GORILLA is an English band from Hastings, founded in 1998 by John Redfern, Sarah Russel and Billy Darlington. Influenced by Budgie, Blue Cheer, Grand Funk, MC5, the band plays a rough street punk Motorhead/Pink Fairies/Crushed Butler attitude and style with an authentic vintage feel and sound. Capturing the essence of the classic era of 60's/70's rock without sounding cliched is ridiculously hard, if not an impossible self imposed task, but Gorilla have achieved exactly that. They have performed with Fu Manchu, OJM, Blue Cheer, Josiah, Brant Bjork & The Bros, Orange Goblin, The Heads, Colour Haze, Hawkwind and many others.
