Tang
This band continued my creative relationship with drummer John Fredericks after Ortonomy finished up and it indulged a penchant for the style of the band Primus we all had at the time. Unfortunately over time that penchant wore thin for me and ofter Johnno moved interstate I hung around just long enough to complete our CD. The line up was: myself on guitar, voice and writing songs, Nathan Laidler on bass, voice and writing songs and John Fredericks on drums. All the songs in this band had a black comic tone and we reveled in a certain grotesque cartooniness. I have to say I’m very proud of the cover art I designed which features a set of plasticine caricatures I made of the band, and photos featuring me with perfectly straight super long hair and my wife Bec in a chicken costume. With a few more personnel shuffles somehow Nathan has managed to keep Tang going to this day (4 and a half years later), I admire his tenacity. Our achievements, apart from making the recording, included again winning the NMIT heats of the National Campus Bands Competition, beating the soon be very successful hip-hop band Fizard, goes to show competitions don’t mean all that much. We also won the band category in the 2004 Acoustic Underground competition.
