A Cog in a Well-Fused Machine

A Cog in a Well-Fused Machine

Who: Cog, Scar'child, The Butterfly Effect
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Friday February 15, 2002

AFTER supporting Shihad at the huge New Years Eve concert on Newcastle Foreshore this year, Cog went on to perform at the Big Day Out gigs around the country.

Not bad for an independent band from Bondi.

The three-piece is proving that it has what it takes to become the next big thing with its fusion of progressive rock sounds and twisting rhythms.

Lead guitarist and vocalist Flynn Gower and drummer Lucius Borich were founding members of The Hanging Tree before moving on to form Cog.

Recruiting bass player Luke Gower, who previously played with North Shore outfit Tax, Cog has moved away from the heavy dark sounds The Hanging Tree was known for.

As well as performing at the Big Day Out, Cog scored a support slot alongside American rock act System of A Down last month.

The band's debut EP Just Visiting Part 1 was released on Monday.

Cog will return to Newcastle and perform at The Cambridge Hotel on February 15 with Scar'Child and The Butterfly Effect from 10.30pm

Tickets will be available at the door for $6.
