||Sneeze Weed CD (2012) |
Bonniwells albums Hailing from Geelong and originally New Zealand, Bonniwells play garage songs about religion, bad health, solidarity and girls. They combine a marriage of drums, guitar & bass and occasionally a second guitar.
Sneeze Weed has been recorded sporadically and spontaneously in a variety of living rooms across two states of this barren continent. Bonniwells have churned out eleven tracks of garage punk, slop hop and sonic explosions in the form of their upcoming release Sneeze Weed. The album is due for release on Friday 22nd June 2012 via Z-Man Records.
