Jim Rockfords Moving at the Speed of sound


Motorbilly, post-punk rock & roll band delivers

The Jim Rockfords have accumulated a decent-sized local fanbase and are known to perform energetic and highly entertaining sets. The occasional incendiary guitar lick from Phill Wilson and Fred Noonan, combined with the kicking and screaming of harmonica enthusiast and frontman Junior Hickey, are proven to get punters moving. Their newest material, as heard on their debut 11-track Moving At The Speed Of Sound, provides a similar feeling to what you’d expect from one of their shows, taking cues from Etta James, Radio Birdman and the Flamin’ Groovies, they’ve perfected the art of garage punk rock and delivered it simply, effectively and straight into your face. This straight-up style coupled with rock-hard bass lines from the very talented Kylie Lovejoy and powerful beats from drummer Mitch “Mayhem” Humphrys pull together a sound that references the ’50s as much as now and won’t disappoint faithful motorbilly rockers.
