TRIPLEZED ZEDBLOG- Something like a speeding stagecoach, these local lads play country rock with banjo and a whole lot of verve. They claim to be influenced by The Boss and if you listen you can definitely hear that too. Actually, for a country band there is a degree of interesting production wizardry which really adds something, rather than hiding the raw quality of the music. Their rough-throated singing will fool you into thinking they’re pining for the old west, but if you listen closely the lyrics are all about the equally rough and ready life lived in Brisbane, giving Bang Bang Boss Kelly a personal if paradoxical immediacy. A strong debut.
