the Spat

“the SPAT” started out one fine Aireys Sunday afternoon after watching Los Locos Hombres play at the Pub.  We went back to Anna and Pauls’ place and with a borrowed drum kit and PA and resurrected old gear, we cobbled together a band room to jam, laugh and work out some of our favourite songs. Magic!!!  It helped not having any permanent neighbours. Originally the SPAT were Sharon Paul Anna and Tony, named as a piss take on ABBA, not that we play any ABBA songs yet.  Bricky soon joined as a cowbellist followed by Dave who we weaned off his ukulele and banjo suggesting he would shred on key-boards.  Playing an eclectic bunch of not so obscure hits, we create SPAT versions of some of your favourite songs.  We have played the Aireys music festival a couple of times supporting the likes of the Hoodoo Gurus, and the Rockwiz Orkestra, as well as Pressed Rat and Warthog at Hugh and Libbys’ pong break up.  We even did a publicly acclaimed “tour” down the great ocean road.  Come and rock out with the SPAT!
