Uptown Punk

Just have a look at Luca Brasi’s promo shot on their website. You’ll see four handsome fellas with big, beaming smiles – but don’t let ’em fool you, for underneath those smiles and catalogue looks you’ll find punk rock at its finest. Bred in the badlands of Tasmania, Luca Brasi formed in 2009 and cut their teeth playing lounge room floors and dingy pubs. They have released two albums – 2011’s Extended Family and last year’s By a Thread. By a Thread was mixed by Matt Bayles, whose credits include Pearl Jam, Murder City Devils and Isis. The lads will be supporting You Me at Six on their Aussie tour, but have thrown in some solo headlining gigs because, well, why the punk not?! The Barwon, Geelong – May 1.
