A couple of years ago, while sitting in a beer garden during a Melbourne punk show, Matt ‘Penky’ Penkethman, Nathan Williams, and Isaac Ishadi shared their mutual love of the Coloured Balls, the legendary Aussie rock band known for their raw and ragged bluesy energy.
Jokes about forming a power trio in tribute to the Coloured Balls and Aussie rock heroes the Aztecs and Chain, quickly escalated into drunken band promo shots. A band was born in a beer garden.
Though members have spent time in punk and hardcore bands such as Kromosom, Dribble, and Soma Coma, Power is pure raw rock that draws parallels with the first Stooges album, the boogie of the Coloured Balls and the Aztecs 1970 album The Hoax is Over. It's rough, loud and very Aussie.
