"The pure energy of Rock n Roll is a language the entire globe can understand
and it just so happens Australia's SUPERSCOPE have a doctorate in the subject."(Julian Tompkin Xpress Magazine)
SUPERSCOPE evolved from the ashes of legendary Perth Power Popsters, The Stonemasons and are taking their melodic brand of rock and attitude to all parts of the globe.
In cahoots with international recording Label ZIP RECORDS, and overseen by such pop luminaries as Dom Mariani (The Stems/Someloves/DM3), Ash Naylor (Even) and Ken Stringfellow (Posies/REM), the 'SCOPE have developed markets in Europe, South America, USA as well as Australia through the release of two EP's (Generally Electric and The Popping Crease), 2 Singles and most recently, the long awaited debut full length album TORPEDO.
Released November 2002, TORPEDO has already made International inroads with licensing rights for manufacture and distribution in Japan recently negotiated with Japanese Label Painted Sky.
With supports for such rocking acts as Buffalo Tom, The Screaming Jets, The New Christs and most recently, The Vines, You Am I and Even, it's not only the ever faithful fans who know this band rock - just ask You Am I and the response would be a resounding thumbs up - and that's cred in our book.
So, as the critics have said:-
