The Cigarettes played a tight repertoire amongst a coastal backdrop drawing influences from mid 70‘s New York bands, theatrical overtones, the candor of Lou Reed and the sharpness of Elvis Costello.
We performed shows at Deakin University and Geelong hotels. Throughout the summer of ‘76-’77 the band loved the idea of creating its own coastal tour. We organised, financed and promoted this series of dates throughout Victorian West Coastal surfing towns playing at hotels, events and community halls
