WHAT THEY SAID…
I thought raw sex appeal was using steak tartare as a masturbation aid, until I heard the wild, lyrical, unfettered genital-to-genital appeal of the crotch-arousing Persian Drugs. Want a sonic ear fuck but with a long, penetrating eye contact? It’s here. It’s The Persian Drugs.
– Mike Bennie, Wine Maker/Writer/Journalist/Judge
The Persian Drugs are my favourite addiction.
– Tom Tilley, Presenter – HACK triple J
The night began with The Persian Drugs, an eclectic, noisy start from this six-piece self-described “tambourine boogie-band” who like beers. And like beers they definitely did, going so far as to write a song about bevvies and mentioning drinks (as well as asking the crowd for drugs) between songs. While their style was pretty liberal regarding the use of percussion (see above re: tambourines), they brought a big sound to the tiny stage with two frontwomen.
