Bruce Russell is a New Zealand experimental musician and writer. He is a founding member and the guitarist of noise rock trio The Dead C and free noise combo A Handful of Dust (with Alastair Galbraith). Russell established the Xpressway label in the 1980′s to release music by experimental New Zealand artists, including many who’d split from Flying Nun as the label began to eschew its lo-fi beginnings to pursue a more commercial sound. Russell also established Corpus Hermeticum, an imprint for New Zealand and international artists, exploring free noise and improvisation. In 2009, Russell published Left Handed Blows: Writing on Sound 1993-2009. He continues to write for publications including The Wire.
Bruce has spent recent years researching and writing towards what he considers towards a new theory of improvisation based on the concept of mis-competence.

Miranda Liebscher and Tobias Brodel are two human artists. Their average height is ~170cm whilst their combined mass is approximately 140kg. With similar eye and hair colours the two are often mistaken for siblings. Toby is more pale, and a bit freckly, whilst Miranda emits a golden glow. Their music is forgotten guitars and tarot incantations, with a singular focus on raising spiritual awareness, distracted by everything equally.
