Simon Chainsaw met Tony Currenti at a show in early 2016 in Sydney. Simon was touring Australia at that time and Tony came along to a show. The pair hit it off and after Simon returned to Brazil (where he was living at that time) they kept in contact. Tony went touring in the UK, Germany and Italy. So when Simon returned to Australia at the end of 2016 they cooked up a plan to record a couple of songs! Some good old fashioned High Voltage style rock'n'roll! So in early 2017 they hooked up for a jam and the hit the studios to lay down the drum tracks!
The drum kit was the SAME kit that Tony used to record the High Voltage LP! It was a real piece of history!! A 1967 Ludwig kit and it looked and sounded amazing!!
After that Simon returned to Brazil where, with the help of his Brazilian band and studio producer, layed down the guitars, bass and vocals and then mixed it to capture the 70's kinda sound! Simon was in the middle of recording his upcoming LP "THIRTEEN" so it all too longer than expected.
These are Tonys 1st Australian recordings in over 30 years! (and his 2nd recording in that time as he recorded one track for German band Stinger when he was in Germany). I'm sure you'll agree that Tony recording some new material was long overdue. He is a legend that needs to recognised as the blueprint for the AC/DC style drumming, he's the man that dictated the "swing" that would influence a generation (THE CULT's Electric LP not withstanding ) RESPECT!
