Oily Boys were in an abnormally focused mood when they supported Lumpy & The Dumpers at Marrickville Bowlo last weekend.
Watch them play “Blue Batman” here:
It was a different kind of set than what we’ve become accustomed to from the Sydney stumblebums – not shambolic, there was no equipment malfunctions, long delays, members going AWOL, etc.
This was just bloodthirstyweirdocore, one direct assault after another, blasted through the PA at full roar while the parquetry floor was stomped and schooie glasses shattered.
They kinda showed their true power and it was ugly and beautiful.
That said, we don’t mind if they revert to slightly shambolic next time out. All that crazy is part and parcel of what makes Oily Boys the most fascinating hardcore band in Australia right now.
