From the vault we have found an incredibly limited supply of the debut Pillow album "Goof Rock High" and even more limited supply of T-Shirts from the disbanded Melbourne rockers. Active in the Melbourne scene in the 90's and 00's, Pillow featured members of King Parrot, Legends of Motorsport, The Ruiner, Duneeater and The Palenecks. With a distinctive sound that could never really be pigeon holed, it would be safe to say they were an amalgamation of all of the aforementioned bands that preceded them. Pillow always remained creative in writing twisted, yet engaging songs with an emphasis on rocking over obscurity, they always bought the party to live shows across the land. Drawing comparison to bands like Clutch, Fu Manchu, Helmet and Ween, it never quite did them justice as their unabashedly Australian approach was undeniable.
