Biography

Tumbleweed is firstly a highly influential Australian rock band from the 90’s, a country rock band from Norway and a bonecrushing instro/surf band from Sweden.

Tumbleweed (Australia) filled the stoner-rock void in Australia during the heavy grunge years of the 1990s. As the opening band for Nirvana on their 1992 tour of Australia, Tumbleweed was able to reach out into the mainstream with their crunchy-psychedelica and the subtle vocal stylings of singer Richie Lewis. The original line up of the band have recently reformed and are playign around Australia with a double cd retrsopective of their Waterfront Records era songs due out late 2010 on Aztec Music.

Tumbleweed (Sweden) is bonecrushing instro/surf in the same league as Mr Dick Dale. Tumbleweed combines super reverboholic guitar with driving bass and piledriving drums. Take hammondorgan from the likes of Booker T. And The MG’s and add to the lightningfast but also sometimes slow and groovy songs
