In the lead up to the Rock 4 Renewables gig at the Gasometer, we wanted to get everyone exciting by profiling some amazing artists that we have the privilege of hosting. Today’s bands are Danny Walsh Banned and Nun of the Tongue.

What has your band been up to lately, any tours, notable gigs or record releases?
We spent a day in the studio recently with a box of fortune cookies and tracked around a dozen songs, so standby for our 2nd album in the Year of the Sheep. Had the mightiest of times at our Labour in Vain gig the other week too.
Why do you support renewable energy?
We love electricity, it makes Will’s guitar loud and his notes so beautifully sustained. We also love the environment and demand action on climate change, so we need more electricity produced from clean green resources and less from polluting old fossil fuels. Renewable resources are endlessly hanging around for nix anyway and just messing up Johnny’s curls or beating down on Weed’s hat, so we might was well harness them to power our amps! In fact we were thinking of installing solar panels on Weed’s hat for the gig…
There’s an election coming up in Victoria, do you have a message for Victorian politicians on renewable energy and climate change?
Take responsibility and show leadership on climate change action and provide clear support for renewable energy. Renewable energy provides jobs and income and rural areas and reduces power prices. This has been shown in South Australia who are really leading the way, where for example in this July, nearly half of the state’s electricity demand came from renewable sources such as wind and solar, a record up there with some of the leading countries in renewables. C’mon Victoria!
If your band was a renewable energy source, what would it be and why? (solar power, wind, wave, )
Solar power – we bring out the fans, we make you drip with sweat, and we’re a good source of VITAMIN D!

2nd Band: Nun of the Tongue 
Band name: Nun of the Tongue
 
Name and instrument: Oscar (guitar, vocals)
In three words, how would you describe your band? Lo-fi, trashy fun
What has your band been up to lately, any tours, notable gigs or record releases? We just launched our debut 4 track 7 inch EP last month at Bar Open titled ‘Burger Porn Real Estate’
 
Why do you support renewable energy? Electricity is one of the most important aspects of modern day life. I feel like finding a self-sustainable energy source is one of the most important tasks as a species.
 
There’s an election coming up in Victoria, do you have a message for Victorian politicians on renewable energy and climate change? It would just be to look at the facts and decide through that. Creating a renewable energy infrastructure would create jobs and cut c02 emissions. It’s all about what the science says.
 
If your band was a renewable energy source, what would it be and why? (solar power, wind, wave, ) WIND POWAH! from our butts onto Tony Abbott’s face.
