Retro heavy rock outfit formed in 2003 by Australians Andrew Stockdale (20 July 1976, New South Wales, Australia; vocals/guitar), Chris Ross (b. Erskinville, New South Wales, Australia; bass/keyboards) and Myles Heskett (b. New South Wales, Australia; drums). The trios 70s-styled hard rock sound began attracting a cult following in their native Sydney and led to a recording contract with the local Modular Records label. Their self-titled debut EP was released at the end of 2004 and had soon shifted more than 10, 000 copies. Tracks such as Dimension and White Unicorn demonstrated the full extent of Wolfmothers devotion to the lyrical ideas of early 70s behemoths Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. While the lyrics may have been something of an acquired taste, the trios musical mash-up of hard rock, grunge and funk rock was delivered with a youthful verve that left it difficult to criticise.
