PHOTOS: Byron Bay’s (ex Bondi) reformed and renewed rock icons Cog lit up The Northern again on Friday night as they hosted a sold out show for their local tribe – a precursor show ahead of the release of their first new music in years, coming early in 2018.
Opening for Cog were Gold Coast ball tearers Hammers who put on one of the best support-band acts we’ve seen in a long time, if you haven’t checked these guys out yet then give yourself an uppercut.
We’re told that this show made the previous night’s sauna at the Gold Coast’s Miami Marketta look and sound like a train wreck in comparison with reports that the Marketta show was so blistering hot, humid and unbearably packed that people actually bailed half way through.
Cog, led by a dominating Flynn Gower on guitar and vocals, ran through a set of classic and spellbinding Cog anthems and lesser-played tracks from their catalogue including What If, The River Song, Charades, Bird Of Feather and The Town Of Lincoln, finishing with a mesmerising rendition of Bitter Pills.
