BABY ANIMALS: One Word 2017

Can you believe it’s been 25 years since rock goddess Suze DeMarchi came strutting into our lives, groaning “one word, one letter, one line, and I’d feel a whole lot better”?

Well, it has.  And to celebrate this milestone, iconic Aussie rockers baby Animals are touring Australia in early 2017, with a stop at our very own Gold Coast!

The band, fronted by the enigmatic Suze DeMarchi, alongside guitar legend Dave Leslie, bassist Dario Bortolin and drummer Mick Skelton, is a force to be reckoned with – time has not diminished the immense respect this powerhouse four-piece commands.

Reflecting on what is now one of the most popular songs in their live set, and a track so synonymous with the band, Suze and Dave shared their thoughts on the song that they’re now very happy to pay homage to!

“One Word was my least favourite song on the album and I begged the label to not even put it on the record!! I remember when Dave was recording the intro guitar part how frustrated he was but he ‘played it till his fingers bled’ and it really made the whole track come alive. Now, I love looking over at Dave’s face whenever we start this song and have a private giggle in memory of that day and grateful that, once again, the label didn’t listen to me! It went on to become one of the most memorable and successful BA tracks ever and I love playing it,” said Suze DeMarchi.

Rock fans, strap yourself in to celebrate 25 years of One Word with Suze, Dave, Dario and Mick – an experience not to be missed!

Baby Animals ‘One Word’ 2017 tour Presented by Tone Deaf comes to Twin Towns on 18 March.
