  • Music


It’s been a long five years, but arguably Australia’s premiere political prog band has resurfaced, and done so in particular style.

COG’s return to the stage started on Friday night at The Great Northern Backroom with support from killer Sydney 4-piece instrumental melodic act Sleep Makes Waves. The vibes were solid throughout the evening, with punters affording the support act a generous amount of support and attention, and holding nervous energy whilst awaiting the presence of the main act.

Musically, it was like COG had never left. Every riff, beat, line and solo were on par with what you would expect from such a revered part of Australian rock history.

A capacity room carried the energy through the full set, a fitting homecoming/welcome back for this power-trio.
