Rudely Interrupted Rock ‘n’ Roll Past Autism, Blindness, Deafness, and Down Syndrome at the Iron Horse on Sunday, June 13th at 7PM

Rudely Interrupted is one of Australia’s truly unique independent rock acts. Based in Melbourne, 5 out of the 6 members share a range of both physical and intellectual disabilities (blindness, deafness, aspergers, autism and Down Syndrome) but most importantly, a common interest in self-expression through music. “We’re here to challenge people’s thoughts on disability,” says Rory Burnside the band’s lead singer who was born without eyes and has aspergers.

The band’s achievements are extraordinary. The “Rudies” have enthralled worldwide audiences with infectious indie pop/rock since their first live performance at the East Brunswick Club in May 2007. They’ve toured Australia’s Laneway Music festival, played alongside artists including Feist and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and wowed audiences from New York to London. This summer they embark on a North American east coast tour that brings them to Northampton’s Iron Horse on Sunday June 13th at 7PM.



“… their music is some of the most energetic and genuine to emerge from the Australian rock & roll underground in recent times”Time Out Magazine

“this Melbourne group – with a taut, impassioned sound somewhere between the Killers and Wire – happens to be the real deal.” – The Village Voice

“If you've never heard them before expect some extremely well-crafted music by a bunch of guys who happen to be saddled with slightly wonky sets of genes” – Vice Magazine
