The Cockroaches will also play a few shows in Sydney to support the release.
“We grew up playing in the pubs and clubs of Australia” said Anthony Field. His brother Paul added, “We were lucky to have had success in the 1980’s, we were played on radio, performed on TV shows like Countdown and Hey, Hey It’s Saturday and had so much fun.” Guitarist and songwriter John Field says, “We don’t know if we’ll ever do this again. Anthony is always away on tour and Jeff just turned 60!”.
The big question however is ‘can Jeff stay awake for some shows? ”And I promise I’ll stay awake for this one” Jeff insists.
