After an incredible start of the year, Australian powerhouse trio, Tequila Mockingbyrd, continues to bring their energy to the UK and European stages with “Good Time” tour, in support of Aussie rockers Massive.

Their debut album “Fight And Flight” was released in March via Off Yer Rocka Records, and contains 13 songs covering topics such as having a good time, shaking what you’ve got to get where you want to go, and taking chances to make things happen.  With the first single, “I Smell Rock n Roll”, finding its way on to the playlist at Planet Rock Radio, and a further single, “Never Go Home” being released ahead of the album.  This exclusive release will also contain 4 live tracks, recorded at the “Flocking Off, A farewell to Oz” show in Melbourne.

The band just went through a change in line up now featuring Louise Baker (vocals, guitar) Jacinta Jaye (bass) and Joise O’ Toole (drums).

About the forthcoming tour Josie says: “It’s great to be back in the UK and Europe for the summer festival season! We’re very excited to be hitting the road again, spreading our wings to the UK, Spain, Germany and Belgium for our biggest run of shows to date! We’ve got a couple of fresh faces on board and some fresh tunes to boot. Let the good times roll!”

Tequila Mockingbyrd Bio:

No lemon. No salt. No chaser. Melbourne’s Tequila Mockingbyrd are a shot of straight up rock n roll packing a high energy punch that will hit you from the first explosion of sound until long into the after-party. Comprised of Louisa Baker (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Jacinta Jaye (Bass) and Josie O’Toole (Drums) the band are rapidly becoming known for their explosive live shows and punky rock sound. With an arsenal of catchy riffs and memorable choruses, Tequila Mockingbyrd pump out party anthems like Good Time and their disco-punk ode to Melbourne’s iconic Esplanade Hotel, Never Go Home, then rip into bottom-heavy stomping tracks such as I Smell Rock n Roll and Everyone Down.



About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
