About the event

THE POOR, are coming to Mo’s for one night of mayhemic Oz Rock !

Having just returned from Europe, The Poor will launch their new single ‘Cry Out’ from the bands forthcoming full length album, their first in over 10 years!

The Poor started out playing the pub circuit in Darwin nearly 2 decades ago. The plan was simple, hard rockin’ hard drinkin’ and world domination. In 1992 the band cut their debut release, the EP; Rude, Crude & Tattooed, produced by Rick Brewster & Bob Spencer from The Angels and from the opening line you knew it was going to be something great; Aussie pub rock, in your face, no bullshit, straight to the point, rock ’n’ f%&k’n’ roll!

In mid 1993, the band recorded their debut album, ‘Who Cares’ album which spawned their most notable single, “More Wine Waiter Please”. An unrelenting couple of decades followed where they toured relentlessly, drank hard and rocked harder touring Australia, Europe & Japan, sharing stages with the likes of Suicidal Tendencies, The Scorpions, Alice In Chains & Van Halen. In 2000 the band went into hibernation until an invitation to tour with WASP was too good to refuse. It didn’t take long for them to get back into the rock’n’roll groove they cut so deeply in previous years. ‘Round 1’ & ‘Round 2’ albums followed in 2009 & 2010 respectively.

After 12 years of touring their supercharged ‘NO BS Aussie Rock’ show with local & International rock bands including AC/DC, The Screaming Jets, Rose Tattoo & the Angels, cut to the present day & The Poor are ready to release new music on their old and new fans…Original members Anthony (Skenie) Skene, Matt Whitby & (almost original drummer) Gavin Hansen are joined by relative newcomer & lead guitarist Daniel Cox.

Clam Sandwich, Piston Fist and Smoking Martha in support.
