Bitter Sweet Kicks

Bitter Sweet Kicks are a self-described "dirty rock n' roll" band from Melbourne, Australia. Influenced by proto-punk (The Stooges) and old school rock music (New York Dolls, AC/DC), their sound is a mix of raucous rock rhythms and rollin' guitar licks. Helmed by the gravelly rasp of Jack Davies (vocals), the rest of the band is anchored by Johnny Kicks (Bass Guitar), Chris Taranto (Guitar), Brendan Charlie (Guitar) and Joe Cunliffe (Drums). http://www.myspace.com/bittersweetkicks
