To be completly honest we had never heard of the Perth based trio named Scatterback.

It was a phone call to the 88.5fm studio on a saturday afternoon that the name first appeared on the Sunday Session radar with a conversation that went like…

“Hi, we are scatterback and was wondering if there was a way we could get onto your radio playlist?” 

After a quick chat with the voice on the phone a hastily setup appointment was made for the Sunday night on the Sunday Session with Suzie Q, Ash + Pete.

In the studio that night we were introduced to Alex, the one who drew the short straw, and his acoustic

With Kier on bass/backing vocals,  Anthony on drums and Alex himself doing the duties on lead vocal and guitar they form the triowho are creating a powerful musical mix of hard rock with a twist of funk.

With a sound similar to bands such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the boys take their influence from such musical greats as Jeff Beck,  Extreme, The Police and Alice In Chains.

Their new single – Fun(k) House – has just been released.

On this night, Alex brought his ‘A game as he went wicked singing a couple of his songs in great acoustic style

The band’s mission is to create an atmosphere of excitement for their fans by serving up a mix of catchy riffs, sweet and mesmerising bass lines and a beat to move you, body and soul.
