Bananagun | Future Yard

We’re delighted to be hosting Melbourne-based groovesters Bananagun, off the back of their incredible debut LP The True Story Of Bananagun (Full Time Hobby), which mixes exotica, Afrobeat and proto-garage notes seamlessly.

*This show has been rescheduled to Saturday 5th February 2022. All original tickets remain valid for the new date.

There’s a deeply percussive element to the band’s psychedelic ode to mother nature, touching upon Fela Kuti-esque repetitions, Os Muntates and The Monks songwriting, exotica, jazz and 1960s pop-rock. Much like a lot of the influences it filters into its own unique spin on it all, it’s intended as “music for the people” – a unifying groove that spans genres. Even the seemingly innocuous band name has an underlying message of connectivity that matches the universality of the music. “It’s like non-violent combat! Or the guy who does a stick up but it’s just a banana, not a gun, and he tells the authorities not to take themselves too seriously.” This extends to the underlying message of their debut album The True Story Of Bananagun, released in June.
