Their songs have sampled Jim Jones in “Mao Tse Tung Said” and Birmingham Six survivor Patrick Hill in “The Thrills Have Gone.” Trouser Press reviewer Jason Reeher wrote that A3’s “debut is brilliant and shambolic…owing huge debts to both Hank Williams and Happy Mondays.”
With their musical style having been described as “Sweet Mutherfucking Country Acid House”, the band are particularly notable for their fusion of styles, lyrics full of ironic intent, their deliberately humorous personas, and their outrageous live performances.
Catch this uniquely wild act this Easter long weekend at their two very special Australian dates.
