Spy vs Spy 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. e new line up is Cliff Grigg, (original drummer), Dean Reynolds (lead vox), Andrew Davis (lead guitar), Cam Hallmen (bass). They have been rehearsing their asses off to get the songs down pat to pay homage to departed brother. Spy v Spy are ready to rock.

Urban Guerillas
Originally from Adelaide the Urban Guerillas set up base in Sydney in the early eighties. They have repeatedly toured regional and outback Australia clocking up over 1500 gigs. Their extensive repertoire of songs are typically inspired by, the dreams, frustrations and passions of working Australians. Music for the for the heart, the soul and the feet...

The following are a selection of quotes from the music media and daily papers...

"The Urban Guerillas perform with a forceful blend of aggression and calculation which rarely allows the energy level to sag. A pop band with a punk spirit." - RAM Magazine

"Stadium-ready hard rock from Australia. Chunka-chunka guitars, plodding butt-swagger tempos, and wave-your-hands-in-the-air choruses." - Listen.com

"The Urban Guerillas' music, original yet never predictable travels down many roads from rock to pop to reggae yet always remaining in the one vein. If I had to label them musically and lyrically (which is not easy) I would have to put them somewhere between the Spy’s and the Oils, a parallel and a compliment in one." - On the Street

"The Urban Guerillas have established themselves as an intelligent and thoughtfully provocative unit. The strong melodic power of their music, combined with their urgent lyrics makes them a potent music force." - The Beat, Melbourne

Urban Guerillas dazzle the listener with their urgency and sentiment. They are actually one of Australia's most powerful pop bands with something to say." - Rip it Up, Adelaide

"They play competently and harmonise well in a singsy songsy way reminiscent of Midnight Oil segued with Painters and Dockers." - Rolling Stone

"Urban Guerillas play a relentless brand of original rock music." - Who’s who of Australian rock

"Urban Guerilla’s are a bunch of mad bastards that hark back to that period of Oz Rock epitomised by the Angels and Midnight Oil." - Beat Magazine

"The punk tradition continues in bands like the Celibate Rifles, the New Christs and the Urban Guerillas." - Sydney Morning Herald

"Guerilla Radio 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." - The Barman i-94 Bar

The Urban Guerillas are Ken Stewart (guitar/vocals), Phil Paviour (bass/vocals) and Mick Elsley (drums/vocals).
