Nick Barker & The Reptiles Single Launch @ Cherry Bar – Saturday 27 October
Why do bands split up?
For any number of reasons but the real question is, more importantly, why do bands reform?
Nick Barker & The Reptiles were great rock and roll bar band then – that’s undisputed. They were never gonna be was another Guns N’Roses! Two years ago (and almost 20 years to the day since we split) NICK BARKER AND THE REPTILES reformed for a charity gig at the infamous Reclink Community Cup in 2010 and realized with shock that they were still a great rock and roll band!
Unlike other bands, none of the original members of THE REPTILES ever stopped playing music. So, rather than a bunch of crusty old accountants and plumbers creaking away on gear that’s been under the house for an eon, you’ve got agroup of guys with better chops than before. Nick has always believed in gut instinct and The Reptiles gettig back together just felt right. There’s no real grand plan but it seems like a real resolution on what was a nutty, confusing, crazy portion of the bands youth…
SO – Nick Barker & The Reptiles have recorded a good old fashioned single called ‘Bend Not Break’ and are launching it at Melbourne’s Home of Rock and Roll, The Cherry Bar.
Cherry Bar – AC/DC Lane, Melbourne
Saturday 27 October
With special guest DAVE ”LARKO”LARKIN
