The Proton Energy Pills

The Proton Energy Pills formed in high school in Wollongong, Australia, and are considered a seminal and influential group.


Members of The Protons went on to play in many successful Australian bands over the next 25 years. Dave Curley, Lenny Curley, Jay Curley, Stewy Leadfinger Cunningham, and Richie Lewis between them played in bands like Brother Brick, Zambian Goat Herders, Tumbleweed, Leadfinger, Asteroid B-612, Challenger-7, The Yes-Men, Richie & the Creeps, Brut 66 and The Pink Fits.


The Protons had some great support slots during their time, sharing stages with Dinosaur Jr, Public Image Limited, The Buzzcocks, Henry Rollins, Hoodoo Gurus, Lime Spiders, The Hitmen, The Hard-Ons and more.


A hugely important band in the Australian hard rock landscape, and Laneway Music is proud to make their music available digitally worldwide.
