* Featuring tracks from Melbourne band Rocket Science *

This week we introduce listeners to Melbourne band Rocket Science who were noted during the ’00s as producing outstanding 60s-sounding garage-rock records and for their visceral live shows and extensive touring.  At one point front man, keyboardist and theremin player Roman Tucker took a nasty fall after a show and ended up with serious amnesia whereby he forget his identity and even his memory of making music.  Amazingly, in time Roman re-learned how to play music and the band even ended up touring Japan with Supergrass.  You can listen to three tracks from the 2004 record ‘Eternal Holiday’ as well as the rockin’ 2008 single ‘With You I’ll Be Someone’.
