Lavaland Flows Onto Scene with Unique Electronic Pop



Who: Lavaland, Luke
Where: SJ's on Beaumont
Author: Jade Lazerevic
When: Thursday December 6, 2001

ONE reason why Lavaland has remained a two piece for so long is because they insisted that their bass player do the robot dance every time a synthesiser was played.

This, among other things, is the reason why Lavaland took so long to find musicians who could keep up with the weird dynamics that drive the talented band.

Made up of Jeremy Green and Mark Bowring, Lavaland has left its stamp of electronic pop rock all over radio and TV in the past few months.

Lavaland came to surface when Green teamed up with Bowring after joining his band.

This union eventually led to the demise of the band and resulted in a Lavaland two piece.

'Jeremy used to sit in the corner of the rehearsal room just hooting with derision and rolling his eyes in disgust,' Bowring said.

'It became so uncomfortable for the other band members that they all stopped turning up to rehearsals.'

But Green was obviously doing something right because the band has just released a new single titled Everwonder on BMG Music.

Lavaland will perform as a four piece at SJ's Hotel tomorrow night with Luke from 10pm.
