After Bali bomb blast, The Hydrant made a very important decision, that they had to do something for Bali trough songs and music. The were participate in many album compilations dedicated for Bali bomb blast victims. On 2006 they had a record contract with Electrohell Record, the indie recording company in Bali. Saturday Night Riot was released on that year and that was the first Rockabilly album in Indonesia!.

The Hydrant made the very first debut appearance in Jakarta after the first album released, and gotattention many major record labels. With a fresh style for Indonesia music scene, very cool 50’s outfit, big greasy hair and outstanding stage performance, everybody was so shocked. The Hydrant had a style that never happened in Indonesia that time. The sound, the rhythm was rock solid yet loose, the singer was “Black Elvis”, the stand up drummer, the big bass, and the guitar playing demanded respect, elegant yet hard, jazzy yet completely rocking.

The Hydrant signed their second album with major record label EMI Music Indonesia, Rockabilly Live! in 2007. Even they only had 1 album contract, that wasn’t such a big thing to tackle their passion for this musical form called Rockabilly.

After a very hard year on 2008, 2 old band members, Zio and Morris were decided to resign, and it was a very difficult time for The Hydrant. Finally two brothers of the last men standing, Marshello and Wis, join the band! They are Christopper and Adi, a very talented musicians now become a new members of The Hydrant. Rockabilly still on, with 2 new members made The Hydrant more and more exciting, on 2009 a very Mexican Dark

Rockabilly album finally released, Bali Bandidos. Once again, this album is something different, Rolling Stone, one of the best magazine in the world made a very positive review for this album. The opportunity to show this good music and positive vibe will never stop, July 2009 the 4-piece Bandidos were invited to the big music festival in Europe, Bazant Pohoda which is in Slovakia, and once again the band made a very beautiful impression to European audiences.
