The Fadeaways (Japan)

Prepare to be swept off your feet as Japan's high-octane garage rock sensation, THE FADEAWAYS, crash onto Australian shores for their explosive debut tour. 

In January 2024, The Fadeaways hosted KIM SALMON’S SMOKED SALMON on a wild ride through Japan’s punk rock clubs and sake bars. And now Kim Salmon returns the favour, co-headlining with The Fadeaways for some exclusive Victorian shows which are sure to blow the roof off.
Since their inception in Tokyo in 2005, THE FADEAWAYS have orchestrated a garage punk rock revolution, deeply infused with the raw energy of '60s garage punk and '70s punk trash. The Fadeaways are more than a band; they're a spectacle of high energy, garage, pop, and punk
music brilliance, delivering an unforgettable adrenaline-fueled experience every time they take the stage. 
KIM SALMON has played in many ensembles - the Scientists, the Surrealists, Beasts of Bourbon and Antenna to name a few. Until now, he has never had a band that focuses just on the ‘hits’, the ‘shit’, the ‘all killer no filler’ out and out ‘pop’ stuff. Finally, he has assembled a band for just this purpose - Smoked Salmon! Your ‘one stop fish shop’ if you will. Frantic Romantic, Swampland, Cool Fire, Come On Spring, Drop Out and Last Night all rub shoulders with his newer purpose written ‘melodically inclined’ material for your listening pleasure! The band coalesce the Smoked Salmon-esque threads from across Kim Salmon’s sprawling career. Poppy, but rockin. Literate, but primitive. Melodic, but messy. Kim Salmon’s Smoked Salmon will have you swingin from the rafters, crawlin in the gutter and dancing in the street!
Kim Salmon’s Smoked Salmon and The Fadeaways together again. You’ve been warned…
Also joining this show will be Melbourne's legendary Japanese punk rock trio Mach Pelican who have reemerged after fifteen years of silence. Far from fading, they still deliver a rapid back beat reminiscent of the Ramones and the Eastern Dark. Prepare for an intense live performance!
