Come and surrender your soul to the blues and grooving magic of the debut single from Willie J & The Bad Books, with Backdoor Man officially out in the world today. An energetic and passionate tune revelling in blues rock with an Australian flavour, Backdoor Man is accompanied by a black-and-white clip shot in a tram and showcasing the entire band doing what they do best. With the band set to imminently head into the studio to record their debut album, Backdoor Man is a sweltering introduction to the Melbourne amalgamation of Motorhead, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Johnson if they hung out in an Aussie pub. Having recently busted out onstage alongside Dallas Frasca in Fitzroy, the band also have a series of shows lined up in December and January, including an official single launch for Backdoor Man locked and loaded for Friday January 6 at the Northcote Social Club.


Pink Floyd
I was high on mushrooms with my brother. Roger Waters played every song from every album. The surround sound from where we were seated blew my mind… The light show? Come on. It could’ve been the mushrooms…

Buddy Guy
Saw Buddy at the Hamer Hall! He got a lift up to the balcony right where we were sitting and he just shredded!

Green Day
This started it all in 2005. This was the beginning of me wanting to shred on stage in front of an audience.

At the Corner Hotel, there was a couple literally having sex right next to me. High on weed, high in love. Loudest show I’d been to.

Their Black Ice tour was unforgiving rock and roll through and through. I had the time of my life. My dad, my brother and I were in the mosh pit. It was such a wild show.
