The SMASH! was formed by 50 something punk rockers who were bored of playing the wrong music with the wrong people for the wrong reasons. Playing standard rock covers at weddings and birthdays,- you know the sort of thing: Johnny B Good, Sweet Home Alabama.... ZZZzzz . It may pay a bit of dough but don't make yer feel it.
The SMASH! are now playing the stuff that made them fall in love with music the first time round. Punk and New Wave and some pub rock from the early days, playing with the punk attitude they had back in the day.
