a brash but likeable auckland-based pop outfit based around the vocal talents of milan borich and tim arnold, who built up a large following through-out new zealand in the early 00s. keyboardist mattias jordan and former head like a hole drummer michael franklin-brown joined during recording their debut ep – with mike hall eventually tagging along in time for the redlightsyndrome full-length, a nicely odd pop debut that pretty accurately captures their live spark. since then the boys have gotten a reputation as difficult to work with prima-donna’s – delaying the release of their hugely successful debut’s follow-up and playing thoroughly uneven sets live.
