Well it’s official – Wolfmother have finally made it as a band. Because of their international success, their many awards, their songs being used in movies, games or ads? Nope. Because they have a cover band!
Rehtom Flow (Wolfmother backwards if you didn’t spot that yet) are a Danish band growing in popularity. General consensus on the forums is that they are pretty good (though the lead singer maybe doesn’t match Stockdale’s high notes). Here’s a shot of them in action:
Check out their MySpace, listen to Dimension, judge for yourself.

Although the band haven’t been in the public eye much this last year, and with still no news of the album, it may be somewhat surprising, if you aren’t an Aussie, that the band just won another award.
The APRA awards (Australian Performing Right Association) are an annual ceremony recognising achievements in Australian music. This year the top awards were taken by Daniel Johns from Silverchair – he picked up two awards for the song Straight Lines (Song of the Year and Most Played Australian Work), and one for Songwriter of the Year – the third time he has won this award and the only artist in the awards history to have done so.
So back to Wolfmother, what did they win? Well it was their international success that was recognised, winning Most Played Australian Work Overseas for Woman. Which is quite a good indicator of how well received the band has been globally, perhaps more so than any other Australian band of recent times.
Congratulations, boys! Hope you are celebrating by polishing off the second album to get it ready for release.

Well thanks for all of the entries! Over 40 in all which is awesome.
Well some of you probably noticed that there are different reported tracks lengths depending on where you look, and on this particular CD the length is different to the album or single. The correct answer was:
DIMENSION – ORIGINAL (04:26)
Which means that some of you got it right! Six in fact:
- the winner (hopefully)
And by totally random deduction, the winner is … Wolfranco! Congratulations and I’ll be dropping you an email shortly to get your shipping details.
Watch this space for another comp soon.
