The Culture Industry delivers us a blend of old and new school punk with a grungy overtone. It is fun, good-time vibes, full of humour and character… and still very PUNK! On ‘DK Stance’ they hit the waves to deliver a surf punk anthem that rolls right alongside bands like the Dead Kennedys,Agent Orange, The Forgotten Rebels and Adolescents “This Surf- punk track is dedicated to Jack and his tribe of underground wave riders who just wanna have fun!’’ – The Culture Industry
ABOUT THE CULTURE INDUSTRY The Culture Industry is an Australian Punk-Grunge band from the sunny South Coast of NSW. Based in Wollongong these larrikins have been kicking around since 2014, and after a few line-ups change the band currently consists of Gnarly on rhythm guitar/ lead vocals, Nagy on bass/vocals, Leemoss on drums/vocals and new addition Arrianshredding on lead guitar like it’s nobody’s business.
Having known each other for almost 20 years, and from also playing in previous bands together, T.C.I. has developed intense chemistry both on and off the stage, solidifying a strong reputation in the underground scene.
With a DIY hardworking ethos, these middle-aged-kids have played internationally abroad and even more at home around Sydney, Canberra, and the East Coast of Australia. With onstage banter that is as much a part of their live show as their music, these charismatic scumbags are always keen for a laugh and a good time. Play hard. Party hard. It’s time to get Cultured in the Industrial sense of the word!!
“They are without a doubt one of the few bands I know around Wollongong keeping the punk scene alive and kicking.”
– Behind the Scene
“Wollongong outfit The Culture Industry’s debut album is to the point, unrelenting, and hard-hitting as ever, solidifying their head thrashing status.”
