Biography

GASOLINE INC are an exciting new rock band from Fremantle, Western Australia. The band formed in late 2008 but the three core members, Gabriel O'Brien, Andro Mestrovic and Matt Sofoulis have been writing songs together since late 2007.

GASOLINE INC's unique and eclectic sound can be attributed to each individual member's background, personality and influence. The fsix piece band is fronted by Brazilian born singer/songwriter Gabriel O'Brien, who's on-stage persona and charisma is nothing short of electric. Combining his strong stage presence with a versatile vocal range and powerful delivery, Gabriel's energy will have a crowd buzzing within seconds. On lead guitar is the cool yet sometimes wild Andro Mestrovic. Andro has the unique abilty to make his guitar tell a story. A master of his skill and technically brilliant without being pretentious, Andro's guitar is a melodic extension of his soul. It oozes sensuality and feel. Matt Sofoulis is the rhythm guitarist and back-up vocalist of GASOLINE INC and is often credited with "holding the band together". Matt's guitar playing is a melting pot of funk, blues, rock n roll and heavy metal, and his impressive playing range is complimented by his equally impressive vocal range and power. Drummer, Leslie Stuart provides the underlying pulse that draws you into GASOLINE INC’s songs. He is an accomplished musician and his versatile drumming allows him to play to different genres outside conventional rock n’ roll. Les plays with a great deal of emotion and “feel”, sub-consciously capturing the audience and supplying the heartbeat for the entire crowd. Bassist Jason Millar, provides the groove that makes you move. Jason's experience as a live performer shows in his professional approach to the music, and his background as a music producer adds the fullness and up-lifting vibe you will hear on GASOLINE INC's tracks. Combined with his highly competent song writing skills and excellent grasp of music theory and production, Jason's motivated persona and professionalism gives GASOLINE INC the perfect balance needed to succeed. On Keyboards/Synthesizer is Mili Separovic, the recent addition to GASOLINE INC, Mili is a highly accomplished musician and his sound manipulation provides depth to GASOLINE INC songs as well as provide more scope for variety and creativity.

The combined influence of each band member makes GASOLINE INC's music appeal to rock fans and non-rock fans alike.

Add to this mix an energetic live performance filled with raw power and charisma and you have the makings of a band that have the potential to not only make it to the top, but stay there for a long time.

In September 2009 GASOLINE INC's track "Superstar" was utilized by commercial television stations Network 10 and ONE HD as part of the Australian Football League Grand Final week coverage. "Superstar" is currently been used by TNA (Total Non-stop Action) Wrestling) as its theme song.

GASOLINE INC have recently completed their debut, four track, self-titled EP at MILLAPEDE PROJECTS in East Fremantle. Their official CD launch, held at one of Perth's premier live venues, the Rosemount Hotel, was a sell-out show and many patrons spoke of it as "the best show they had seen in Perth for a long time."

This was followed in May by a packed house of 400 people for GASOLINE INC's Limited Edition Single Launch at the Fly By Night Club in Fremantle. The band performed 2 songs in their set with 20 person strong choir, "Voices in Sync" to a very appreciative audience.

The band is currently preparing to support INXS in July and release their debut music video and re-package their songs on a 5-6 track EP to be released in August....

Lyrics

Superstar

Written By: GASOLINE INC.

Stage is set
Anticipation hangs in the air
Take a breath
Suck the atmosphere in
And soon its time to shine

Close your eyes
Focus on your preparation
Visualize
The ultimate in satisfaction
The dream, the goal, the prize
You've been waiting your whole life
The moment has arrived
Let's set this place alight!

Superstar and entertainer
Electrify, Electrify
Hypnotizer, Mesmerizer, Amazer
You're a Superstar

In my mind
What i conceive I will achieve
And In good time
What i believe I will succeed in
I'm harder, I'm stronger
Nothing will stand in my way
Show stopper, jaw dropper
No-one can stop me

Superstar and entertainer
Electrify, Electrify
Hypnotizer, Mesmerizer, Amazer
You're a Superstar

Butterfly

Written By: GASOLINE INC.

A butterfly
A case of transformation
Embodiment of breaking free

I want to fly
Get lost in levitation
But something's got a hold of me

I can taste it
I can taste your dirty poison on my tongue
And it's eating me alive

I can feel it
I can feel your dirty poison in my bones
And it's sucking me dry

Like a bird with clipped wings
It ain't easy to fly
Within time we grow
Everyday we try
With a vision in my mind
We look to the sky
Spread your wings on the horizon
We can fly

This parasite feeds on my condition
The element that's killing me
But if I fly I'll fight off the infection
And save myself from this disease

I can taste it
I can taste your dirty poison on my tongue
And it's eating me alive

I can feel it
I can feel your dirty poison in my bones
And it's sucking me dry

Like a bird with clipped wings
It ain't easy to fly
Within time we grow
Everyday we try
With a vision in my mind
We look to the sky
Spread your wings on the horizon
We can fly
Spread your wings and fly

Nicotine and Love

Written By: GASOLINE INC.

The first step is the hardest
When the heart is saying stay
Modify the way I feel about
The things I do and say

You tell me not to
Instead of what to or even how to change to be a better man

You tell me not to
And now I've got to try to make you understand

So I say tonight
That you will leave me
But thoughts of letting you go makes me want you more

So stay tonight
And please relieve me
Whenever push comes to shove I fall for nicotine and love

I hear it like a loud call
It's my downfall having you
Flow in my veins
Like you're my cocaine
Oh yes I'm so addicted to you

Can't live without you
But show me how to
So I can change myself to be a better man

If I could shake you
I'd make a breakthrough
And now it's time I make a stand
So I say tonight
That you will leave me
But thoughts of letting you go makes me want you more

So stay tonight
And please relieve me
Whenever push comes to shove I fall for nicotine and love

The Quatrains

Written By: GASOLINE INC.

Let it out?
Keep it in?
Either way it begins to abuse me

Turning light into dark,
The signature mark of our ways

Playing games, calling names, laying blame
Point the finger accusingly

And nothing is gained when it’s taken in vain

The feelings we long for
This unattainable dream
It consumes like a fire,
The fumes of desire suffocate

Reaching out, all we've found is we're bound
To the sound of us screaming
And we're pushing the ones that we love even further away.

When we're together we blow with the power of a hurricane
Washing away the hearts that are chained to our souls
And they say its written in The Quatrains
We're gonna tear up the world and bring upon the end of days.
