The Living End

Australian punkabilly band the Living End started out jamming together and playing covers under the name Runaway Boys (after the Stray Cats song). Singer Chris Cheney had an obsession with the Stray Cats, to the point where, once he found Scott Owen to form a group with, he talked the piano-playing Owen into learning standup bass à la his American favorites. They met through their older sisters while attending the same high school, Wheelers Hill Secondary College, in Melbourne. Until they left school they went though a succession of drummers, developing a healthy following and reputation in Melbourne's active rockabilly scene.

While that scene gave the renamed Living End a couple of gigs a week, they quickly outgrew it, both in popularity and attitude. With 1995's EP/mini-album Hellbound, they turned their back on '50s rock revivalism and adapted that instrumentation to original songs steeped in U.K. punk. Their next EP, 1996's It's for Your Own Good, provided the first alternative radio breakthrough, with the song "From Here on In." During the six months the EP spent on the indie charts, they changed drummers for Travis Dempsey, still in rockabilly style, standing up at his kit. The group now found themselves in such demand that they felt they needed a quick release to tide themselves over while touring. They recorded new songs, "Second Solution" and "Prisoner of Society"; continued the theme with their version of the theme from a cult Australian TV series, Prisoner; and added live versions of songs from the Hellbound days their new fans might not have caught up with. The resulting EP was expected to equal "From Here on In"'s success on the alternative scene. It did far better. "Second Solution/Prisoner of Society" was the biggest selling Australian-made "single" of the entire '90s decade. It spent 37 weeks in the mainstream Top 40.

When the Living End released their self-titled first album in October 1998, it entered the sales charts at number one and sold platinum. After global tours, the band issued Roll On in early 2001. Their slick third album, Modern Artillery, their first with producer Mark Trombino (Jimmy Eat World, Drive Like Jehu), appeared three years later. The album featured new drummer Andy Strachan, who had replaced Dempsey just prior to recording. The band spent much of 2004 on the road, including U.S. tours opening for both Jet and the Vines, and later blink-182 and No Doubt. The singles collection From Here on In appeared that year as well. Entering the studio in early 2005, work began on album number four with producer Nick Launay, who had also worked on their earlier album, Roll On. The resulting State of Emergency appeared in Australia in February 2006, debuting at number one on the Australian charts. The Living End next hooked up with Adeline/East West for the record's North American release. Issued that July, the band spent the summer stateside on much of the Warped Tour before heading back home by the end of August for headlining dates with End of Fashion and Red Riders. ~ Ed Nimmervoll, Rovi

I wouldnt say you spot on bobonnit if your from the 50s and 60s most of the newer music is going to be just noise to you
Another group of noisemakers. This is not music. It is hack.
INCREDIBLE

erk... wrong cover art for modern ARTillery - that's the EP cover for Four on the Floor, which would seem obvious... anyway, punkabilly needs you guys, TLE! Don't back down.
They are so great; it's one of the few bands out there where I can listen to every song and love them.
i love this band its not like green day and its like notting else out there
Similar to Green Day and Me First & The Gimme Gimmes? Eh I don't see it. Bad Religion, Social Distortion and even Dropkick Murphys I can see though. Especially Bad Religion and Social Distortion.
alex...they don't need work. You need a better taste in music. :P
Woo! Love it. We Want More is good.
Pandora! Get White Noise on here! It's a great step forward for the band as an album - taking what they already do so well and sprinkling a little heavy rock in the mix. I was gonna add the song "How Do We Know?" to my station but it isn't here!
These guys are pretty good I must admit, but im afraid Franz Ferdinand is still my favorite band out there.
I love the living end, when is there new CD white noise going to be available in the U.S.?
These guys are freakin' sweet. The End of the World is probably their best song.
mclethin
