The Re-mains formed in Nimbin in 2002 and since then have toured every rodeo, outback pub and inner city dive in Australia, releasing eight killer albums along the way. They invented country rock and roll, using banjo, pedal steel and acoustic guitar alongside a rock rhythm section. Along the way they’ve had more lineup changes than the Melbourne Hit Man’s Association, but founding members Mick Daley and Leigh Ivin are still leading the charge.
Three massive tours of Canada and a huge run through Europe have sealed the deal for these country rock and roll heavyweights. Their live album Love’s Last Stand scored four stars in Rolling Stone Magazine and they’ve played just about every festival there is in Australia including the East Coast Blues and Roots five times, Woodford, Splendour, Darwin fest, Tennant Creek fest, St Kilda fest … the list goes on. As does country rock and roll.
