When he was growing up in Melbourne Roman Tucker didn't just wish he was in a band called Rocket Science. He was already formulating the molecular structure.
"The beginnings of my time in music can be traced back to a specific
incident" he remembers.
"I was in a band and because we were so young we were on the front page of the local music magazine. The headline was 'Kid Punk Craze Rocks Melbourne'. The interview went something like 'ten year old Roman Tucker walks into the room holding hands with an attractive young woman - his mother..."
The point being that Rocket Science isn't something you can achieve
overnight. Yet Fifteen years on from that pre-teen insurrection, Roman and his truly inspirational band are still driven by a belief in tapping into the primal formula which drives rock'n'roll.
"There has always been an element of catharsis in playing live for me" he explains.
"I've been obsessed with it for as long as I can remember. What I'm
searching for is that one moment of realisation where anything becomes possible, where you lose yourself completely. It may only happen for a split second in the night's show but it's all worth it just for that feeling.."
