Punk rock can be referred to as a wave or more like a revolution the past years. Punk has proved to people that it has now been ingrained to people, what people at some point thought was impossible about punk rock is now possible. Punk has now been loaded into the cultural lexicon the rock slang has become a normal thing. Punk from way back has been deemed a rebellious run for old kids at some point deemed hazardous to children, maybe people are so fearful of punk music simply because of how punk rock fans dress to it.
Punk music actually does have a heavy following and it holds a big meaning to fans giving a lot of people something to believe in and express themselves. Babeez back in 1977 was the first ever punk music recorded in Melbourne Australia. If one was staying in Melbourne back in the 70s Babeez would be the music playing from the boy next door at high volumes.
Going back into time one can’t help appreciate the Australian glory days of fast and hard music, beer soaked and sweaty music and not since then has there been a band that has risen so high like the Australian Kingswood Factory.
AKF has been inexistence right from the 1970’s, Lindsey being the last founding member, Chris known also as Keogh has also been a long serving member of the famous legendary band. AKF generally operate as a trio that have shows along the East Coast of Melbourne having mind boggling shows in club circuits and Melbourne pubs. AKF are a purely crowd fed kind of band as much as the booze helps, they clearly get crowds worked up giving them an experience of a lifetime as they clearly enjoy themselves too.
Australian Kingswood Factory have clearly followed in the footstep of the likes of the Angels, Rose Tatoo and Cold Chissel best punk bands that sold out shows night after night leaving a mark in history. The talented guitarist Lindsey Bush say for them playing live shows is the ultimate high for them regardless of where they are since that is what they love doing. They boast of electrifying the crowds with their punk music, not leaving any barroom dry, no ear drum bleeding out as they too enjoy the reaction from the crowds.
According to Bush the guitarist he says the band is a dream come true as they operate as touring musicians with every gig getting more explosive and dirty.
