The origins of New Zealand's Verlaines can be traced back as early as 1979, with the group's founder Graeme Downes took direct inspiration from fellow Dunedin group, the Clean to form a band of his own. It wasn't until 1981 that the group made their first public appearance with their initial five-piece line-up. The band have so far released seven full-length albums on three different labels, one mini album, three singles and two compilations.
Loci (1) agit-rawk band, 2002-present; (2) Acoustic Folk artist (1) Loci are a UK based rock band. Their aggressive, spasmodic music and live performances typify agit-rawk. Loci consist of Ben Rosser, Janet Jaurgeui, & Tim Thorne. They released the Filtered to Function in at the end of 2006. The band self-recorded and produced the release - the CD inlay quotes the release as being recorded on thedeathstrip. Tracks from the EP are available from their official website, www.locionline.com. Their most recent EP Medic was released winter 2008.
