Once upon a time, there was a shy little boy growing up in the streets of Hobart, in Tasmania. He spent most of his time circling around in his bedroom studio, dreaming of forming a band and touring the world. Anthony Rochester's room is full of the tender delicate sounds of Burt Bacharach, France Gall, Stereolab, The Carpenters and The Lucksmiths. He plays all instruments on his own and has a new (fourth!) album out called “Hot Hits ’96”. This is not music for librarians, or for relaxation or for spaceships. This is different, yet lovely.
