It was an era of live music, and they were the band that put the rock into pub gigs all over Australia.

The sound of a generation.

“The pubs inspired and helped create all the great Aussie bands like INXS, The Angels, AC/DC, Cold Chisel, Men At Work and on and on. We called it Pub Rock way after the fact.”

Mark Gable and his mates started in the 70s on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. “We had no idea what we were doing or where it would end up taking us – they didn’t call it Pub Rock in those days, but we were there in the beginning and we’re still here now!”

Choirboys are renowned for a great live show, it’s not just the music it’s the atmosphere they bring to the stage. The grafting, sweating, pulverizing, pounding, screaming - doing what they do best.  Entertaining an audience by spilling their hearts and souls onto the stage.  You just don’t get much more Rock ‘n Roll than that.

For 7 years Choirboys have been recording every live show, and this collection of their classic original songs is 100% Choirboys, 100% Pub Rock:  The sound and the band that Australia has come to know and love has been captured from a series of shows in venues right around the country. No auto-tune, studio adjustment; no hiding the rawness, just real live music, nothing held back.

Pub Rock 2017 will take you from the rebellious theme of Bullshit, the slow sexy groove of Fireworks and the anthem of summer Boys Will be Boy through to the ultimate denial of aging We’re Never Gonna Die and topped off with that quintessential spirit of Australia in Run To Paradise.  . 

This is an album that celebrates more than the soul of Pub Rock in Australia. It’s nostalgia from a bygone era, one that has become the biggest influence on contemporary music in Australia. The Choirboys are at the forefront and are testament to the quality and staying power of something that is far bigger than all of us.  

Pub Rock 2017 has already changed your world.   The  album is due for release in August of 2017, with a tour commencing in late October.  Pre order your copy
