Thumlock – Lunar Mountain Sunrise (Full Album) Thumlock is a Psychedelic/Stoner Rock band hailing from Wollongong, Australia. Lunar Mountain Sunrise is their classic from way back in 1999. Available for the first time in 2019 on Vinyl. In the late nineties Wollongong had began to develop a strong fuzzy guitar rock underground inspired by the successes earlier that decade from Tumbleweed. At the forefront of the movement were four guys taking influence from the likes of Hawkwind and Blue Cheer to create their own brand of heavy psychedelic rock. The band were Thumlock.
After self-releasing their debut EP ‘Dripping Silver Heat’, it was their epic second six track release ‘Lunar Mountain Sunrise’ that propelled the band to wider audiences. The first release on the newly formed local label High Beam Music, the lead track ‘Starquake’ became a staple of Triple J’s heavy music show at the time and gained the band a cult international following. With high praise for the release coming in across the global ‘stoner rock’ underground, the band toured regularly throughout Australia, but never got the chance to tour internationally despite plenty of international tour offers.
1999 was a time when physical music sales were crashing and therefore ‘Lunar Mountain Sunrise’ was only ever released on CD, never getting the vinyl release it deserved. Now, twenty years later it’s finally available on vinyl for the first time. Pressed on high quality 180 gram vinyl and housed in a deluxe gatefold cover with brand new artwork, the release is limited to just 300 copies worldwide.
