Corowa is for famous people breaking the shackles and heading for fame. Luminaries hailing from this town on the mighty Murray River include Mike Walsh (TV host), John Longmire (AFL player & coach), Sam Goth (tennis player), Joey Palmer (1880’s cricketer).
The Squid Doctors are young giants walking out of the shadows of their township’s famous artists to forge a truly individual pathway to uniqueness! Wil Johnson – lead vocals & drums, Matthew Toy – backing vocals, rhythm guitar & synth, Josh Tidd – bass guitar & backing vocals and Zarvan O’Keefe on lead guitar.
All these young punks are about 18 years old. A quirky driving rhythm section, layers of creamy riffs, great harmonies with dishes of shoegaze thrown in for good measure.
The Squid Doctors recently won The Push Freeza Regional Battle of the Bands and their live sound and stage presence on the night was dynamic!
BMF has found Corowa’s answer to The Go-Betweens! Ride on their Yellow Submarine with the Squid Doctors!
