MONEY BOYS (LIVE AT SMALL TIME)
A band formed as a means to break boredom, the debut single ‘Money Boy’ from Melbourne outfit Money Boys perfectly captures the pent-up energy of four punk diehards, busting to hit the studio together
Recorded at the first word of restrictions easing, the song bursts out the gates with a frenetic guitar intro, pushing effortlessly forward through punchy and melodic verse and chorus. Within three short weeks, Money Boys had written a whole EP and, in a single day, recorded it with Press Club’s Greg Rietwyk.
As kids the four members met in Melbourne’s underage punk scene, both playing in bands and going to shows together. Years later, they put together an Operation Ivy tribute band for a brief run of gigs and at one rehearsal, recorded a shitty demo of an original. With the boredom of lockdown in full swing, the song re-emerged and the hunger to write more became insatiable.
*Showcasing new and established artists, Live at Small Time prides itself on variety and the Australian music scene.
