Western Australian McCann had been a member of Sydney garage-rockers HARPOON before returning to Perth to hook up with Gareth Liddiard in the fledgling DRONES. Eventually ending up in Melbourne, he eventually formed the New Vindictives, along the way finding time to collaborate with the likes of Spencer P Jones and Brian Hooper (BEASTS OF BORBON), Damo Suzuki (CAN), Ray Ahn and Peter Black (HARD-ONS) and more.
The latest album from the New Vindictives, Gotta Lott Move - BOOM!, which features the latest single 'Sheena Says', has just been released on vinyl through Beast Records and on CD - with three extra tracks! - through Off The Hip.
The band - featuring Tim Deane (guitar), Chris Taranto (bass) and Jackson Kite (drums) will be playing dates in France and Spain throughout October. See below....
