Story goes that Psy Ants were a Brisbane group formed out of the ashes of a band called Science. They evolved from a two-piece consisting Mitchel Perkins and Aidan Hilcher, before expanding into a three-piece, with Glen Schenau of Per Purpose and Marl Karx on electric guitar. As with that other group Glen Schenau played in, Psy Ants are releasing a debut LP and then calling it a day. Seems like a pretty dignified way to die in the rock ‘n’ roll business. All is not lost though, because the members now play in groups like Per Purpose, Knee Chin and Cured Pink. Good on them.
Their debut LP is called Bit Tongue Prik and it’s out through Vacant Valley right now. Take a listen to the track below. We’ll review it soon.
They’re in the middle of their final tour at the moment. Most of Australia will have either missed them or seen them by now, but if you live in Adelaide or Brisbane, here are the details:
THURSDAY 8 – ADELAIDE
w/ Big Richard Insect + No Action + Shopgirl
SATURDAY 10 – BRISBANE
Sewers + Gerald Keaney and the Gerald Keaneys +
