«The Vasco Era» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

Melbourne band The Vasco Era features vocalist and guitarist Sid O’Neil, his brother and bassist Ted O’Neil, and drummer Michael Fitzgerald. Hailing from the coastal town of Apollo Bay, the boys recall playing to packed out living rooms before hitting actual stages around Australia. Two albums, several national tours and gigs at major festivals followed, with highlight performances including support slots for The Black Keys, The Hold Steady and The Violent Femmes. Only one of the three members lives in a house – the others stay with their friends, girlfriends, parents, friends’ parents and girlfriends’ parents. One day they’d all like to live in Spain. The Vasco Era’s third album, independently released in October this year, captures the band in their prime. ‘Child Bearing Hips’ is the first single from The Vasco Era’s self-titled album. Their debut studio album Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside was released in 2007, paving the way to write and record their critically acclaimed second album, Lucille. Released through Universal, Lucille came to life after 18 months of writing when the band teamed up with producer Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, The Temper Trap, The Presets and Little Red). “Utter Brilliance, they are, in one word, perfection.” (Beat Magazine).Artist websitewww.thevascoera.comwww.myspace.com/thevascoera
