“ The Detonators’ blazing jump-rock tunes are as slick as their teddy-boy quiffs ” - mX Newspaper.

Before Rock, there was Rockabilly, Blues and Rhythm n’ Blues. The Detonators, through their original songs, reinvent the styles that made the mid to late 50s such a vital time in music’s history. They play an era, not simply a genre. Australia's leading roots rockers release their fourth album/fifth release Top Night Out August 2007. The quartet’s original blend of blazing jump-rock blues is infused with the driving energy inherent in their heros’ music. Chuck Berry, Little Walter and Hound Dog Taylor are some of the influences that give this band their distinguished sound.
