SWIRL – 1991 – 1997

 

 

 

  • Swirl began as a three-piece band, guitar, bass and drums. We released music through record companies, Half a Cow Records, Regular Records, Festival Records, Dirt Records (US), Kitty Records (Japan).
  • A publishing deal with Universal resulted in songs being included in the movie Blackrock, and in the TV series, Good Guys, Bad Guys.
  • We played locally and nationally with occasional big support slots with international acts including My Bloody Valentine and The Lemonheads. Also played at iconic Australian Festivals the Big Day Out and Livid.
  • In 1993, we recorded The Last Unicorn in Sydney, and mixed the album in Boston, followed by an East Coast tour, and in 1994 we toured the US more extensively, doing 25 shows in 30 days on the college music circuit beginning in New York and finishing in San Francisco.
