The Angels of Gung Ho are a psychedelic, rhythm and blues explosion hailing from adelaide. Take Melodic rock, with fuzzy guitars, a hammond organ, a saxaphone, trumpet and tin whiste (all of which ripping out solos) add in 3 part harmonies and some psychedelic break downs and thats what you get.

Biography

Dusty Lee formed the band in mid 2011 for a gig at the promethean show casing his original material with a full band of his favorite musicians to play with around town, Consisting of 2 high school mates, Jack Cunningham (Cunno) & Tom Morris, from Dusty's previous band The Swoop - Danny Leo and bass player of the grace emily billy bobs BBQ jam house band Ben Morris. For this gig also part of the band was Kacey Stephensen Dusty's younger brother, playing trumpet, tin whistle and percussion. The gig was a huge success, there was 120 heads through the door, and all were in ore of the performance they were seeing. It was filmed and recorded. This was a very diverse set, songs written in soft acoustic style going into heavy psychedelic tunes. But the main sound always coming back to gritty bluesy rock.
The band decided to continue after doing a second show at the ed castle with Ride into the sun and the Holy Smokes. Again a packed room, great response. For this show they added drummer Travis Dragani as Danny Leo is a busy man!

Its only early days for this new band, but they already have a tight sound and could rock any stage in the country with confidence and more then enough ability.
Your ears might be ringing, but they will be happy ears.
