Full Flower Moon Band are a rock band in Brisbane, Australia.
Frontwoman persona ‘Babyshakes Dillon’, walks in many shoes, from snakeskin boots to stilettos. This alter ego can act as a convenient buffer between the songwriter and their words, particularly when they’re bowing at the altar of excess.
Full Flower Moon Band was so named to suggest a project that is expansive and fully open to possibility, but their latest album Diesel Forever mixed by ARIA award-winner Michael Badger, is the first album with a permanent band, bringing the grind, groove and grit: Luke Hanson on drums; Caleb Widener and Christian Driscoll on guitars; and Marli Smales on bass.
Alternately deadpan, bravado-fuelled, sinister and coaxing. The band explores themes of hedonism and burn-out. “I’m inspired and disturbed by the rock myth,” Dillon says, “but I’m speaking with a bit of tongue-in-cheek.”
