Rubber Records indicates: “Before beards besmirched rock, Melbourne trio The Casanovas dispatched it with such vigour that Britain’ s NME crowned them “Like Jet on Viagra… only better”.
Formed in 1999 by frontman/guitarist Tommy Boyce, a passion for Stiv Bators, Paul Stanley, and everything in between. Nine weeks in Europe and the USA with The Datsuns followed by a stint at SXSW in Texas. Debut The Casanovas (2004) hitched them to national tours with Motorhead and The Darkness, while All Night Long (2006) paired them with The Black Crowes, Airbourne and Redd Kross.
Come 2007, familial responsibilities and Tommy’ s completion of an architectural degree imposed a hiatus. All the while, the trio wrote and played intermittently. But 2013’ s rapturous performance at (Powder Monkeys bassist) Tim Hemensley‘s 10th anniversary gig spurred Boyce, bassist Damian “Damo” Campbell and drummer Jordan “Jaws” Stanley to forge album three.
Retaining the core of their visceral, riff driven sound, Terra Casanova’s exploration of rock fused with pop elements, elevated by their maturity as a band, marks it their most varied release yet. “We didn’ t have something that represents us as well as this one does,” says Tommy. “It’ s what we love without compromise.””
