The band consists of Dee-Dee (vocals, guitar), Jules (guitar, vocals), Bambi (bass, vocals) and Sandy (drums).

Atsuhiro Ito was born in 1965. He launched his career as a visual artist in the late '80s, and in '98 began presenting sound performances at art exhibitions and so on. Ito made use of fluorescent lighting (which is also an element of his art installations) in the creation of an original musical device called the optron. He continues to refine the instrument while approaching sound and music from a contemporary-art-based perspective.
Melbourne, Australia noise duo comprising of Mark Groves and Leith Thomas. Brutal power electronics, grunt vocals and fun time bass rumble.
Morten J. Olsen - drums & SuperCollider3
Anders Hana - guitar & keyboard. MoHa! play somewhat loud music influenced by incredibly varied sources. Some say the duo deal in sonic splatter, in a brew of improvisation, noise, computer music and probably some more. Others say it is reminiscent of the conversation your mate has at you on the weekend in a club when he’s had too much to drink and is telling you how great everything is at 100mph. Only instead of your mate it is actually R2D2, which leads you to believe maybe that someone did put something in your drink.
Cymbals Eat Guitars are an indie rock band from Staten Island, New York, United States, who formed in 2005. They consist of Joseph Ferocious (vocals, guitar), Matthew Whipple (bass, vocals), Brian Hamilton (keyboards, vocals) and Matthew Miller (drums). They have released one album, "Why There Are Mountains", which has received glowing reviews since its January 2009 release.
Eat Skull are a quartet hailing from Portland, Oregon, co-masterminded by Rob Enbom (former bushwacker in the ranks of Hospitals and Hole Class) and another original Hospital, Rod Meyer. Like their brethren and forebears, Eat Skull runs a post pattern deep beyond pop and punk. They bring to the game an extrasensory appreciation of New Zealand's South Island Sound (Great Unwashed, Axemen), Cleveland art-damage skronk (Modern Art Studio, X-X), and the wretched excess of forgotten Midwest hardcore (Stiff Legged Sheep, Chemotherapy).
Crab Smasher are a Newcastle, Australia based group of improvisational sound sharks crafting a frenzied hodgepodge of weirdo psychedelic noise rock and experimental pop delicious. The band formed in 2002 as a cheesy electronic novelty noise act and have since mutated through a number of confusing formations into the sellout rock-and-roll hydra that exists today. The lineup currently consists of Grant Hunter, Nicholas French, Marnie Vaughn, and Nathan Martin.
since forming in mid 2006, the postures quickly marked out their own unique sonic territories. the line-up of michael (guitar, primary hollering, baritone guitar), michael (drums, bass), and jeremy (guitar, synth, auxillary hollering, drums) have an anything-goes approach to song writing, incorporating elements of post-rock, metal, disco, kraut-rock, doom, punk, and no-wave, with lyrical inspiration drawn from disparate subjects such as the nature of insanity, the edge of the known universe, the apocalypse, and charleton heston.
Formerly called Jodi Moore as a tribute to an acquaintance who didn't want the honour of seeing her name in the street press, The Stabs acquired their new name not long after starting to play irregular gigs at small Melbourne venues around 2003. They have the honour of clearing the 'Airport Lounge' at Monash Uni faster than any other lunchtime act, with only three diehards ending up braving the wall of noise for the whole set.
