Digger & The Pussycats (AUS) + De Høje Hæle (DK)
This year marks the 9th Birthday of Melbourne’s favourite two-piece garage-trash band Digger & The Pussycats. That’s right, they’ve almost hit the double digits. Geez…who would have thought that what started off as a bit of a joke by two mates looking for a reason to drink free beer and try to meet girls in their hometown, would take Sam and Andy to all corners of the globe across four continents.
The Digger & The Pussycats of 2012 is vastly different to that of 2003. Although their live set still features songs from their very first songwriting session, the boys themselves have changed. Whilst age has not wearied them, it has not been kind to them. Yes, they are not quite Young, Tight and Alright anymore. But they are not the slightest bit perturbed to be carrying a few grey hairs and a bit of extra weight, they still have a thirst for the stage, a love for each other and a desire to keep on writing and performing music the world over.
