Artist Biography
Available in:
Gerling formed in Sydney, Australia during 1993 with the line-up of Darren Cross (guitar, vocals), Presser (real name Paul Towner, drums) and Brad Herdson (guitar, vocals). With an instrumentation of only two guitars and drums, the group initially focussed on creating experimental guitar pop, with their debut release, Sedatives For Dead Radars, being released in 1995 on Steve Pavlovic's Fellaheen label. This was followed by the mini-album, A Day of Research, in 1996. Early 1997 saw the departure of guitarist Brad Herdson, who would go onto form Sonic Emotion Explosion with Liz Payne from Spdfgh. He was temporarily replaced by [artist[Ben Lee[/artist[ for their show at the Sydney Big Day Out, before a permanent replacement came in the way of Canadian Burke Reid. February 1998 saw the band emerge from the studio with the 7" single "Bachelor Pad" on the Trifekta label. November of that year, saw the release of the album, Children of Telepathic Experiences, on Festival's in-house indie label Reliant - setup by former Au Go Go Records head, Bruce Milne. The album saw the band for the first time incorporate electronica in their music, as well as the emergence of the electronic offshoot of the band, Gerlog. The following album, When Young Terrorists Chase the Sun, released in 2001 after delays in the light of the 9-11 attacks in the USA that year, saw the band becoming increasingly electronic, and even having success in the dance scene with single "Dust Me Selecta". The 2003 long player, Bad Blood!!!, marked a return to form as guitars returned to the mix, whilst still retaining an electronic edge. Their latest album, entitled 4, was released on 20 March 2006. The original recording of this album was carried out in the function room of the Annandale Hotel in Sydney, before being re-recorded and mastered in Los Angeles. The album was produced by Ethan Johns, who also worked on Aha Shake Heartbreak with Kings of Leon. Turning the Screws was the iTunes featured download of the week in February 2006. The band are currently on an indefinite hiatus. Front man Darren Cross is now touring with his new one-man indie laptop project the E.L.F.
