On 16/2/02 Ross Cottee fell from a 5th Floor apartment whilst on holiday in Japan. Playing bass at the time for Melbourne noise rock outfit Riff Random, Ross heavily influenced the band’s early “trash” sound and punk rock aesthetic that saw them placed on the bill at the Reading and Leads festivals as well as numerous support slots on international tours. Emerging from his coma Ross worked tirelessly on his rehabilitation and was equally as unwavering with his music. Ross picked up his bass and guitar at every possible moment, often playing until he ached with exhaustion. Fast forward to 2008 - Ross is armed with a fresh outlook on life, a new band and is sounding better than ever. Timezones is raw in sound and equally raw in emotion. Ross’ abrasive tones are coupled with garage sounds that transgress time itself to create punk rock masterpieces. Easily placed alongside the works of Daniel Johnston’s basement tapes and musically akin with the Moldy Peaches, TimeZones have produced some timeless songs at their unrefined best. Ross’ lyrics are a poetic polaroid of his life post-recovery, while his phrasing is pure genius.
