Alternative Rock

Rook

There is more than one band with this name. 1. Rook were a rock band from Melbourne, Victoria. Formed in 2005 and split up in 2010. They played their last show at the Corner Hotel on 30th of January 2010. “… Melbourne heavy rockers Rook fired up the crowd with tracks from their ’Transitions’ EP. Whilst being a sonically impressive recording, Transitions really comes to life in a live capacity, each track inflating, amplifying and escalating flaunting layers of sound often veiled by the recording process.

Nunchukka Superfly

From http://www.myspace.com/nunchukkasuperfly NUNCHUKKA SUPERFLY ARE ALIVE AND WELL IN SYDNEY!!! Unless you've been living in a cave for the last twenty years you would have heard of THE HARD-ONS: yes, the Hard-ons, that legendary multi-racial punk band that lay waste to all and sundry before them with their "Motorhead meets Beach Boys" death-pop sonic assault, and that continues to this day, to leave foot prints on the top of your skull with their violent yet well-meaning aural attack.
