The Sick World of Kombi Killers

Old school punk rockers Kombi Killers, from Brisbane, Australia, have been belting out their original sounds for over a decade. They have just released their latest single, ‘Sick World‘, through Riot Records. 

A hard-hitting punk track that pulls no punches, ‘Sick World’ highlights the current crisis that has held the world hostage since 2020. It sees the Kombi Killers unleash their vitriol on the covid situation, now dragging into a third year. With lockdowns, masks and isolation becoming normality, Kombi Killers just wanted to get back to playing shows.

You can stream/buy ‘Sick World‘ here and check out the video here at RAMzine.

Kombi Killers has had a few line-up changes over the years, but 2019 brought a new chapter of evolution as their energy levels and passion became even stronger. They headed back into the studio to rerecord some favourites and some new tracks written collaboratively.

The Kombi Killers now features front man and vocalist Steve Ingram, who was born in England and grew up during the punk revolution, drummer Dave Small, guitarists Allan Dyer and Steve Langford, and bass player Adam Markovich.

Highly influenced by the early punk scene they grew up on, from bands such as Anti-Nowhere League, The Sex Pistols to GBH and The Misfits. Having previously recorded two EPs in We Are Robot and Raise your Flag, The Kombi Killers built a strong following locally.

Last summer they released ‘ScuMo’. Back then, Australia was in the midst of the worst droughts in recorded history, bushfires raging the country with 75 lives lost. Prime Minister Scott Morrison (ScoMo) went on a secret holiday to Hawaii. That’s why Kombi Killers dub him “Scumo”. This energetic punk track doesn’t pull any punches.You can order ‘ScuMo’ here and watch the video to it right here at RAMzine, and order previous single ‘Don’t Start’, a classic punk style anthem, by clicking here.
