4 Zzz: The Year Was 1975....Featuring 'Buffalo Revisited' says

The Year Was 1975... Platform shoes, hot pants, flares and long hair were the height of fashion, HJ Holdens were selling like hotcakes, and a little community radio station by the name of 4ZZZ was born....
Seminal Brisbane radio station 4ZZZ FM turns 40 this December and to celebrate they're hosting a month-long party! One such shindig will be held at iconic Brisbane live music venue The Zoo on Saturday December 19th and will feature a revised version of groundbreaking Australian rock band, Buffalo.

Front man and guitarist Dave Tice has frequently been dubbed The Godfather of Australian Stoner Rock for his work with ultra-heavy ‘70s band Buffalo and this year Tice is re-visiting his revered outfit’s legacy with a series of select shows. Tice has assembled a new line-up under the banner 'Buffalo Revisited' to focus on the earliest of the original band’s five albums. Tice will be joined by Vince Cuscuna (guitar), Steve Lorkin (bass) and Murray Shepherd (drums). All of them are veterans of a host of underground Sydney bands.

Buffalo formed in Sydney in 1971. Largely unrecognized by commercial radio, Buffalo was one of the country’s first exponents of the style heavy metal, pre-dating other pioneering Australian hard rock and heavy metal acts, such as Coloured Balls, AC/DC, The Angels, Taste and Rose Tattoo.

Like many pioneering heavy metal acts, Buffalo incorporated strong influences of bluesrock and psychedelia. The band’s sound paralleled that of Black Sabbath, who they supported on their first Australian tour. Buffalo’s first three LPs, “Dead Forever”, “Volcanic Rock” and “Only Want You For Your Body”, are now true classics with original copies commanding thousands of dollars.
Fast-forward forty years and the band and their albums now have a cult following. Buffalo Revisited is presenting the music of Buffalo in what promises to be an electrifying not-to be-missed show at The Zoo with supports from celebrated local acts Hobo Magic, Heavy Roller, and Sabrina Lawie & The Hunting Party as part of 4ZZZ FM's 40th birthday celebrations.

Tickets for this show are on sale now through Oztix and are $30 +BF.

P.S. All pre-sold ticket purchasers can bring a friend for FREE! Redeemable at the door on the night. This offer is valid until 6:00PM on Friday 18th December. Door entry on the night is $20.....Merry Christmas!
