The socially conscience band that has been around since the early eighties. Started in Nelson Bay but really found their way once they moved to Sydney, living in the squats at Glebe. Fast forward 30 years, Michael Weiley has itchy fingers & wants to get back to what he does best, play guitar live.
He talks about seeing Cliff the original drummer while catching a train from Central Station & longs to re unite the magic they shared in the early days.

The message is sent out & Cliff replies a couple of years later & soon Cliff is back on the skins, providing the missing heartbeat to the band. Their last show together on stage was to a sold-out show & Michael’s last wishes for the band was for them to continue playing Spy v Spy music live. The Spy’s live show is like being hit by a truck, the songs Injustice, Hard Times, Soldiers, A.O, Credit Cards, One Of A Kind, Don’t Tear It Down, come at you hard & fast, music with a message, an experience in musical nirvana. The new line up is Cliff Grigg (original drummer), Dean Reynolds (lead vox), Andrew Davis (lead guitar) and Cam Hallmen (bass).

They have been rehearsing their asses off to get the songs down pat to pay homage to departed brother. Spy vs Spy are ready to go & this will be their first show back in their home town of Newcastle. A night not to be missed.

Urban Guerillas
Sydney’s Rock Rebels, Urban Guerillas, bring their socially charged Guerilla Radio show to Newcastle.

Guerilla Radio EP Review:
"Guerillas made a name for themselves on the back of an anti-imperialism song called "Here Come The Americans", and they’re still singing about similar things today. How’d they miss out on a Midnight Oil support? "Guerrilla Radio" is a seven-song EP that, in typical U.G. fashion, runs the stylistic gamut. The title track is killer folk rock, a condemnation of franchised, corporatised airwaves that would have done Joe Strummer proud. It’s as close to an anthem as you’ll hear these days. "No Walls" is "The Theme From Rawhide" with lyrics about Mexicans. Draw the dots and you’ll find Trump. "Iron and Steel" is a tough rocker with strangulated Peter Garrett vocals. Where did that Oils support spot go? There’s some some formidable guitar-work from main man Ken Stewart and the sound isn’t far removed from that of their good mates, Spy vs Spy." - The Barman i-94 Magazine
