At South By Southwest 2004, young Australian rocksters Riff Random played one of the most buzzed-about late night showcases. After explosive appearances at the Big Day Out festival and in Los Angeles, Austin, New York, Riff Random recently toured the UK with TV On The Radio.
So peoples, hear the signals.
They’re four young guys obsessed by guitar freak outs, noisydelic drones and haunting melody. And after infamous shows of psychadelic meltdown, they’re burning with sonic love...
Every show is a stage-sizzling experience that reaffirms the electrifying power of rock n’ roll. Sure, they’ve got seminal influences (Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Stooges, Love, 60s psychadelia), but this ain’t no tribute. This is something new...
After recently touring with TV On The Radio, earning rave reviews supporting The Datsuns, J Mascis , Jet and the Sleepy Jackson and wowing audiences at the Big Day Out and South By Southwest, Riff Random's live reputation has spread beyond Australian shores.
Riff Random will soon appear at the Reading and Leeds festival and play an October UK tour with Bloc Party.
