Sferic Experiment

Guitarist Chris Heazlewood and drummer Sean O’Rielly (both pre-King Loser fame), violinist Susan Ballard, Gavin Shaw (Childrens Television Workshop), and Greg Cairns experimental / avant-garde outfit from dunedin. Kinda exploded back in 1989, with the remains casually reissued on Drunken Fish post-breakup. The album itself (eight mile) is a murky, lo-fi live recording of occasionally brilliant swamp-rock.
