Well before the hipster invasion, the nineties in Australia were not particularly known for their style, being more synonymous with the Shane Warne mullet and Alexander Downer in fishnet stockings. Luckily to rectify the problem, Dave Graney and the Coral Snakes appeared on the local scene, producing a smooth and textured music that was different from the avalanche of power-chords tearing through amplifiers at the time.

You can catch Alexa tomorrow night at the Petersham Bowling Club at 8pm, and next Tuesday night at Lazy Bones.
