Push Push

Bio

Push Push was a glam metal rock band of the 1990's from Auckland. They were best known for their single Trippin'.

The band released their debut album A Trillion Shades of Happy in 1992. Their first single Trippin' was recorded at Airforce Studios (Auckland), with the drum track for done in one take. The song went to #1 in New Zealand. The bonus track I Love My Leather Jacket was recorded at The Lab. Backing vocals on the track Dig My World were provided by Jan Hellriegel.

The band opened for AC/DC at Mount Smart Stadium in 1992. Apparently the band drew straws to see who was going to walk onstage first as there were around 50,000 people in the crowd so they were all pretty nervous (Scott Cortese the drummer drew the short straw). Their set ended prematurely however because a fire started under the stage and Mikey Havoc announced this to the crowd which the promoters didn't like. They also blew up the speaker system so AC/DC weren't able to play as loudly as they normally did.

The band performed this on the first Hey Hey It's Saturday (Australian entertainment) show broadcast in New Zealand. Song 27 and What My Baby Likes were further New Zealand Top 10 hits for the band, although neither charted in Australia.

In 1991 Push Push was awarded the top band award and best video award for Trippin' at the RIANZ awards.

Mikey Havoc (vocals)
