A trio from London on one side and a combo for Perth on the other. What the connection is one can only guess.
The tough troubles side almost starts outs like the Electric Prunes before focusing a thick heavy riff. Smiling raggedly all the time

Tough Troubles are Murray and Milos. They've been living in London for
the last 6 and 4 years respectively. They live in Holloway, north
London, which isn't very near any large body of water, apart from the
West and East Reservoirs (near Manor House). They come from a city
called Perth, which is in Western Australia, on the coast of the
Indian Ocean. Murray was born in a medium sized country town on the
coast of the Southern Ocean, called Albany. Milos was born in
Montenegro, on the Adriatic coast; therefore an immigrant (not a stage
name). Tough Troubles try to recreate the feeling of living near the
sea by bathing in reverb, and even though it's very hard to feel
seaside in Holloway - they can get tans in one of the many nearby
tanning salons. They don't need to, however, as their sonic journeying
takes them, like Icarus, close enough to the Sun to get a tan.

They've previously performed in Eagle Boys, Soviet Valves, PC Thug and
so on. Direct influences on the sound of Tough Troubles are AC/DC, The
Saints, Hawkwind, Wire, Swell Maps, Saxon, Acid Mothers Temple and
