"HITS have been playing around Brisbane for a few years now... on and off between disasters, usually of their own making. Very compromising members of some defunct "seminal” (cheers Macka) Brisbane punk bands and some currently fabulous ones as well. Apart from our own shows we've played support to the likes of The Scientists, New Christs, Mustang, the Kelpies, the Dirtbombs, The Drones, The Stems, Legends of Motorsport and Lime Spiders as well some of the best of their city's heavy hitters such as Giants of Science, Sixfthick, Vegas Kings, Lords of Wong, New Jack Rubys, Dangermen, Horrortones, etc" from Myspace
'... the best rock and roll album to come out of Brisbane since “I’m Stranded.”'
'... this could be one of those discs we look back at in ten years time as an all time classic.'
'This is an album in a distinctive Australian tradition – it nods to the classic 1970s Albert’s sound as much as it does to the Saints (as well as the Pistols and the Dolls). The influence of Ian Rilen, not just in X mode but also early Rose Tattoo and the later Love Addicts, looms especially large. But Hunt’s style, his phrasing and humour, makes him a genuine original. I can’t compare him to anyone. I dare say that in future other Australian singers will be compared to him.'
Le groupe s'est formé en 2005 sur les cendres de quelques combos parmi les plus intéressants de la scène de Brisbane, notamment GAZOONGA ATTACK et les redoutables STRUTTER, auteurs il y a dix ans d'un putain d'album chez SAFETY PIN, le label du regretté KIKE TURMIX. On retrouve le chanteur et son grain de voix reconnaissable, entouré de deux filles aux guitares (qui assurent aussi des choeurs de toute beauté) et d'une rythmique solide. La musique s'est un peu assagie par rapport à la furia stoogienne de STRUTTER, mais les démons sont toujours là, POWDER MONKEYS, THIN LIZZY, les REPLACEMENTS, ROSE TATTOO, et ce bon vieux OZ rock comme ils le disent eux-même.

"...I’m giving it four bottles after a couple of listens. I already like it as much as the Dollsquad’s album and the Booby Traps’ last disc. They both got four bottles too, so that’s fair. The thing is, the more that I listen to the Hit’s disc, the more I like it. You have to give it a little bit of a chance to hear the songs in the drone. They are certainly there. I am really getting the feeling this could be one of those discs we look back at in ten years time as an all time classic. I’ll keep an extra bottle on ice for them." B. Short
