The Rock-itt : November 2010
danceable.

The Patriarchs were forged by mutual interests in the northern beaches, the band first came together as a response to a need to perform live music as it was in the late 70’s and early 80’s when bands like Radio Birdman, Celebrate Rifles and the Laughing Clowns cut their teeth in the vibrant Sydney pub scene. The founding members, Serge "Roller door" Shultz, the chief engineer of the "Full Steam Ahead" style engine room, Bruce "berzerko" England, the shredding lead guitarist and Mike "Tangles" Williamson, the primary song writer and rhythm guitarist, originally formed the band in early 2009. The band experimented with a few singers until Elliott Cunnew; a young rude boy from the east end of London showed an interested and it was an immediate success. Followed quickly by Adam “Bassman” Walsh and John “slipper fingers” Singleton who has fronted such bands as “FRET” and “Spondonickle”, the band was complete and a new and innovative sound was formed. After writing their first GoGo-grunge inspired song, “Gingham Dress“, the band started to form their unique sound and remains in the latest songs “Girl Twister”, and “Scaly Pecker”.
