Melbourne Rockers Lieutenant Jam compile a mixture of genres ranging from the punk origins of NOFX, The Clash to the grunge tones of Nirvana and lyrics styles of The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys. All the members are composers, each with unique skill’s and style. Anthony Ross, dynamic and explosive on lead vocals, rock guitarist Joel Melbourne, drummer Fernando Castaneda and James Collingridge keeping it fresh on the bass.
