Spurious Transients


Lead Guitar, Drums, Violin, Trumpet, Saxophone, Keyboard, Background Singer, Flute, Electronic Music, Clarinet.


Spurious Transients has been my own avant garde/electronics+guitar/psychedelic/krautrock musical project for many years now and has operated as both a solo act and as a full band. At one point in 2015 we had seven people in the band (which made for a rather crowded stage), but the most recent live outing has consisted of just me, Gavin Lloyd Wilson, triggering samples and patches from a laptop, whilst playing guitar and bass VI via a bunch of pedals and a looper.

I have a whole bunch of material waiting to be recorded but would like input from other like-minded musicians. Ideally I'd like to record a bran new album of material. I already have some demos.

Spurious Transients has already released a full-length album ("Portraits Of A Landscape", 2014) which has received radio play and some very positive reviews, plus in 2015 we released an EP, the jazzy psychedelic "Planet Cantaloupe", which was issued as a 7" yellow vinyl record to tie in with the band's live appearance at Fruit De Mer Records' "The 13th Dream Of Dr Sardonicus: Festival Of Psychedelia" held in Cardigan, South West Wales. Other tracks have appeared on compilation albums.

Especially interested in keyboard players, electronic music wizards, laptop-based musicians, sax, clarinet, flute, trumpet... A tasty guitarist wouldn't go amiss particularly if he or she knows who Michael Rother and Michael Karoli are and could also switch to bass when required. Drums?... You betcha!

For myself, I play bass, guitar, electronics, and outside of Spurious Transients I have been one half of instrumental duo The Spookers, have played bass for acclaimed spacerockers Sendelica and their offshoot The Sendelica Drone Band, and additionally I currently play bass for local punk outfit Red & The Hogweeds.

If you are a local musician into experimental music, particularly the psychedelic, prog and krautrock genres, please get in touch. Maybe we could work together.
