Newcastle Surf Rockers PUNKFISH with special guest Ian “Pappy” Papworth, will be launching their brand new EP “If It’s Rockin’ at The Wickham Park Hotel this Wednesday, October 25th.

PUNKFiSH “L-R: Tempo Tantrum – Groove Frenzy – Sid Fishes – Riff Carnage”

Bored after years of bending songs and minds with classic cover mash-ups, PUNKFiSH is getting off the goat boat and heading for the green room. Roughly translated: no more cover versions, lots more original tunes – most of which have emanated from the somewhat dysfunctional mind of lead guitarist Riff Carnage.

With an oversupply of newly written material, PUNKFiSH headed into the studio in May 2016 to record an EP of sun-filled, panel van-rockin’ fun. The addition of guitarist and singer Sid Fishes to the powerhouse rhythm section of Tempo Tantrum (drums) and Groove Frenzy (bass) has resulted in 6 tracks of glorious noise celebrating and building on the vibe of the classic surf tunes that started it all, while keeping a weather eye on life in 21 century Oz.

Check out the video for the title track “If It’s Rockin…”
