Biography

Papa Pilko And The Binrats describe their sound as Voodoo Soul & Alt Country Rock N’ Roll. This label stems from the vast array of sounds that the band produces, which is hard to pin down at the best of times. The band has earned a reputation as one of Sydney’s standout live acts and have hit stages across the East Coast to much acclaim. 2015 saw the release of their debut album ‘Till The End Of The Road’ which has been received very well across the country and continues to see the band rapidly expanding it’s following as they tour the country with their notoriously raucous live show and unique sound. “Dressed in all black cowboy gear and an array of headgear, the seven piece provide an interesting spectacle, centred on manic frontman Cyrus Pilko. It’s hard to tell how much of his face-contorting, hip-swinging, hand-flailing, and sweat-drenched boot-shuffling is part of a character he has created or if it’s genuinely how he is, but the singer is one of the most entertaining, charismatic, and brilliantly ridiculous Australian front-men around right now” – Paul McBride, The AU Review. “There’s an exciting and fascinating group of new bands across the country ploughing the furrows of a fantastic blend of country, rock, and blues genres – Graveyard Train and Quarry Mountain Dead Rats to name but two, but Papa Pilko And The Binrats could be the best of them.” – The AU Review
