Angry Proclaims The Tatts Still On! 09/04/99
Great news...read on!!!
"Any suggestion from any source that Rose Tattoo are no more or are about to be
no more is absolute f..king bullshit!" bellows Angry Anderson. "The heart beat
of this band, the fire in this dragon couldn't be extinguished even if we
wanted to. And hosing down the flames is the last thing we want to do! Besides
given the highly emotional, no, heart rendering reception we got in Germany and
the almost embarassingly strong press that's been filtering through over recent
weeks about the shows we'd be bloody mad to pull the plug on things! The Tatts
are looking to the future on both a recording, touring and spiritual level. In
future the source and authority for all information on the band will be the
band itself. As it should. Stay young, grow strong."
And in a similar vein...
Disregard any information about Rose Tattoo from so-called management.
Rose Tattoo is it's own management and is the only authentic source of any
and all information regarding the band. The band reunion is holding strong.
Very positive plans are being made - authentic information to follow.
Disregard any information not from the source, i.e. Rose Tattoo.
Yours in Rock 'n' Roll
Angry Anderson + Rose Tattoo.
Rose Tattoo reunion comes to an end. 09/04/99
Well it's time to drink
I don't want to think about sorrow
Be one of the boys and make some noise
There's still tomorrow...
An official announcement has come down from Rose Tattoo management that the
Rose Tattoo reunion has come to an end. The Tatts performed brilliantly
in Germany and were a big hit, but unfortunately, Angry has decided
to continue his career with the Party Boys and the Giants. Pete & Mick
are expected to continue their own projects both in Australia and Germany.
Stay tuned for more details, including (hopefully) comments from the Tatts
themselves on the breakup.

Official Tour Announcement & Dates!!! 05/19/99
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROCK THOSE BLUES WITH ROSE TATTOO
Achtung Rock'n'roll Outlaws! The bad boys of rock, Rose Tattoo are heading
your way. The Tatts will be touring Australia in June prior to jetting off
to Europe. This tour sees Geordie Leach returning to the Rose Tattoo fold of
Angry Anderson, Pete Wells, Mick Cocks and Paul Demarco. Geordie replaces
bassplayer Ian Rilen who performed on last year's national "All Hell Breaks
Loose" tour. Sydneysiders will still get the chance to see Ian when his own
classic band "X" supports Rose Tattoo at the Metro.
After a short warm up run blasting Australian ears, Rose Tattoo will turn
their speakers towards Germany. There they'll be performing at the premier
outdoor festivals with Germany's most successful band Böhse Unkelz with guests
such as Danzig and other international rock icons. The shows include Mannheim,
Dortmund and Berlin and for a finale the Tatts will be special guests for German
Bike Week, Europe's largest bike rally and bike show. Obviously, since reforming
a year ago Rose Tattoo is slowly rebuilding its international following. Germany
is the first big step. Others will follow.
"We've got a strong following in Germany, news filtered over there that we'd
reformed, when a German promoter approached us to co-headline at the summer
festivals how could we refuse!". explains lead singer Angry Anderson.
Take some time out this June to cure those winter blues with the intensity of
the hard rocking Rose Tattoo remedy.

Pete Wells Band - New Album!!! 05/09/99
Finally got my copy of the new Pete Wells band cd "It's All Fun & Games 'Till
Somebody Gets Hurt". It's a fantastic collection of new songs and covers, with
the Wells band sounding better than ever, spitting out a blues/rock grind
that'll peel the paint off your walls! The icing on the cake, so to speak, are
the bonus live tracks featuring Mick Cocks on guitar. This cd is available at
Greg's Music World, whom I highly recommend as a source for Australian music
of all types. Buy it!
Tatts in the Studio, Angry & the Angels!!! 02/21/99

500 Grand Prix April 11th. Get the latest info on this at The Angels web page.

of Warner promotions chief Steve Hands, who is battling cancer.
Best Wishes Steve!!!
