Radio Spectacular!!!

Phebe and Harry met in 2005 on MySpace and five months later Harry had moved from Bundaberg to Adelaide so they could be together. Harry had been in Brisbane hardcore band Slain of Myself and was a keen piano and guitar player. Phebe had no previous musical endevours, other than the few years of recorder she did in primary school. As a joke they wrote and recorded a few songs Little Stevie and Waltz Of The Fuzzy Peach King and put them up on Harry's music page www.myspace.
