Caught Up in a Frenzy

The mighty Frenzal Rhomb decided to add an ‘In the Loop’ date to their ‘Friendless Summer’ tour, taking in Lorne’s Lorne Hotel on December 10.
Cast your mind back to 1992 for a moment, if you’re old enough, and the first Big Day Out is held in Australia. CDs, meanwhile, would surpass cassette tapes as the preferred medium for recorded music. In the Sydney suburb of Newtown, Frenzal Rhomb was created following an experiment in which someone seeking to increase the power of punk rock convinced some young slackers to take part in some virtual reality punk rock-enhancing experiments. The band’s latest album is 2011’s Smoko at the Pet Food Factory.
