1998 – present (21 years)
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
1) Rocket Science was an emo/indie band, active in the mid 1990's. They released two 7"s, both in 1996. Soon after, they changed their name to Gravity Wins Again. Fans of Christie Front Drive will like this.
2) Rocket Science emerged from Melbourne in mid-1998. The indie rock four-piece, which consists of Roman Tucker (vocals), Kit Warhurst (drums), Dave Gray (bass), and Paul Maybury (guitar), had dreams of making it big in music since childhood. They compose a gritty, glam rock sound that's a little more edgy than the Vines' candied punk. Their first song, "Welcome Aboard," was written on the same day Rocket Science came together. From there, they built an Australian following, which later collected U.K. fans. Opening dates with Mudhoney and the Supersuckers following into 2000 and their debut full-length, Welcome Aboard the 3C10, appeared the next year. Rocket Science's sleazy, arrogant style was a buzz well into 2002 when they recorded the sophomore effort, Contact High. It wouldn't see a release date in Europe until mid-2003; however, fans tied themselves over with the electric Run Like a Gun EP which appeared earlier that spring.
3) Free jazz quartet with Craig Taborn, Evan Parker, Peter Evans, and Sam Pluta
