Aussie Punk Tsunami AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS Rolled All Over Antwerp

16 November 2022


Who: A non-stop volcanic rawk & roll bolide from down under, led by the
utterly cool and stormy frontwoman Amyl Taylor. An uproarious Melbourne-based
noise turbine generating a lethal cocktail of The Runaways (Joan Jett‘s teenage band)
and metallic fury Plasmatics (with the legendary Wendy O. Williams) fueled by an eruptive Motörhead drive. So far they released two LPs. The self-titled debut (2019) and the follow-up Comfort To Me.

Where: Trix, Antwerp, Belgium
When: 15 November 2022

TUTV impressions: Holy shit! What a gash gash gash gig! Stage beast Amyl was all over
the place, on and off the podium, while screaming, sneering and spitting at the top of her lungs backed by a mean poised punk machine. She’s a natural-born entertainer and totally real. When she doesn’t sing, she has her tongue out, she giggles, she jokes, she smiles from left to right, and most of all as she said herself so many times before, she has the time of her life.

And so had the enraptured crowd. From the first riff on a sweaty moshpit formed in front of the stage. Every single steamroller was yelled along, word by word. It was an old skool kamikaze punk ‘n roll show at its very hot. MAD! BAD! RABID! HYPERKINETIC! NEUROTIC!

Oh yes, I had a bonkers time too, as much as 3 years ago when I saw Amyl explode
also in Antwerp but in a much smaller venue (and having a beer with her afterward).

Here’s a loud and clear idea of
the Aussies’ live firepower.

Now Watching – Drop Dead Gorgeous AMYL TAYLOR And Her SNIFFERS On Fire On TV

Eye-catching videos

Drop-dead gorgeous Aussie punkette AMY TAYLOR and her SNIFFERS
have two blistering punk rock albums out, so far. Their self-titled boiling
debut LP (2019) and the red-hot follow-up Comfort To Me (2021).

A week ago the Aussie fury and her desperadoes caught
fire in front of the cameras of The Late Night Show with
a volcanic version of Hertz, one of the many highlights on
the new longplayer. And of course, all eyes are on Amyl.

Don’t drool too much, folks

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: The Real Punk Rock Deal With AMYL And Her SNIFFERS

AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS are one of the hottest acts going apeshit on open-air podia around the globe right now. With two sizzling-and-steaming-punk-and-roll albums in
three years under their belt now they have enough stonking stunners to blow people’s minds.

Amyl is the real deal. I know, I saw
her live a couple of years ago and I
have my ticket for her October show
in Antwerp (Belgium) in my pocket

Here she and her sniffin’ comrades explode in Atlanta last April when playing
Security (from their 2021 LP Comfort To Me) for the festival’s security guards.

Turn up the heat, Amyl…


AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS – Sturm Und Drang On Their New Punk ‘N’ Roll Album ‘COMFORT TO ME’

11 September 2021

Who: Smoking Australian quartet
that hit the scene in 2016

New album: COMFORT TO ME
Second LP after their cooking self-titled debut (2019)

Release: 10th September 2021 – order info here

NME‘s verdict: “The Melbourne punks’ second record is louder, sillier and at times more introspective than its predecessor, showing a more versatile side to the band… When the band rally against being pigeonholed on ‘Don’t Fence Me In’, it feels like they’ve finally escaped this fate – sure, they can still pull a decent pint of pub rock, but ‘Comfort To Me’ serves as proof
that there’s far more to them than just that.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Old skool punk ‘n’ roll? Absolutely. Any good? You betcha! Amyl and her buddies made another blistering riff-manic-monster of a hell fucking hell yeah record. Pogo madness is back. Sturm un drang from start to finish. HOLY MOLLY! (Amyl, if you read this, know that I’ll be on the right side – for you, it’s the left one – of the stage when you hit Belgium again. Over and out.)

Amyl has her eyes on us…


27 December 2020

Aussie rockers AMYL & THE SNIFFERS made a blitzkrieg impression last year with their
self-titled debut LP. A red-hot-blooded-deafening-retro-rock-powerhouse that leaves
your ears echoing long after it blasted through your trembling speakers.

And live??? OMG! Pure dynamite as Turn Up The Volume experienced in Antwerp last year. Manic hell cat AMYL looks like the twin sister of blonde punk Goddess Cherie Curry from 70s punk combo The Runaways and sets venues on fire with her bonkers stage presence. She’s pure dynamite and an overwhelming non-stop whirlwind!

This year the steamy band released a 3-track live EP Live At The Croxton (three bombs from the debut LP). The back to basiscs video for opener CONTROL makes you jump up and down like a kangaroo on illegal substances. No special effects, no arty farty visuals, only tons of adrenaline in motion. Oh my punkness!

Don’t lose your head, folks…
