My Dream Rider: Concrete Surfers

Brisbane’s ​Concrete Surfers​ deliver huge walls of fuzz and bass with forward thinking lyrics and an anti-establishment flair.
Brothers Jovi & Jamie Brook (vocals, guitar and drums respectively) paired up with mates Sean Foster (lead guitar) and Trent Courtenay (Bass) in high school for what has become a fast moving trajectory for the group of four kids from the South East Queensland suburbs.

  1. SLAB OF AUSTRALIAN HEAVYS

Drinking is fun but don’t over-do it before going on stage (Lesson from personal experience). However, the only beer worth drinking for us is a slab of Insert slab of Australian heavy lager

 

  1. BACKYARD CRICKET SET 

No better way to get in the mood for a show if some light-hearted competition is involved prior. It would also be a great and inclusive way to have some fun with people backstage and other bands/artists!

 

  1. SUPER SOAKERS

Sometimes it’s undesirable to be at a summer festival on the east coast of Australia during midday without a way to cool yourself down. This right here is the solution

  1. ASSORTMENT OF CHIPPIES N DIPPIES
    A nice light meal before playing is key so we don’t feel too heavy I reckon. French onion dip essential and there is these really yummy tomato and onion chippies that Sean and Jovi love.

 

  1. A QUIET SPACE
    Sometimes all we really want is a nice quiet space to have a chat before we go on stage and become loud. It’s a good way to destress if we have been on the move all day trying to get to the venue.

 

  1. SOMEBODY TO GIVE OUR GEAR TO

This is a big one for us because it can be kinda stressful after a show when you wanna have a few drinks and then get an Uber home but it’s impossible to fit our gear plus us into a small car haha. Disclaimer: Don’t get too sloshed between the show and home and leave a guitar outside of the venue only to have it never returned (This really happened and it’s still quite sad).

 

  1. BIG FAN OR AIRCON
    We are really sweaty at the best of times so this would be a nice touch to remain comfortable.

To celebrate My Life On Repeat‘s imminent release the Surfers are hitting the road. Surf’s up right up and down the East Coast for their first big headline tour this April. There’s only one thing left to do. Just ride the wave
