Craig Bloxom’s Reggae SPYS @ Soundlounge
10 February, 2024 @ 7:00 pm
Aussie Rock with a Reggae Roll
Spy vs Spy bass legend and Senior Citizen Craig Bloxom is heading a new 3-piece lineup, playing all your favourites from the huge Spys catalogue – with a reggae twist.
SPY v SPY formed in Sydney in 1981. They became known for tackling political issues through their music, including racism, homelessness and contemporary drug culture. With platinum albums and gold top ten singles the Spys gave Australia anthems of a generation, defining and cementing themselves as Oz rocks working class heroes.
Reinventing the classic Spy v Spy hits in reggae format, ReggaeSPYS are the something old, something new vibe you never knew you needed. Backed up by two talented reggae lovers – TK Tarawa from the evergreen Kaimai Mountains of New Zealand on guitar, and Young Chrissy Lowe from Cessnock on drums.
Craig says the style might be new but they are keeping the fighting spirit of the Spys songs alive, tackling social injustice, racism and inequality with a new
reggae voice & presentation. “It’s a trip back in Spy vs Spy time with a new Roots Rock Reggae sound full of fun and good vibrations.”
Along with your favourite Spys songs ReggaeSPYS will also be playing a few other classics by well known Australian bands of the 80’s… think Cold Chisel, Aussie Crawl & INXS – all with a dose of Rastafari.
