RHINOS are a post punk garage rock DUO from Belfast.
RHINOS are PAUL CURRIE on Guitar & Vocals and PADDY JOHNSTON on Drums & Percussion. RHINOS is a new project for these two stalwarts of the Belfast music scene. Both members have been in and formed many bands in Belfast since the mid-90’s, playing alongside the likes of FUGAZI, ASH, DOA, ALICE DONUT, NOMEANSNO, THE OHSEES, to name but a few.
RHINOS follow a raw punk garage rock ethic, no pedals or digital effects are used in their sound, they treat their music as sculptural - using the most basic analogue instruments to mould and create complex yet simplistic songs & iconic ear worm riffs. Their debut EP uses a post-punk sound mixed with classic blues and rock n roll motifs to form a fresh new fusion of music that kicks ass and also kicks against the patriarchy and the toxic system.
