The Accelerators are a self described skunkabilly band from Perth, Western Australia, fusing the boots and braces aesthetic of two tone ska with bad tempered punk and rockabilly.
The Accelerators where born out of the remains of an earlier Perth band, "Scrimshaw Raw", a Fremantle band that combined punk, ska and rockabilly in a format that proved popular around the Perth music scene.
When the band parted ways early 2010, guitarist and singer John 'Johnny G' Gambie (formerly of Sinope, Mardi Piccaso & King Wasabi) enlisted the talents of Shayne O'Neill (formerly of Fuzz Bucket, Robotnik & The Spock Fonzies) on organ to create an evolution of the format more reminiscent of the two-tone ska genre, but retaining the punk snarl of Scrimshaw Raw.
The band proved to be an instant hit amongst the punk scene, becoming a regular fixture in the '299' gigs, and generating a loyal following amongst the ska loving 'trad skin' and punk scenes. They have since expanded their following, with gigs at major venues in Perth, Fremantle and on tour in the Southwest, receiving airplay in Australia, the US, UK and Indonesia.
The bands trademark style combines muscular guitar driven punk/ska sounds, with swirling organ lines, and hard driven rhythm from Robbie "The Robot" Rodriguez, The Accelerators violently crazed robot drummer.
