Perth is home to many great upcoming and established bands of all genres and one we’ve held close ties with for a few years now is Ragdoll who have been working on some new material to follow up their Back to Zero album from 2016 (our review here).
If you haven’t come across the guys you, you obviously missed some pretty good gigs this year and have just emerged from that rock you’ve been living under, luckily guitarist Leon Todorovich has joined us to tell us what he thought of the year with our Wall of Sound 2018 Year In Review…

BEST MUSIC VIDEO OF 2018?
Alien Weaponry – ‘Kai Tangata‘. Epic on all fronts.
BEST GIG YOU’VE SEEN 2018?
The Scorpions at Perth Arena; I’m convinced Rudy Schenker has discovered the fountain of youth because the dude is 70 and performs like he’s 17.
BEST SHOW YOUR BAND PLAYED THIS YEAR?
Bonfest 2018 with Rose Tattoo; big crowd, great response and most importantly it was LOUD.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO IN 2019?
On a personal level, getting new Ragdoll music out into the wild in 2019 has me pumped. I can’t wait to hear the next Chaos Divine album, should it come out in 2019, as well as hearing the West Coast Eagles theme song on AFL grand final day again.
