Also from The DomNicks:    Various   Associated:    Dom Mariani (Solo): Various   DM3:  Various   DomNicks: Various   Majestic Kelp::    Various   Stems: Various
The DomNicks combine the Perth garage rock/ power pop legend Dom Mariani (The Stems, DM3, Someloves), with the British punk attack of Nick Shepherd (The Clash, The Cortinas).

Formed in 2007 the band was a meeting of musical minds for Dom and Nick who teamed up with Howard Shawcross vintage bass man (The Elks, The Jackals, Dave Warner) and Marz Frisina drummer around town (DM3, The Calhoons, New Egyptian Kings).

This hang loose combo plays a mix of Dom and Nick originals with a nice spread of 60's and 70's garage soul classics. One part Memphis stew, one part Stones and Faces inspired and one part Aussie garage guitar rock this band of seasoned players punches well above its collective musical weight.

Now in 2009 they are ready to release the mini album Hey Rock 'N' Roller the band's first assault on CD through Off The Hip Records. Consisting of 5 Nick and 2 Dom penned tracks Hey Rock 'N' Roller was recorded over the space of ten months and was mixed by the formidable duo of Rob Younger and Wayne Connolly (producer of You Am I and The Vines).

There are rockers that swagger with a Sticky Fingers atmosphere and there is a down home soul groove in Hey Fellas that channels Bobby Womack. The band's lean and mean four piece sound is enhanced by brass and keyboards on some tracks to full effect.
