Time Lord Rock

Missing David Tennant already? He hasn’t even gone yet, but just in case you’re feeling all wistful and emotional about it, why not try your hand at some songwriting?

Yes, you read that that right. Following in the footsteps of Wizard Rock, the time has come for Time Lord Rock, or Trock.

Basically, it’s about making music dedicated to Doctor Who… like being an amateur Murray Gold.

There are band names like The Medusa Cascade, Heart of the TARDIS, and Quantum Locked, and Trock looks poised to become a referential – and then self-referential – frenzy for those musically-inclined hardcore Doctor Who fans.

Great band names though I think you will agree. A chap calling himself Nerimon is behind it all, and his own project, named Chameleon Circuit, has produced the tracks "Blink" and "An Awful Lot of Running" which are considered to be among the movement’s pinnacles to date.
