w/ The Ocean Party
The back-story of the Sand Pebbles is as colourful as the bands music. Hanging out with Jeff Bridges in LA, pulling down screamers at the MCG, writing scripts for television soap operas, even attending high school with the enfant terrible of Internet libertarianism, Julian Assange – it all contributes to the total aesthetic experience that is the Sand Pebbles. Like a novel you cant put down, there always seems to be another intriguing page in the Sand Pebbles story to explore.
Here’s a little Sand Pebble Trivia…
- Sand Pebbles was formed on the set of notorious Australian soap Neighbours by two of the shows scriptwriters, Ben Michael X and Christopher Hollow
- During the bands hiatus, guitarist Ben Michael X co-wrote, co-produced and helped soundtrack an independent Australian feature film, Is This the Real World, starring
Sean Keenan, Susie Porter and rapper 360
- Singer-guitarist Andrew Tanner once recorded an album with legendary producer T-Bone Burnett and wrote a song at a Hollywood party with actor Jeff Bridges.
……..WOW!”The Sand Pebbles LP, their sixth, came out a few weeks back and is a strong contender for local album of the year, melding electronics and psych-rock with aplomb, revealing more nuances with every play. .. memorable songs with a delightful tendency to stretch out over time, with twisting guitar solos and extended instrumental passages that swagger into the stratosphere.” – Neighbourhood Paper
