Urban Guerillas Grace Emily 17th May 2018

The Urban Guerillas were formed in Adelaide in 1980 by guitarist / singer / songwriter Ken Stewart with Terry Burgan on bass and vocals John Martin on drums. Terry and John had recently moved to Adelaide from Whyalla. After playing their relentless, driving brand of original pop / punk rock music around Adelaide for a little over two years and releasing two independent cassettes, the band moved to Sydney and seamlessly slotted into the live pub circuit. They played their first commercial gig at the Tivoli in Adelaide on 28th January 1981 supporting the Beat Detectives.
