Raised in rural Australia on their uncle's collection of classic rock albums, brothers Joel and Ryan O'Keefe's beer-swilling barrage of head banging rock'n'roll is thrashing its way into the hearts of metal fans the world over. A gang of down-to-earth, fair dinkim Aussie blokes with a genuine love of what they do, their self-released debut EP Ready To Rock (2004) won them a five-album deal with Capitol Records and paved the way for support slots with their heroes Motorhead, Motley Crue and The Rolling Stones. Their deal with Capitol turned sour, but the boisterous charge of debut album Runnin' Wild (2007) won a Metal Hammer Golden God Award for Best Debut Album and Lemmy and The Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins became high profile fans. Turning their amps up to 11, follow-up album No Guts, No Glory (2009) offered more debauched blasts of pub rock, but it's the lads' relentless touring schedule and notoriously hard partying live shows that cemented their growing reputation.
