Another Repeat Performance of Punk History

Who: Frenzal Rhomb
Where: Fanny's

When: Thursday January 24, 2002

WHEN NOFX decided to return for another tour of Australia, there was no doubt surrounding who they would choose to support them.

Punk pioneers Frenzal Rhomb share a long relationship with the legendary US punk band since they first toured Australia with the band in 1996.

Like a little piece of punk history, Frenzal Rhomb so impressed NOFX's Fat Mike that he signed them up to his label Fat Wreck Chords. Under the guidance of Fat Mike, Frenzal Rhomb saw their single Four Litres released worldwide.

Frenzal Rhomb became the first Australian band to be signed to Fat Wreck Chords and so began their following in the US.

In 1998, Frenzal Rhomb embarked on a 72-date tour with Less Than Jake and Blink 182 before joining the bill on the Vans Warped Tour.

Their biggest release to date, A Man's not a Camel, was also released worldwide and boasted the hit You're not my Friend. The last effort from the group came when they released the album Shut your Mouth worldwide.

Catch Frenzal Rhomb with NOFX again at Fanny's tomorrow night.

Tickets cost $35.
