Jazz is Dead will showcase the first artistic offering from Sydney guitarist/vocalist Oliver Thorpe. A collective formed through the mutual appreciation of rock and of roll, the group features local heavy weights Miles "Cannonball" Thomas on drums and cymbals and Brendan Clark on bass and effects. This will be the debut performance for this new group after many hours of honing their skills both in the shed and out.

Since the release of their debut album “Tense,” Scoredatura has been turning heads, and hurting necks with their unique version of Heavy Metal Jazz. It’s…Guitar shredding, pedal treading, volume knob turning, guitar pick burning, riffs a-blazing, head shaking, cymbal bashing, string thrashing, attempted djenting, David Brenting, gain waving, head banging, Pj’s hair ranging, drop D tuning, Olie Thorpe mooning, ear-plug needing, Cam Undy pleading, harmonics screamin’, tell ‘im he’s dreamin’, finger tapping, string snapping, eyes spinning, Carl Wang winning, jazz fans offending, SIMA will be firing… you get the idea.
