Today Unearthed Review is jamming along to Team Truckstar.
Once again, that lonely truckstop, the portable diner of life, has destined that four individuals should be thrust together for a purpose that can only be explained by their love of the big rigs and alternative rock music.
Jack, Joe, Jake and Jim Truckstar met late one night in a forgotten truckstop on the dusty plains of outback New South Wales, Australia, in a place where the wheatfields become a dustbowl and men can haul a load for days without speaking to another soul.
Over a late night ‘fry-up’ it became clear that these four lonely travellers could produce a brand of Rock music that combined a love of a sweet melody with the driving rythmn of an 18-wheeler.
From time to time – who knows where and when, these four truckers (or “Team Truckstars” as they have come to be known) come together to combine their passion for Rock with their love of oversized long haulage vehicles and associated appliances.
So, if you get the chance, why not come on join this convoy of Rock sometime.
When the track “In the fight” opens up you think it’s the second coming of REM’s Orange Crush. But then it turns into angst rock.
The strong driving guitars are a major feature of Team Truckstar.
Sadly the recordings aren’t great and I think we’re all over angsty lyrics?
