Major Tom & The Atoms launch their new single and filmclip 'Boom Boom Boom' over four Wednesday nights in May at Cherry Bar with a residency titled 'Jim, Janis, Jimi and Drake.'

'Jim, Janis, Jimi and Drake' will pay tribute to the fallen angels of rock: Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Nick Drake, all of whom tragically died within a few short years of each other between 1970 and 1974. They were all aged 27, except Drake who was just 26.

Each week will feature original setlists, covers, DJ sets, guest vocalists and support bands to suit the theme:

Wed May 7: Jim Morrison
Wed May 14: Janis Joplin
Wed May 21: Jimi Hendrix
Wed May 28: Nick Drake

And where better to pay tribute to the deities of rock than Melbourne's own temple of rock - Cherry Bar!

It's all to celebrate the launch of Major Tom & The Atoms new single and filmclip 'Boom Boom Boom', a toe-tapping, swaggering rhythm and blues romp which name-checks all the respectable late greats: "We've passed the age of Jim Morrison, so we just paint his face. Cobain, Hendrix, Jones, Joplin..."

'Boom Boom Boom' is the second single off Major Tom & The Atoms' debut album 'Heroes, Villains, Boom Boom Boom!' and is proof that while many of the rock greats may be long gone, rock itself is still very much alive and kicking in 2014 - on Wednesday nights at Cherry Bar!
