Biography

Formed in 1997 and among Perth's longest established original bands, Loads have played with many of Australia's finest acts, including Even, The Stems, The Panics, Little Birdy and The Sleepy Jackson.

After a year-long break, Tony, Jason and Scott were joined by Paul (ex-sQuire) and Loads returned to the live music scene mid-2006. With a new line-up has come new material and although still strongly influenced by British music of all genres, the sounds of Loads are becoming increasing influenced by 60's Mod and scooter culture despite being able to rock it up.

Since returning to the scene, Loads have entertained a number of packed houses at the Velvet Lounge with guest mod/Brit-pop DJs, performed to the Barmy Army at a traditionally cover-band venue and again supported The Stems, both at the Leopold Hotel and the more recently sold out event at Mojos (Freo.)

2007 has seen pre-recording sessions; the intention being to release new Loads material later this year.

Influences:

The Small Faces
The Rolling Stones
The Stone Roses
The Who
Paul Weller

But the list is endless really...

Lyrics

Summer Song - Demo

Written By: Loads

Welcome to the madness,
Say hello to the world that I'm living in,
You say you can't stand this,
That's just the way it is,
That's just the way it is,
Think yourself strong when you carry it on like this,
Think your so strong when you carry it on and...

These days they can make you,
These days they can break you,
These days they can make you,
These days,
These days, These days...

When I know where I want to be,
Come and follow me
And I'll show you all,
that everythings going to be right.

You see my life frantic,
I do what I want and I don't give a damn about...
A strange bird you can't stand this,
But that's just the way it is,
That's just the way it is,

Think yourself strong when you carry it on like this,
Think your so strong when you carry it on and...

These days they can make you,
These days they can break you,
These days they can make you,
These days,
These days, These days...

When I know where I want to be,
Come follow me
And I'll show you all,
that everythings going to be right.

And you know,
When I go,
That you'll come a following me,
And you'll see,
That I am,
Exactly who I want to be!
