||Mercenary Type was formed around the songwriting of guitarist/vocalist Bruce Stewart.
"For years I was obsessed with recording (knowing how difficut it had been to keep a band together), and so always being involved with the machinery - always writing new songs, experimenting with technology but alas, turning into an engineer! Inspiration finally came when bassist Colleen Bell and I decided to return to live playing. We were most inspired by a series of jams with old Melbourne band-buddy Nigel Rough (Jim Keays/ Mike Rudd). These jams were always powerful and rocky - like going back to Cream or ZZ Top. Mercenary Type was forged through these jams - Colleen and I taking on much bigger roles and bigger lines that sparked sdeas for my original songs."
With the aid of new drummer Laurie Keating (John Paul Young/Doug Parkinson) - Mercenary Type was born: an original power-trio that also includes songs by King Crimson, Billy Cobham, Tommy Bolin and Edgar Winter.
