Sticky Origins 
Some bands meet from lame shit like gumtree advertisements, while others are formed with a touch of the divine. One Summers night some years ago, on a drunken street in Newtown. Dylan Frost was wrapping up a fruitless nights busking. Paddy walked past, when a by-standing bouncer commanded he, “give the bloke some coin, brew!?”

Instead, Paddy and Dyz struck up a chat. Bonding over mutual hobbies like music and weed (the basis of every substantial friendship). Soon, associate degenerates Hollywood, Crabz and Beaker banded together, and STIFI was erected

 Finger On  
The Record Debut album, Caress Your Soul, dropped in March 2013, with multiple charting singles and 2 songs placing on Triple J’s Hottest 100. The album went into the top 20 in Australia and stayed in the top 50 for 3 weeks. Three singles went onto high rotation on national Australian radio. "Caress Your Soul"; peaked at #17 on the ARIA single charts.

 The album tour was no doubt selling like hot cakes. STIFI sold out every venue that ‘Straya could throw atthem, then they boarded a plane to give Europe the Finger. Europe Tour in May of 2013 saw the boys playing in a total of 32 dates (in 40 days) in Holland, UK and France. This included live radio performances with 3FM in Holland and RTL2 in Paris

A year later… 2 SOLD OUT Australian Tours and 2 European Tours have came and went and Sticky Fingers drops their second album ‘Land of Pleasure’ with a bang. The album debuted at #3 on the iTunes Charts in its first week of release and was Triple J’s Album of the Week. 3 songs from ‘Land of Pleasure’ made it into Triple J’s Hottest 100 this year, with ‘Gold Snafu’ placing at #20. With a plethora of international shows already on the calendar for 2015, the boys are ready to give the Finger to the rest of the world. 

The Sticky Finger Taste STIFI is a melting pot of reggae, psych, pop and bourbon. Hypnotising you into a swaying trance, then punching you in the face for dancing like a hippy. Their borderline contradictory fusion of flavours speaks to every walk of life, and it’s this multiplicity which makes the world their oyster.

For the comparison minded: If the Clash, Pink Floyd and Arctic Monkeys are three beads of sweat that meet rolling down your back, Sticky Fingers are there licking it up.
