MCLUSKY* Nostalgia

For the first time in 15 years, mclusky* will be going on a tour around Australia, playing in Perth at Badlands on Wednesday, January 8.

Now known as mclusky* to reference missing original members, the new incarnation will feature Future of the Left members Andrew “Falco” Falkous and Jack Egglestone, with the addition of Damien Sayell from the St Pierre Snake Invasion.

mclusky* were a band between 1999 and 2005, in which time they made three albums and became a seminal post hardcore punk outfit. Slow-forward 14 years and, thanks to the uncanny pull of nostalgia and gravity, they have made more friends but no more albums.

Originally persuaded to reform in order to help save a local music venue and for other vaguely charitable reasons, mclusky* is ready to charge across the nation on one hell of a nostalgia tour.

mclusky* play Badlands on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. Tickets from
