the silver dragons

Born from a necessity to combine a succulent Chinese meal with swampy garage rock’n’roll, The Silver Dragons (named after a retro Chinese restaurant in Umina on NSW Central Coast) formed at The Link & Pin café in Woy Woy after singer, Anton Hughes, was asked to support Sydney alt-country star Adam Young.

Over a year of gigging the band has morphed into a garage/guitar-pop/fuzz/rock band and has just issued its debut recordings as a digital four-song EP.

“Coming from the combined heritage of the members this comes as no surprise,” Anton says. “Think Gun Club meets Big Star via The Clash and Johnny Thunders with a tinge of garage-sleaze.”
