The Electricka Zoo

The debut album from the Hutt Valley guitar/bass and live electronica duo – full of eclectic electric sonic surprises (2017).


Our first collaboration with the even more legendary & underground artist Snake Beings (2015)

The Winter: Exit Points

Free improvisations that swerve from acoustic folk/blues with hints of Asian, Celtic, and Balkan influences, to electro-acoustic soundscapes, abstract dissonance, and pots & pans percussion (2015).


ネオン列車の風景 Neon Train Landscapes

in the non-idiomatic idiom in Norway

Free (in both senses) jazz from Wellington, Aotearoa (1999/2014)

The Marion Flow

Electric and acoustic songs, spoken word and instrumentals – an almost-recognised New Zealand classic (19992001)

Waiting for the Drummer

Taranaki improvised rock/noise deconstruction with  sputtering synth, air-sucking turntables, didgeridoo and sundry toys providing layers of surreal abstraction (1999/2006)

Scratched Surface

The debut album – a genuine lo-fi postpunk singer/songwriter artifact from the ’90s (1997-1998)
