I’ve been rocking out until the sweat flies on the dance floor to Melbourne band, Cocophonics, a classic all-original pub rock band with swampy, punky elements. Their sound is hard and driving, with an old school attitude. They describe themselves as progressive retro, rock but not roll. Inspirations include Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Paul Kelly, White Stripes, Violent Femmes, Queens of the Stone Age, Pixies, and Iggy Pop.
