News:
  • 6/15/2006: new album out now!
    The new album of the Hard-Ons is released via Bad Taste in Sweden. It is called Most People are a Waste of Time and it is reviewed here (US) and here (Oz).

  • 12/8/2005: current European tour, new single now and album in April!!!
    Ok, I admit it: I was a little bit lazy about the news lately, but here they come: The Hard-Ons are currently touring Europe. Hopefully you'll have the chance to catch em. See tour dates in respective section on this site or better on their website or even better in the forum of their website. The incident that triggered me to update the site is Tex Dixigas' email with the info that his record label released a 7-incher from the Hard-Ons called "There goes one of the Creeps that hassled my Girlfriend". Check out his website at redloungerecords.de or contact him directly via email under redloungerecords@gmx.de. And last but not least, the Hard-Ons' website speaks of a new album that is already mastered and will be out in April. Let's look forward to this release.

  • 5/1/2003: New album, website and Europe tour!!!
    Accidentally, I found a new album of the Hard-Ons at my favourite record store. The album was officially released on Monday, the 28th of April on Bad Taste in Sweden. My first impression is that this album is a good one: Some melodic songs with harmonies and some songs with Death Metal-like vocals. I like it so far.
    There is a new Hard-Ons website (why are they moving their address for every album?!?), which is not reachable as of the time I write this due to bandwidth limitation. Finally, the Hard-Ons tour Europe in May/June 2003. Go to the new Hard-Ons website for tourdates or try here or probably better here. Sadly, as with the last tour, they seem to not plan their tour in advance in detail, but rather start off to Europe and see what happens, which does not make it easy for a fan to find their nearest show.

  • 3/7/2001: Tourdates are popping up!
    Ray just sent over the tour dates that are known so far. Have a look at the tour dates section. Personally, I hope that a gig in Nürnberg will be added; either in the second week on 16th or 18th of April (Nbg is right on the motorway from Berlin to Innsbruck), or near the end of the tour on 29th of May (Nbg is aside the motorway from Vienna to the Dutch-British ferries). BTW: After I was initially a little disappointed/not too much overwhelmed by the new CD, I tossed it in the player again the day before yesterday and I am getting more and more addicted. After my initial doubts about the quality of the album, meanwhile, I can more and more agree to the opinion of that Oz newspaper, that said about it "best Hard-Ons album ever." I can only recommend it and suggest you to take a little time to get accustomed to it. Then you'll definitely like it very much.
    Photo section opened: I recently received three action loaded photos of the heros from Jochen Ruschinzik. See em here

  • 2/21/2001: New album available in Europe
    The new Hard-Ons album "This Terrible Place" is available in Europe through Bad Taste Records. It features 14 songs, 12 new ones, 2 already known from the '99er single releases. My favourite is "First Cut is the Weakest".

  • 2/15/2001: New album announced in newsletter by BadTasteRecords
    btr 45 HARD-ONS This Terrible Place CD
    The legendary Hard-Ons are back with their first new full-length in 7 years!! Already reviewed in Rolling Stone and Australias biggest newspaper as "the best Hard-Ons album ever", it combines elements of punk, pop, bubblegum, psychedelia and all sorts of other influences into a great sounding album, parts beautiful, parts brutal.

  • 2/13/2001: New official website opened!
    A few days ago, the URL of the new official website delivered some kind of error message, but only to come up with the real thing soon afterwards: You can now reach the website at: http://www.hardons.com.au. So far, you can hear 5 real audio snippets from new Hard-Ons songs, see some photos in the gallery, use the Hard-Ons chat and find some links to other Hard-Ons pages. The slots for "news", "gigs", "profile" and "message" need to be filled with info or or need to be fixed, but hey, it's a starter. The links section is missing one Hard-Ons page: Mine! But hey, wait a minute! The order of the links is the same as on my page. Even the words are pretty much the same. Thanks Ray! Copying from this site is even more honour than linking to my site ;-).

  • 2/1/2001: Hard-Ons playing live on 9th and 10th of February!
    The Hard-Ons will play two shows in the next week: On Friday, February 9th, they will play at "Caringbah Bizzo's." Support acts are "Downtime" and the "Killer Klowns." Next day, Sat, Feb 10th, they will play at the "Annandale Hotel" supported by "High Society" and "Earth to Nigel." The flyer is depicted to the right; you get a larger version, by clicking on it or by clicking here.

  • 12/13/2000: New official website!
    The Hard-Ons have a new home on the www: It can be located at: http://www.hardons.com.au/. Check it out. If I'm not completely wrong, the colours on the welcome page were different yesterday, so that would mean there's currently someone working on it. I'm looking forward to the grand opening somewhen in the near future.

  • 11/12/2000: New album out tomorrow!:
    The new Hard-Ons album will be out by tomorrow - at least in Australia. It will be called "This Terrible Place" and the cover is top one on the right. If you are in or from Australia, be sure to watch local annoucements for shows, as the Hard-Ons rock Australia once more these days. (They are on tour, man!) There is no exact date to when the record will be released in the rest of the world. The following info is from the upcoming section of the November 2000 newsletter from Bad Taste Records:

    TBA    THE HARD-ONS "This Terrible Place" CD    late January
    The rumors are true! Bad Taste will release the new Hard-Ons album worldwide excluding Australia!! The Hard-Ons is one of those bands we all grew up listening to and to be able to release one of their records is well...like a dream come true... With classics releases like "Dickcheese" and "Love is a battlefield of wounded hearts" the Hard-Ons have created a large following all over the world. We're waiting for the mastered version of the album, but within a couple of weeks you will be able to find tons of info, MP3:s, pictures etc on this incredible band on our web site!


  • 9/21/2000: Some details on the new records:
    More news on the new albums: The elephant picture in the news of 23rd of June will be the cover of the "Best of" album to be released in South America, in Argentina to be precise on UGLY records. This album will feature the same tracks as the "Best of" from last year. The studio sessions from the end of June were successful and the recordings are finished now. As a result, the new album is not far from being released on Chatterbox in Australia and on Bad Taste Records for everywhere else in the world. Below are some potential covers for the new album:
    No Nazis!
    The Hard-Ons are an Australian band and far from being a Nazi band. Only for those, who don't know and are concerned because of the Donald...

  • 6/23/2000: New record is coming:
    I just received an email from Ray telling me that they 're gonna record a new album tomorrow with 24 new songs. Now that is news that helps getting through the hot times (or the cold for people from the southern hemisphere). If this record comes out within the next 4 or 5 months, it will be the record that will help doing or finishing my diploma thesis, but that's just a personal note. I'm looking forward to it!
    The image below was included with this mail, so probably this is gonna be the cover of the new album. (Wait a minute! Wasn't the last album called "best of" as well?!?). Anyway, great artwork once more! I ask myself: Who is this granny from hell? She appeared on Hard-Ons covers before. Any special nightmares with grannies on your side, Ray?

  • 1/19/2000: Hard-Ons featured in Ox #36:
    Recently, I received the German punkrock magazine Ox from my new record mailorder. I'm not sure, when this fine piece of literature was published, but it seems to be from late summer/autumn '99. It features an interview with Blackie, two concert reviews (Aachen (D) and Madrid (E)) and the cover drawn by Ray depicted to the right: Cover of Ox no. 36

  • 6/8/1999: Tour update:
    Yesterday I've seen them for the second time on their tour in Europe. Last week at the "incognito" in Munich, the crowd was not so crowdy and the voice was a little silent, but impressionable show!! I've never ever seen a band doing so much "hairwork". Yesterday at the "Desi" in Nürnberg, the sound was better, the venue was more appropriate, but as in Munich, there was not much advertisement for the shows. This time the location was half way sold out. I was able to speak to their soundman Randy and he confirmed what was obvious to see from the shows: The treesome has fun together. Blackie said that after the tour they are gonna work a little on their projects "Chrackie" and "Nunchukka Superfly", but the plans are they do another album with completely new songs after that.

  • 4/13/1999: More release news (on the side-projects):
    - Nunchukka Superfly 's (Blackie, Ray, Joel) album will be out in Europe soon
    - Toulouse's (Ray, Joel, brother) album "Sketches of Stanmore" is out (65 minutes, very consumer friendly price)
    - Blackie's album with Chris Townend (ex-Crent, ex-Kiss My Poodle's Donkey) should be available soon as well

    If you want to have these records, you could go to your favourite local record store and let them do their best, or you better go to one of the shows of the Hard-Ons, take a few bucks more with you and get it all there.

  • 4/7/1999: There are new releases (coming):
    - The Best of the Hard-Ons with bonus live CD / Citadel / Australia only
    - The Best of the Hard-Ons with bonus rarities CD / Citadel / Europe only
    - The Best of the Hard-Ons double vinyl album with seven bonus tracks / Radio Blast / World /e-mail contact
    - Yesterday & Today EP / One Way Street / Australia, Europe
    - You disappointed me, say Goodbye 7" single / Radio Blast / Germany
    - Sharks Head, Birthday 7" single / Munster / Spain / email contact

  • March 1999: The Hard-Ons have a lovely designed official website at http://www.ozemail.com.au/~citadel/hard-ons.html

  • 12/10/1998: The Hard-Ons recorded 6 songs with Ed Kuepper (personalized punk rock history in Oz) in his great studio. According to Ray, it was quickly done, sounds good (of course!) and it is raw and melodic. Their first show in Europe will be on 24th of April in Belgium. Possibly, Nunchukka Superfly will be on stage there as well. (see tour dates below!)

  • 10/11/1998: The Hard-Ons are together again! As Ray wrote me on 11th of October 1998, they are playing shows again down in Oz. They want to tour Europe in '99 and plan to have new material out by then. Nunchukka Superfly is still alive and kicking as well.


 

Photos

  Recently, I received three great photos from Jochen Ruschinzik, who followed the Hard-Ons on a couple of gigs during their '99er European tour. The photos were taken on the 20th of June in Marl in the Schacht 8. Click on the photos to see a larger version of em. Thx for the pix, Schinnek!

A short band history

  The Hard-Ons are were history, coz they split in '94. They are a threesome, Blackie (g, voc), Ray (bass) and Keish (drums, voc) from Sydney, Australia. Starting in the 80ies, they rocked the boat. To describe their music style would need too much space, but the Ramones are a good comparison as I think. As they are from down under you can see them in the tradition of good Aussie punk bands starting with the Saints and Birthday Party to name a few. They started with cover versions that were speeded up dramatically, but soon they composed their own songs. Developping more and more towards sugar-sweet speed punk pop core with "Yummy" as their masterpiece. On the two following albums, they mixed some metalesque elements into their music and reduced the influence of their drinking and farting stories, but still recorded some typical Hard-Ons-style songs.

In the meantime, Ray and Blackie have put together a new band called "Nunchukka Superfly" that sounds not quite like the Hard-Ons. Keish had a band called "Snorkel". Because of identical bandnames, the name of "Snorkel" was changed to "Malibu Stacey", but meanwhile "Malibu Stacey" broke up (Malibu Stacey is the name of a Barbie-doll in one Simpsons episode that represents everything Lisa has to fight against). Blackie put out a record in '99 with Chris Townend under the name "Chrackie".

In mid '98, the Hard-Ons threesome found together again and they started playing. In autumn '98, they recorded four songs with Ed Kuepper (ex-Saints, now not less than Australian all-time god of music called "Ed Kuepper"), that can be found on new singles. April to June '99 saw the Hard-Ons touring in Australia and Europe and releasing several small and one big records.

In the year '00, the Hard-Ons played a few shows down under and recorded a new album in June. The '99er "Best of" album was released in Argentina with a new cover and in autumn '00, the new album This terrible Place was released in Australia, accompanied by some shows. In February '01, the album was released on the Swedish label Bad Taste Records for Europe and maybe the rest of the world. The Hard-Ons will be touring Europe from mid-April to early-June (see below for dates)
