Final Gambit are a three-piece punk rock band from Sydney consisting of vocalist / guitarist Nick Burgmann, bassist Lauren Dawson, and drummer Aleksi Monaghan.
Since regrouping in July, the band have wasted no time in delivering their follow up single, “You Sold Our City”. And boy, do they not hold back on their criticisms of the NSW State Government regarding lockout laws, nanny state policing, and the promotion of gambling in Sydney. Frontman, Nick Burgmann, has channeled all his frustrations on the current state of Sydney very bluntly in his lyrics; “You sold our soul to a gambling game”.
“You Sold Our City was a song I wrote to vent my frustrations with the Government of NSW. Their well-documented curfew for profit has irreparably damaged Sydney’s now struggling nightlife. All done to feed the excluded casino foot traffic and secure prime real estate in Kings Cross.
It otherwise never would have happened. The power of a noise complaint and the blatant fire sale of Sydney’s culture have me angry and frustrated. But like anything you can complain online or actually do something about it, so I chose to join the conversation.”
