Vintage Crop (australia)
Formed in 2016, Vintage Crop are the latest export from Australia’s punk & garage rock capital; Geelong. The town has spawned Ausmuteants, The Frowning Clouds & The Living Eyes before them, with each of those bands (and their offshoots) taking turns in moulding Vintage Crop’s sound. Vintage Crop in their short tenure have released music through Australia’s premier DIY label Anti-Fade Records & played alongside the likes of Hank Wood & The Hammerheads, Ausmuteants & NOTS.
Having released 2 albums in 2 years, Vintage Crop have dialled in their sound for their latest release; Company Man. Company Man is 4 tracks of brash, sarcastic punk - full of sharp guitars and unsteady riffs. Released in Australia through Anti-Fade Records and the UK through Drunken Sailor, the 4-track EP is an ode to the suit & tie lifestyle.
