ImageIf you did not have your ear to the Sydney underground in the early 90’s, you most likely woulda missed this outfit. I got sent this YouTube link today and it’s great. So many Australian underground bands never got filmed – so the fact that this video exists – ensures that long-lost rock n roll outfits like this, can be brought back to life online. I am fairly certain me and the Cowboy checked out Dizzy Dollz – probably at the KD or Springfields. Maybe they supported the Candy Harlots ? Dates and places are getting sketchy as the years roll by. In a different time and place maybe – Dizzy Dollz woulda had more of an impact – but they were lodged in an era of mostly mute kids all looking towards Seattle and buying shit like Pearl Jam or the horrendous Ugly Kid Joe. Vocalist Bella screams through Runaways covers like ‘Cherry Bomb’ and ‘I Love Playin’ With Fire’ with much gusto. Two thumbs up from Mr Rockbrat. Looking back – they weren’t all that different to Madame X – and they could belt out a couple of very cool originals. Can’t be sure – but I think the guitarist Glenn Read coulda also been in Starlet and Platinum Blakk – correct me if I’m wrong. Sadly, bass player Lisa passed away some time back. Anyway, enjoy this quick trip back in time to a winter’s night in 1992 at the western Sydney venue called the Cobra Club. Good, fun, rock n roll people – and ain’t that the way it’s supposed to be ?!

    I loved this band!!!!!!! The kids of today don’t know what they’re missing. How about an interview with Glen, the guitarist, I believe Rockbrat and Cowboy Col probably watched him support Ronnie James Dio as part of White Widow in about 86.
