Bitzer - Sunshine

Bitzer - Sunshine
Bitzer, the band with an ‘impeccable Oz rock pedigree’ (Alt Media) dropped into Damien Gerard Studios recently to record new versions of two songs from classic Australasian bands. Drum Media calls Bitzer ‘a supergroup comprised of several champions of the Golden Era of Australian Rock’.

'Sunshine' was the title track of Dragon's 1977 album, the first made by the group after relocating from New Zealand to Sydney. Bitzer's reboot is an elegant pop ballad featuring Steve Mulry on lead vocal and Steve Edmonds on lead guitar. Backing harmonies are by Mick O'Shea (who played drums in Dragon) and Lucy Desoto.

The band also recorded a blistering version of 'Run For The Shelter', a lesser known Angels rocker from their 1985 album, 'Two Minute Warning'. Steve Mulry roars on lead vocal again, and the track also showcases Mick Arnold's slide guitar work and the thumping rhythm section of Steve King and Mick O'Shea.

‘Bitzer’s versions of these songs are even stronger and more spirited than the originals’ (Alt Media).

About this track...

This classic Dragon tune, re-worked by supergroup ‘Bitzer’, needs no introduction. An authentic rendition that captures the spirit and feel of the original and brings back great memories of a great band.
