Frenzal Rhomb

If you get a chance to go and see these punk rockers in person, take it! Because the Sydney based band is known as controversial - and for numerous reasons, we read on Wikipedia.

Their lyrics, stage behavior, song titles, album covers and even their veganism are experienced as shocking by some.

What does band name Frenzal Rhomb mean - Fresnel Rhomb - Light refractionAlthough we are in the dark about why the band chose the name Frenzal Rhomb, we can shed some light on the inspiration source: it is a corruption of Fresnel Rhomb, a prism-like device that French physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel (1788-1827) designed in 1817 and that aims to create circularly polarized light.

Fresnels invention is used in lighthouses and camera viewfinders.

Active: 1992-present, AUS
