Biography

Auckland based 2-piece electronic instrumental Band (i.e. they play live electronic instrumentation with no computers).

The group formed in Grey Lynn in 1998, with Bev taking up drum machines and a sampler and Hamish using loops to compliment his past as a punk drummer (rock’n’roll is still a big element of their music).

Former Meterman drummer Jasper De Roos took over the live drumming role on their 2003 release ‘Billion’, put out on Kog side-label Midium, and they have toured with the likes of Jakob.
