Bio

Straight To Video are a guitar based four piece from Adelaide. All members met at art colleges, and decided to play music out of boredom and frustration, which has been a huge influence in itself. Since forming, the band has been recording material which they have been selling at their gigs. In total three such cds have been released, leading up to their first manufactured CD Black Solo Ep (rec. Feb 05) out on their own label Sounds of the Zoo. Live the band uses predominantly guitars adding synthesizers, keys and tape loops to create a sonic set, with two members sharing the drum duties which provides an added element. We have been lucky enough to play with such diverse bands as GROUND COMPONENTS / WOLF & CUB / BASEBALL / BIT BY BATS / PHARAOHS / ARCHITECTURE IN HELSINKI / YOU AM I / MESS HALL / PRESTON SCHOOL OF INDUSTRY (usa) / SARAH BLASKO / BATRIDER / THE WHATS / FURTHER / MAX TUNDRA and THE TUCKER B's
