Describe Your Sound

Experimental pop music from Perth, Western Australia. We make songs using
guitars, synthesizers, drums, machines, theremins, violins and whatever
else we can find in the back shed. Sometimes the results are pretty,
sometimes ugly, sometimes both.

Formation

We were all trying to borrow the same video from our local video store and it was just getting ridiculous. We eventually agreed to form a band so we could watch videos together. It worked great.

Influences

The whole wild panorama but specifically we love & have loved: Mink Mussel Creek and its progeny, Carbuncle, MmHmMm, Kucka, Savoir, Erasers, Usurper of Modern Medicine, Rabbit Island, SmRts, Grace Barbé, Mental Powers, Craig McElhinney, Drowning Horse, Mudlark, Cosmo Gets, Cow Parade Cow, perth (the band), Fall Electric, to name a small fraction.

Shared Bills With

Locally, see above + a heap more... bands we've played from over east include Ouch My Face, Eagle & The Worm, Green Green Green, and others. Hella famous bands we have shared bills with include Deerhunter, Ariel Pink, The Go! Team, Best Coast, Holy Fuck and others although none of them remember us so don't ask them to corroborate.

Career Highlights

Writing songs. Playing fun shows. Recording records. Releasing records.
Free beer. Getting a 1 hour radio show dedicated to us in Israel (true
story).

Current Activity

Deep percolation mod... honing grooves, writing, getting edgy new haircuts. Remixing some tracks for other bands, exciting shows coming up also.

Shared Members With

Spirit Level, Make Them Suffer, Dan Firkin Trio, Lilt, others.
