The Stereo Bus


The pop outgrowth of Ex-Christchurch song-writer Dave Yetton (Ex Jean-Paul Sartre Experience), who’s backing band has included a couple generations of well-known kiwi performers, including Pluto‘s rhythm section at one point.

Made a splash in the mid/late 90s with a pretty swell, but ultimately pretty twee debut and a less rock, more soppy follow-up. They didn’t quite have the hooks and general wacky attraction of JPS at their peak, but they’re ok. The group disappeared in 2000, but ultimately resurfaced in late 2011, though no new songs materialized.
