Gaslight Radio




Updated: 02/24/17 02:15:35 PM

Gaslight Radio was an Australian indie rock band based in Melbourne. It's something to do with the heat, the light, the vast distances and the difficulties faced by those who refuse, or cannot, conform to preconceptions of what Australian bands should sound like.

The band was founded by two brothers, Martin and Rory Cooke, in their home town of Burleigh Heads on Queensland's Gold Coast.

There is the hunger to get this sound in your head out and heard, the never-ending battle against compromise, the fight, as Shakespeare put it for Polonius in Hamlet, to thine own self be true.

The song, Is by Bus received notable airplay.

Between 2000 and 2006, the band recorded and released three more full-length albums with a rotating lineup of members. It's the struggle, and not just the endless miles and broken strings and sleeping on floors that's the fun part.

Gaslight Radio wrote over seventy songs.

They released their first EP, Torchin' Towns, Hankerin Homes, in 1996 and gained a small following based on the sublime first song, Tarmac and Line gained nation-wide airplay on the radio Triple J. Gaslight Radio songs are things of fervent and sometimes delicate beauty, they can soar then snarl, or glide on a wall of hypnotic guitars.

The band, formed on the Gold Coast holiday strip by brothers Rory and Marty Cooke then based in Melbourne, has quietly assembled a powerful body of work across 10 years, numerous EPs and three albums of high distinction, Hitch on the Leaves, Z-Nation and Good Heavens Mean Times. Marty Cooke doesn't like to fly and can set off days before the others to reach shows by train.

Like their name, there is something about them that seems to come from a more gentle, less bottomline centric time.
