Rollerball arrived as a fully formed explosion of retro futuristic groove in 1999 with their debut release the stoner classic Lost in Space. Skip to 2005's Broken Open and Rollerball are a leaner snarling rock beast, stripped to the bone, the sound of a band at the top of their game. Broken Open EP features Commom Thread and Broken Open from Oversize, produced by Oz rock legend Mark Opitz (AC/DC, INXS) & six live tracks recorded at the Marquee including scorching versions of Highly Likely, Loungeroom Lifer and Stevie Wright's monster Black Eyed Bruiser.
SGT Thunderhoof has become one of my favourite bands…..ever. And if I was held at gun point and asked which was my favourite albums from them, it would be this one, Ride of the Hoof. I listen to ST a lot but my go-to album is this one. If I’m not careful, I don’t give the other ST albums a fair go and that would just be depriving me of the greatness of all their other awesome tunes. With only a limited number of hours in the day, this posses quiet a conundrum. Harry Harrison
