Amplifier Machine

Amplifier Machine began in 2002 with James Dixon (Swordfish, Supagroop, James Dixon) on guitar/Korg/ piano, Seth Rees (The Spheres,This Is Your Captain Speaking,I Want A Hovercraft, Seth Rees) on drums/violin/samples/piano/ guitar and Alex Jarvis (Automatic,Black Cab,Registered Nurse, Alex Jarvis) on guitar/drums, with the intention of combining their songwriting talents.

Something about getting three solo artists together, or maybe something about what rehearsing for so long in a freezing Collingwood warehouse does to the brain, caused the pop-bred members of Amplifier Machine to spiral out into a peculiar music of inquisitive, atmospheric, half-improvised mini-epics.

Amplifier Machine is a self-described experiment inanemocratic process and near-improvisation (anemocracy = rule by whim or the wind). Through earnest discussion and endless unending jams, Amplifier Machine came upon The Rule: that when the other two members have settled, it’s your turn to change.
