GANGgajang Release More New Music ‘Not Waiting Around’ #VIDEO

GANGgajang has released more new music with the song ‘Not Waiting Around’.

GANGgajang filmed the video for ‘Not Waiting Around’ at The Basement in Sydney during their Circles In The Sand tour. Phil Evans, who also worked on the ‘Circles’ video at Uluru directed.

In 2015 the four surviving original members of GANGgajang, Mark ‘Cal’ Callaghan, Graham ‘Buzz’ Bidstrup, Geoff Stapleton and Robbie James, along with bassist Peter Willersdorf, returned to the studio for the first time since the passing of original member, bass player, Chris Bailey in 2013. The result was ‘Circles In The Sand’.

GANGgajang formed in 1984 when members of The Angels (Buzz Bidstrup and Chris Bailey) and The Riptides (Mark Callaghan) worked together on the music for the ABC-TV show ‘Sweet and Sour’. The three joined forces with Geoff Stapleton (The Aliens) and GANGgajang was formed.

The first single was the demo of ‘Gimme Some Lovin’. Despite its raw form it made its way to radio playlists and soon became a hit song in Australia.

GANGgajang set to work on a debut album. ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Sounds of Then’ came from those sessions.

The debut self-titled ‘GANGgajang’ album was recently remastered and reissued. The two new songs ‘Circles In The Sand’ and ‘Not Waiting Around’ have been added as bonus tracks to this release.

GANGgajang is planning to return to the studio to finish recording the remaining tracks for a new album which was due to be completed this year but is now looking to be released in 2017.
