Cowboy Bob’s “Security City” Playlist of Australian Punk Rock

Hailing from the majestic town of Yeppoon, “Cowboy” Bob Lee is a legend of Brisbane rock and roll. With a rock rap sheet that includes starring roles in such enigmatic acts as “They Might Be Vaginas,” “The Vaginabillies” and his recent solo effort “Cowboy Bob’s War on Terror,” today he shares with us: “A playlist of the limited Australian punk rock and roll on the Spotify. Most of the best stuff is on 7″s and hasn’t made it to the digital world. The Saints and X are the greatest Australian bands and yours isn’t.” Listen on Spotify.

Named for The Saints’ excellent song about Brisbane, mangoes and fucking the police, “Security City” – a song that boasts lines like “Thirteen hot nights in a row/ The cops drive past and they move slow/ A million people staying low/ With mangoes ripe, who needs to grow?” – is a sick garage rock soundtrack to disgustingly humid nights in the City of Brisbane, with bands hailing from all around our fine sunburned land. May you marvel at Bob’s magic selection, and if you care to – meet the man himself in the video above. Watch on YouTube.
