The Ronson Hangup were formed when brothers Steve and Mal Pinkerton from The Anyones teamed up with Ash Naylor (Even), Luke Thomas (The Pictures) and Dave Mudie (Canon) out of a shared admiration for Mick Ronson the legendary guitarist from David Bowies band The Spiders From Mars.
Named as “one of the top 10 Melbourne bands to look out for” by The Age EG they were described thus: “a gang of Melbourne riff-rock recidivists with resumes as long, tangled and dazzling as that guitar solo on Moonage Daydream. Their starry-eyed debut album is all fireworks and soaring transistor radio hooks with landslides of vocal harmony”
EG’s Jo Roberts wrote about the debut album on Jan 30 09: “as accomplished and as clever pop music as you’d suspect from such a pedigree. The musical lineage of the Ronson Hangup goes straight back to the ilk of Badfinger, the Kinks, Beatles, Raspberries, even ELO. It’s riff-rich, harmony-laden heaven”
