A brief history
The Love Junkies were formed in 2000 when singer and drummer team, Rox Clayton Scott and Marcus Bishop partnered up with Silent Prayers guitarist Dave Patrick and Speakeasy bass player, Nathan Dawe. Combined with a small brass section the band went on to play a number of successful function gigs. In 2001, the band landed a residency at Studio 41 in Canterbury.
At that time Chris Wong joined the band on guitar to fulfil the club gigs as a trio. As the function gigs came piling in, Dave joined up for the residency, Chris moved to Bass guitar and the established classic 4 piece line-up of the band was set. 2002 was the year it all took off. Since then the band have been playing constantly, with gigs more or less every weekend, moreso during the summer months.
The mission was always the strong and overwhelming desire to get out there and play good classic music, soulfully, authentically and without the theatricals (i.e. no makeup, wigs, hairy chests, medallions and bs).
