Tokyo’s premier Blues Punk trio, Mustang Jerx are returning to Australia this April/May to rip up Sydney, Orange and Melbourne for the release of their latest recording “Easter Monday” which was honed in a string of gigs up and down their homeland of Japan.
For close to 20 years Mustang Jerx have been slamming their unique brand of house rocking, foot stomping, rip roaring punk playing alongside Japanese legends Guitar Wolf, Electric Eel Shock, Jet Boys, King Brothers, The Neat Beats and Aussie icon Deniz Tek.
Mustang Jerx have toured extensively since 2000 around Japan, West Coast USA and Australia. With their last sojourn down under being 2015, this tour promises to bring their punk fuelled blues in a whirlwind assault taking with them noise merchants in the form of Tshitaki, Chickenstones, Simon Chainsaw, BUNT, Godfrey Turner Overdrive, Haylee, Dr Jebus and Crosson.
In 2009 the band released their first full length album titled ‘Mojo Light’, which was followed two years later by the simply titled ‘A’ and 2013’s ‘C That My Grave Is Kept Clean’.
For their first tour for Victoria they play alongside legendary locals Sordid Ordeal, Udder Ubductees, Seven Margaritas, Australian Kingswood Factory, Quaid, Psycho Moto and Devil’s Monkey. (info/source Turbo Nun Entertainment Group)
