9 Things You Didn't Know About Dorsal Fins

9 Things You Didn't Know About Dorsal Fins

About to hit the road on their Digital Zodiac album tour.

Melbourne nine-piece Dorsal Fins are gearing up to head out on their Digital Zodiac album tour, traversing around the country over March 2017, and to mark the occasion trumpet player/bandleader Liam McGorry (also in Saskwatch), sent us nine things you probably didn't know about the group. And we're sure glad he did, because this is one glorious list. Give the album a spin while you check 'em out below, and check those tour dates down the bottom, including a couple over in the west at Babushka on April 1 and Mojos April 2.

9 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT DORSAL FINS:

1. Robert had a short spell as an actor on Neighbours. His acting career was cut short after he was fired for getting in to an altercation with Harold at the Christmas party.

2. Ross has an irrational fear of balloons.

3. Dorsal Fins Favourite Dog Types are as follows:

Ella: Yorkshire Terrier
Richard: Staffy x Ridgeback
Jarrad: Greyhound
Olaf: Kitten
Lachlan: King Charles
Rob: Beagle
Liam: Cocker Spaniel
Ross: Border Collie
Sam: Chocolate Brown Labrador

4. Recorded a 7” tribute to Wings called Fins At The Speed Of Sound… out now:

5. Lachlan and Ross play in a band devoted to covering theme songs from all your favourite TV shows, movies, ads an video games. They’re called Theme Team.

6. Dorsal Fins actually have five bass players in the band.

7. The name Dorsal Fins was coined by friend/solo artist/legend Jim Lawrie.

8. The band was actually featured on Neighbours on Episode 7469. Mind Renovation, the record, was given as a gift to Piper for her birthday, and there’s a slow dance to Monday Tuesday at the end of the episode. Apparently we played the Erinsborough High School Formal too…

9. Dorsal Fins are making their first ever trip West, playing Babushka in Leederville Sat April 1 & Mojo’s in Fremantle Sun April 2.
