PLANB and DR DESOTO
The Rock and Soul sounds of PlanB’s recent recordings hark back to the days when bands cut their teeth on live shows for real people. This is not surprising considering PlanB’s heritage; the group formed in the mid eighties in Adelaide South Australia, where it shared the stage with the huge bands of the day including The Eurogliders, Goanna, Pseudo Echo, Mondo Rock, The Models, John Paul Young and The Allniters. Performing internationally is subtly changing this grass roots Australian band. While still full of bold brass and richly textured lyrical content the material recorded on tour reflects the cultural impact of the Vietnam and Cambodian experience on the band, as well as the aggregation of years of life and industry experience.
A mainstay of the original music circuit in South Australia since 2012, Dr DeSoto has a reputation for gritty roots-pop, and draws on the experience of ex members of ‘The Audreys’ (ARIA Award winners), ‘Gone To Earth’, ‘Highway 31’ and more. It’s a no-fuss four piece outfit that’s equally at ease on Festival stages or in front bars. The Go-Betweens, Elvis Costello, the Finn Brothers – Doctor DeSoto’s hooky songs tap into this vein of suburban storytelling from where the dead end streets and the dust-bowls meet.
This will be a special afternoon of music as these two Adelaide bands appear on the same bill for the first time.
