattress with two mutts for three weeks before heading south to stay in the shittiest caravan park in all of grey Victoria. They survived low-rent Saturday night fevers of violence before finding a bass player and a drummer. The new Drones were formed.

They recorded their manic, poetic, debut album, Here Comes The Lies, soon afterwards. It was an exuberant, soulful, harshly beautiful and darkly comical affair. It also received huge praise all over the world and is now heralded as an Australian classic. In 2005, after innumerable headline shows, a slew of singles, compilation tracks and a successful tour of Europe and the US, the Drones are at the height of their powers.

The album, Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Will Float By, is the proof. This time around, the snarling beast called the Drones reveals it's gentle side but, when it chooses, it can roar louder and bite harder than ever before.
