The Fumes

Compelling Sydney two-piece, the Fumes burst onto the scene in 2004. The Fumes deliver multi-facetted stylistic raw blues tunes mashed with healthy rock riffs and snappy beats. Steve Merry (vocals, guitar) spent 12 months in the U.S where he took on some mentoring from Bob Brozman and an opportunity to immerse himself with many styles of music. It helped define and develop the Fumes. The Fumes complete with the addition of Joel Battersby, who had been drumming with members of the Beautiful Girls, proceeded to churn out an 8-track demo. The demand for the demo was so strong it was re-packaged as a 7-track pre-release for gig sales.

I'm an old fart who doesn't get out much these days. Only just got on to 'the fumes' today (fuck where have I been?!!)
Got 'Stargazer' elsewhere, but wanted to have a listen to earlier stuff too.
cheers and thanks
