Nice one
by: Shaun Neruda

The" arthritis brothers" is an amazing rock band. I have been following them for several years. Sadly they have not got the kind of recognition they deserve. Believe me! This is one of those bands that can take you back to the 90s.

CD's and Vids
by: The Bandit

G'day Punters.
We currently dont have any CD's or Video's left but are looking for a good Promoter to start the making and distribution of more and new ones.
If your a fisherman Davo, we reckon you'll get a kick out of one of our new one's "Lawn Mowin' Man". It's on the Album "Livin' In The Territory". We've just got to get it out there now.
Thanks again for all the great support we're receiving from the Top-Enders.

The money ??????
by: Deano

We think we've worked it out. If you go to the Doctor, you pay a certain amount... if you go to the Specialist you should and do pay more. While our Pubs/Clubs here charge exhorbitant prices for drinks, they dont want to pay appropriately for our Specialist or Favourite Bands. While there are plenty of Doctor's here, all our Specialists go South to get the pay they deserve.
In wishing the Arthritis Brothers and others of their ilk the best, we settle in to the same old same old of Darwin being once again left with the S.O.S.
How about you venue's start LISTENING to US, the locals that you rely on.

It certainly paid off
by: Steve Weatley

Hi Russell aka The Bandit.
I watched you many years ago as a budding drummer in the "Chase" and "Midnight Special" days. Now I see and hear of you as one of our great aussie guitarists. You should be very proud of your achievements mate.
I wish you and your band the very best.
Keep on Rockin.
Steve.

The end of an era
by: The Bandit

Rito punter's, to all of you from Darwin to the rest of Aus, the Arthritis Brothers and Pot-Belly Rock Bands are closing down and members moving on to other crazy things in life.
Let us take this opportunity to personally thank all of you (the audiences) who've attended our shows over the past years and also to thank you all for elevating us up the ranks. We are all "good muso's" but we would never have achieved what we have without YOU so goodbye, best wishes and "Beware as one day we may return".
The AB Band and PBR Band.

Arthritis Brothers - saw you guys at the Noony Rodeo on saturday 28th, you guys are awesome.
The organisers of the noony shows need to lift their game a bit though, we want you on stage for a lot longer than you were.
If Rock and Roll is King then you guys are Royalty. Love that crazy guitarist of yours.

My wife and I are avid Band Go-ers and whilst having seen some great acts, the Arthritis Bros willingness to have their audience's participate puts them a cut above. Great show.

The Arthritis Bros

The comedy of Rock n Roll doesn't come any better than this. Your Bass Player is a brilliant Musician and the perfect straight-man for that crazy guy on vocals/guitar. Great Drummer as well.

Why cant we see more of bands like this. Is it because the pubs would rather pay those cheap karaoke groups? these are the kind of bands that we (the public) love to rock to.

Hopefully this means that you guys are going to learn modern day and alternative music as Old Rock and Roll is DEAD.
