manic christchurch outfit based around the extreme bass guitar talents of ari freeman, with drumming by andrew robins (also of substandard), piccolo bass by andrew moore and the junk percussion of mike fordham (original member adrian currie moved to wellington in 2002). after playing around christchurch for over a year (and finishing in the top 4 of the dux’s annual band competition), they released their self-recorded debut ep ‘delusion’ independently. their music is a mixture of funk and hard-core (like a suped up, wild version of can), the afforementioned junk percussion, absurdist lyrics and over-the-top instrumentation and showmanship.
