The Kombi Killers are an old school punk rock band based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. They have been on my radar for a couple of years now due to playing regular shows with other bands I like but they have been belting out old school inspired punk rock for over a decade already and like most bands they’ve had a few changes in that time. The Kombi Killers have released two EP’s prior to their signing with Riot Records, these EP’s were We Are Robot and Raise Your Flag. Riot Records has some great bands on the roster, you can check out a list here. You can find some of the bands older stuff on youtube and you can find the band on the Triple J Unearthed platform here.
The first Riot Records era single from the Kombi Killers was Don’t Start back on the 22nd of February this year. The official film clip is pretty good, the song itself is a typical high energy punk song with all the trimmings and some catchy shout along vocal hooks. Don’t Start has those old school anarcho-punk vibes, both musically and lyrically, it also has that simplicity that punk songs often have with easy to learn and fun to play guitar parts. The follow up single ScuMo is a little different but still the same style musically and lyrically it takes aim at the current prime minister of Australia, the relatable angst is appealing.
