Sydney band, DRILL was a four piece that formed in 1992.
They have an experimental mixture of sounds but are intense and abrasive to say the least!!
After 6 months of playing in and around Sydney, they toured Melbourne on the back of a Zen Studios compilation “The Gospel According to St Peters”.
It wasn’t long before they started making a name for themselves with their heavily distorted sounds and theatrics.
In 1993 they released a limited edition 7″ titled “Ballman” which quickly sold out.
Although they never really had a contracted manager or agent, many bands selected drill as a support act. These bands included, Frenzal Rhomb, Front End Loader, Budd and Lawnsmell. They toured Melbourne half a dozen times and supported the like of Spiderbait and Shihad.
In 1995 they released the E.P “Spin Dry the Adjudicator”, making it to number 5 in the Red Eye Charts. They heavily toured for the E.P and featured at Sydney’s Metro for a Eddie Magazine Launch. After this show, the band stopped as some members were chasing Uni degrees.
In 2012 Drill has reformed and will try and penetrate the tinnitus of unsuspecting punters.
