Biography

Pioneers at the forefront of the Thrustcore revolution, Rick Dangerous & the Silkie Bantams emerged from the seedy slums of southern Sydney in the wee hours of 2013. Armed with little more than his original teeth, a twinkle in his eye and a hole in his back, Rick has assembled his feathered friends, Oscar de la Talon (guitar), Sir Gregory Peck (bass) and Feather Locklear (drums) to inappropriately suckle at the teat of the Australian music scene. Their sound has been described as sexy, repulsive, abusive, and at best, obnoxious. Rick D’s self-titled debut EP was released in 2014, with their live show quickly ruffling feathers. “With highly-danceable groove-metal riffage, some of the most clever and hilarious lyrics you’ve heard this century and a bespectacled tea-sipping frontman who pelvic-thrusts like a sexual maths teacher whilst screaming like a deranged psychopath, Rick Dangerous & The Silkie Bantams have one of the most captivating and entertaining live shows in Australia right now” – Music Feeds The band’s brand new EP “Thrust Machine” will drop in April 2016, seeing the band take their sound to the next level. Prepare yourself for the thrust frenzy. “RDATSB rock hard and are an extremely tight, kick arse band at the same time. With bands like this, you kinda get double the entertainment value, you get loud, high energy rock music played really well and delivered with real exuberance, and a live comedy act all in the one package. Their sound was eclectic as well, hard and heavy alternative rock with a touch of boogie, and some thrashier moments thrown in for some punch and grind value. They ended getting the nicely building crowd absolutely rocking.” – Rod Whitfield, Heavy Magazine
