About the event
Spy v Spy is unquestionably one of Australia's most socially conscious rock bands. They started out as the voice of Sydney's homeless squatters in the early eighties, but their songs spoke for everyone who felt under the thumb of the system. They told true stories of the common struggle that polite Australia didn't necessarily want to hear. With platinum albums and gold top ten singles, the SPYS gave Australia anthems that defined a generation and cemented themselves as Oz rocks working class hero’s .With the tragic passing of Michael Weiley one of Australia's unsung heroes of guitar, Cliff Grigg original drummer and songwriter was charged with the task to bring the Spy’s back to their early glory. Michael had handpicked some local musicians and embraced them as the new Spy’s to carry the music forward into the future. Four members one goal; to redeem the Spy’s legacy and play the music with passion and pride. Driven by Cliff Grigg, the Spy's first new album in over 25 years came together. The aptly named, New Reasons, is filled with great Australian rock The current line up is filled with some stellar talent. The Spy’s are back and here to stay.
