Next up in our series of The Bands Of Gonerfest is Cool Runnings. A little background from Goner Records….Cool Runnings (Auckland, New Zealand)
Frantic Kiwi punks set to ignite Gonerfest’s Saturday Afternoon Blowout!
Built from the weakest links of every seminal Auckland band of the
last 10 years, Cool Runnings are four dudes just trying to get by.
Fuzzed up and stupid hits from the bong.”
COOL RUNNINGS features members of Diamonds and Dirt, Heidi Pasadena, Raw Nerves and Perfect Hair Forever.
Appearing: Saturday Afternoon for full schedule…
Gonerfest Eleven, Schedule, SEpt 25-28
from my point of view, these dudes rock! A whole lot on the punk side, all kinds of fun going on, Cool Runnings play it loud and fast and HARD, they sound like they are a Goner Band, so I suppose it makes a whole lot of sense that they are playing at Gonerfest. No better way to start your weekend than by listening to Cool Runnings , great stuff…
