3-piece guitar-less surf trio out of Wellington with members using the aliases Capt Hammondhead (Nigel Patterson – screaming vintage organ), Segue Lugosi (Dylan Herkes – over-driven bass guitar), and Trevlac (rock-steady surf drums).
With a distinctive organ driven sound The Chandeliers released a punchy, dynamic debut LP, which (much like their live show) bubbles over with thumping bass and thumping tribal drums. the group is comprised of former Side Effects and Pro-Drag members, associated with the thoroughly rock’n’roll Kato and Stink Magnetic labels.
