Another night at Diceys but this was no normal gig it was something special! it was Topnovil’s 20 year anniversary. That’s right Wollongong’s very own punk rock legends have been playing cool as hell, good old fashioned punk rock for 20 bloody years!!! In that time they have released 9 albums, toured the east coast 100’s of times and toured Europe and Tokyo several times.
To celebrate, they played a whole bunch of their old songs including their first ever release Keen As A Mule , and even some new ones . Wow it was one hell of a good night, with a big turn out and some amazing supports like Panik, 3 young lads playing punk songs with some metal finger picking riffs killer.. and Postmentalist bringing their own take on alternative rock.
