The Side Effects


One of the earliest Stink Magnetic outfits – a surf-rock group from the Whanganui-Manawatu region.

Their sole album (a CDr release called ‘Apache Gold’) was reissued on Kato, again as a CDr. The members of the group are mysterious (as was the tradition with most Stink Magnetic groups), however Willie ‘Boss Christ‘ McKay and label-head Dylan Herkes are confirmed members.

The Side Effects – “Papatuanuku” from the South Pacific Surf Trash compilation on Stink Magnetic.

The group would eventually slim down to the guitar-less organ-driven surf group The Chandeliers.
