London-based band formed from members of The Diodes and The Barracudas 5. Hair metal rockband USA California 1988 -1993 http://www.myspace.com/highnoonrocks 1) On a hot July day in 1989, three guys got together in an even hotter Austin garage with a string bass, Martin guitar and Telecaster to play some music. As if guided by some sacred keeper of the Rockabilly flame, they proceeded to play the whole 'Elvis SUN Sessions', in order, with uncanny precision and fervor. That fateful day, HIGH NOON was born. And HIGH NOON will always be Sean Mencher, Kevin Smith and Shaun Young.
The trio has come a long way since that first garage get-together. Voted the best Rockabilly band for seven ( ! ) years in a row in Austin, TX, the trio has performed in venues as diverse as a youth center in St. Petersburg, Russia ( July 1993 ); a nightclub in the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa ( October 1993 ), all over the USA ( early 1995 ), Scandinavia ( mid 1995 ) and Central Europe ( late 1995 ); even 'Carnegie Hall' in New York City ( April 1994 ) with Ronnie Dawson. Legendary in his mastery of string bass, Kevin Smith provides the rock-solid foundation of HIGH NOON. Sean Mencher lays down the hot licks with a finger pickin' flare on his Gibson or Telecaster; along with Shaun Young, who belts out each song from the heart, he writes many of the songs that make up HIGH NOON's expansive repertoire.
2) 'HIGH NOON' are a two piece Hip-Hop act hailing from the south Sydney and a vital element of Sydneys newest collective 'Mothership'.The pair (Semantic & Prolifik The Gifted) bring that raw and traditional 90's style Boom-Bap to the table, always paying homage to that 90's throwback sound. In 2012 the pair head back into the studio to work on their 3rd release 'Boom In Your Room- Volume 2' 3) An old-style drum group who create original works based on the traditional chants of their ancestors of the Northern Plains.
