Rockfour (Israel)

This week featuring Israel

ROCKFOUR

Rockfour formed in Holon in 1988.  The band started out writing and performing in Hebrew, they had success on the Israeli charts.  After the late 1990’s the band began writing new material in English.  Their first full length album in English Supermarket, was released in 2000. During the recording of Memories of the Never Happened in 2007 the band recorded a cover of Pink Floyd’s debut single “Arnold Layne” and submitted it to a competition created by David Gilmour in honor of composer Syd Barrett’s death. Gilmour picked Rockfour’s version as the best cover of the song, and the band won a day of recording at London’s Abbey Road Studios.  In 2010 the band released a Hebrew album Ha’olam Hamufla for the first time in 15 years.
