Joker And The Thief – Wolfmother + Lyrics

Wolfmother is an Australian hard rock band that formed in Erskineville, Sydney in 2000. Originally comprising vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett, the band has released one studio album Wolfmother (2005) which reached number three on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart. The album also won the 2005 J Award and ARIA Awards for Best Breakthrough Album and Best Rock Album in 2006. “Woman”, a single from the album, won the band their first Grammy Award, for Best Hard Rock Performance, in 2007. In August 2008, Ross and Heskett left the band due to “irreconcilable personal and musical differences”, though Stockdale stated that he would continue using the Wolfmother moniker with new members in the future. After a brief hiatus, as well as two low-key gigs under the alias “White Feather”, new members were revealed in February 2009 guitarist Aidan Nemeth, bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres and drummer Dave Atkins. A second album is currently estimated for a summer 2009 release. While Wolfmother has been identified as being influenced by ’70s rock bands such as Black Sabbath and AC/DC, their official MySpace lists their influences to include mostly ’60s groups such as: Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and The Who, as well as newer acts, including The Avalanches, Radiohead, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon and stoner metal band Kyuss. Surprisingly, they also featured the French electronic group Daft Punk
