genre: alt-rock | grunge
label: Sunset Records
Melbourne, Australia’s Tenpenny Joke is certainly not new to the indie-music scene as their last full-length disc, Ambush On All Sides, was released in 2007. They are, however, new to us here at Froglix and when our friends at musicSUBMIT.com introduced us to their leviathan sound we just had to add them to the broadcast. The brand of alt-rock laid down by Anthony Casey (vocals), Brian Rimmer (lead guitar/vocals), Jay Pinfold (drums), Pete Coon (guitar) and Jules Senserrick (bass) is poignant, powerful and prolific and hearkens back to the glory days of grunge when Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, etc. reigned supreme.
