Nuvo Bloc


Nuvo Bloc formed in 1980 when members of Adelaide groups Terminal Twist, The U-Bombs and Lemme Caution grew tired of playing straight-ahead punk rock. With Vonni Rollan on vocals, the six piece band quickly attracted a large audience and released their self-financed first single 'Atomic Fiction' later the same year. The dark new wave sounds of the single could almost be an entirely different band to the tribal stylings of 'Never Mind', released on 5MMM's 'Compilation Album of Adelaide Bands 1980' by the local public radio station.

The dark new wave sounds of the single could almost be an entirely different band to the tribal stylings of 'Never Mind', released on 5MMM's 'Compilation Album of Adelaide Bands 1980' by the local public radio station. "We figured that because it was so different from our other songs, people would remeber it," says drummer Roy Erzinger about 'Never Mind'. "In 1980 there was a void left by the demise of punk, and there seemed to be a sense of anything goes.

Using a combination of Macedonian riffs and African rhythms, basically recorded 'live' in the studio, 'Never Mind' should almost be considered an 'anti-pop' song." Frustrated by music industry disinterest, the band soon splintered, with three members heading to Sydney to continue briefly as an electronic trio. From 'Can't Stop It! II' sleeve notes by Guy Blackman. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
